Wire - Map Reference 41°N 93°W


On this date in 1979, Wire released their sixth single, "Map Ref. 41°N 93°W". It was backed by "Go Ahead". The A side appeared on their third album, 154. The B side was a non-LP track that was added as a bonus track on a subsequent CD re-release. 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.
