Sunday Mirra #5, 1978

Mirra: Right. Uh, can you read music?
Graham: No, none of us can, if any of us has an idea, then we go 'di-dum-der-dir-dum etc'....till we can all play it, then we add bits on to it.

Right, so now we know...that's how Wire wrought that magical sound...... anyway, there's a nice 4 page encounter with the band in this fine issue of Sunday Mirra. Elsewhere there's Dose, Moped Mania, The Killjoys, Toots & The Maytals, 999 + 'Another Mirra Exclusive' with un-aired excerpts from Stuart Henry's, Sex Pistols interview.
