Video: Wire performs ‘Red Barked Trees,’ ‘Map Ref 41N 93W’ on Jimmy Fallon

Mid-way through a short North American tour in support of Red Barked Tree, U.K. post-punk legends Wire dropped by “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” last night for their first American television performance in a quarter century. Check out the band performing the album’s closing track, “Red Barked Trees,’ above, via The Audio Perv. Plus, as is custom these days, the band supplied an extra web-only performance, posted below, of “Map Ref 41N 93W” off 1979’s classic 154.
