WIRE PFGO – Wire Pink Flag Guitar Orchestra
For Wire’s 40th anniversary, the Pink Flag Guitar Orchestra performs Pink Flag – April 1, 2017.
On the 1st of April 1977 the band performed their first gig as WIRE at The Roxy in London…
On the 1st of April 2017, WIRE performed their 40th anniversary show during Day 3 of DRILL Festival LA.
Noveller (Sarah Lipstate), who opened for WIRE during their 2017 East Coast tour dates, joined the LA stage on that night in the Pink Flag Guitar Orchestra, and was also one of DRILL:LA’s fine lineup of artists.
This video was edited by Eric Scott (Day For Night) from crowdsourced YouTube footage shot on Wire’s 40th Anniversary. Members from the audience recorded the performance from various angles with their phones, during the 2nd encore around midnight.
Many thanks to videographers Adrienne Scott, BRMC Down Here, Dean Westerfield, Mariex Xme, OccupyJordan, Ron Borolla, Tim Wilson and Von Kraemer DeWitt for their excellent coverage and dedication – holding an iPhone 6 over one’s head for 11 minutes verges on a yoga pose for the some.

Wire “High” Music Video – from pf22 ‘Wire’ (1:58)
Music promo for WIRE High from their 14th album release “Wire”, out April 2015 on Pink Flag. Video created by Eric Scott (Day For Night).
“…It all began (rather unassumingly) as #iPhone6 concert footage which I shot at the Echoplex L.A. show last May, having no plans in mind, and quickly turned into this. I found myself playing in After Effects and before I knew it, hours had passed and I was proceeding with confidence that there was an idea to explore, some visual contrasts to do with altitude and time.
“’High’ was immediately a standout track for me, from a tremendous 14th album (the self-titled ‘WIRE’). The song is buoyant with these soaring emotional highpoints in the poetic text, which is as beautifully cryptic as with so many of Graham Lewis’s lyrics. Meanwhile, the overall structure (A-B-A-B-C) contains some brilliant nuances, from the minor-to-major shifts which signals the chorus. Wire’s art-rock perspective on this results in something that is musically very satisfying, even in the less-likeliness of a ‘pop’ event… it is all-the-while SO subtle in so many more ways than one. A real gem of a song, it needed to become a single!”
