From memory....which explains the mistake. I didn't have the single but a recording on cassette.

I don't think so. It's a heavily processed sample, possibly by Mike Thorne or the band, like the vacuum cleaners on the 154 EP. Wire did use a lot of samples. Both the Wire intro and God's chorus have obvious phasing, tuned samples and signal processing.

What synth would create that sound from scratch in 1979? It isn't FM synthesis or analogue. It may be an Early Fairlight from 1979?


Go ahead Wire / 1979
