Always loved the instrumental interlude that starts at around one and a half minutes in.

If you're here solely for the indiepop, and don't like anything harsh, discordant or screechy, this isn't the one for you.

A song that ticks all my boxes.

I have the same sort of girlcrush on Annie Hardy that I had on Katie Jane Garside 20 years ago.

As a 21-year-old indiepop grrrl, I also remember simultaneously laughing ironically at the lyrics, and secretly identifying with them. Though I'd never have admitted the latter.

This one, their biggest hit, was in super heavy rotation on Dublin radio back in 2009 but somehow I never got tired of it. It's a great catchy tune, slightly offbeat, with some really clever wordplay - what's not to like?
From their fourth album, Fantasies.

This was the third single from their self-titled debut album, from 1982. It's quite a cheery video for such a cynical song, but then Terry Hall always did do irony well.

It's from their second album, Express, from 1986, which I actually rather like.

This is from a 2010 EP, Zebracore Revisited (told you).

They're named for a Wire song, but it's definitely the pop more than the post-punk side of Wire they draw from. Which is fine by me.
