If you ever wanted to see Wire playing live, like actually AND for reals LIVE in the '70s, THIS IS IT!!! Really, I think this is the ONLY video footage of them playing (indeed they're plugged in) from their initial run. I've heard a handful of live recordings from the '70s, but to see 'em, man, they fucking kill.

The performance was a late night show on British Forces Broadcasting Services in Germany called On The Box; it originally aired Valentine’s Day, 1979.
