Welcome to The Wire's new website

Welcome to the brand new Wire website. We've been working on it for a while and hope that it improves on our previous site, with a more dynamic landing page and a structure that allows visitors to see everything that's happening in the wide world of The Wire, from the contents of the current issue, to daily news updates and events listings, plus tracks and radio shows to stream, videos, and archive articles from the early 1980s to now.

The site is a work in progress, and things will continue to change over the next few weeks. If you do find anything that's missing, broken or just have questions or suggestions as to what you'd like to see here, please email and and we'll try and help.

The site was built by Dorian Fraser Moore of The Useful Arts Organisation from a design by The Wire's art director, Ben Weaver.
