Wire - Outdoor Miner


On this date in 1979, Wire released their fourth single, "Outdoor Miner". It is backed by "Practise Makes Perfect". Both tracks appeared on their second album, Chairs Missing, though the A side was a longer version on the single. The single reached the #51 spot on the U.K. singles chart. The London punk/post-punk band went on hiatus in 1980 and the band members worked on other projects. They re-formed in 1985 and have been on and off ever since.
