‘120 Minutes’ Rewind: ‘The Ideal Copy’-era Wire goes under the ‘120 X-Ray’

For this week’s installment of “120 Minutes” Rewind, we turn to this Downtown Julie Brown-hosted “120 X-Ray” segment on Wire following the band’s reformation and the recording of 1987’s The Ideal Copy” — the debut of the post-punk legends’ second incarnation.

In the clip, Wire’s member discuss their decision to come back together and the new, more electronic nature of the group’s work. As Colin Newman says, “It’s the same people, but not necessarily the same music.”
