The Spindle: Wire “Kidney Bingos” b/w “Pieta”

In 1988, legendary post-punk band Wire went pop – at least according to their critics. But according to Marc and John, their 7-inch “Kidney Bingos” b/w “Pieta” was a natural progression, not to mention just a great pair of songs! Dig into the catchy but heady sound of ’80s Wire on the latest episode of the Spindle. 

About The Spindle: The 7-inch record isn’t just a format—it’s an art form. On each episode of The Spindle podcast, music writer Marc Masters (Pitchfork, The Wire, Bandcamp) and music historian (and music maker) John Howard dive into a great 7-inch, dissecting its background, impact, and the reasons why it stands out as a small plastic piece of music history.
