Wire - Our Swimmer


On this date in 1981, Wire released their seventh single, "Our Swimmer". It was backed by "Midnight Bahnhof Cafe". Neither song appeared on a studio album. The songs had actually been recorded in 1979 but not released. The London punk/post-punk band had already gone 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.
