Live Wire

Live Wire - Pick It Up - 1979 - A&M

Live Wire was a rootsy London pub rock band which played the British pub rock circuit from 1979 to 1981. The band was led by guitarist/vocalist Mike Edwards and over a three year span featured bassist Jeremy Meek, drummer German Gonzales, guitarist Chris Cutler, and guitarist Simon Boswell. Following this debut album, Cutler was replaced by ex-Advertising guitarist Simon Boswell, whose production skills lent the group a more polished, commercial sound. This lineup recorded 1980's No Fright and 1981's Changes Made before breaking up It's a good album, and reminiscent of early Ace, Ian Dury's band, Kilburn and the High Roads, or early Dire Straits without the flashy guitar work. This is a 192 Kbps vinyl rip, so please make allowances for sound. It's quite a rare album, but a good one. For similar music in this genre, check out recordings by Brinsley Schwarz.
