The Wire with Laetitia Sadier on Blondie and epiphanies
The Wire investigates bass in issue # 341. It also includes a free CD in The Wire Tapper series. The CD has 20 tracks by the likes of Matthew Shaw, Lata and Lushlife.
There are album reviews for Micachu And The Shapes, Swans, Beak >, Mi Ami and Peaking Lights.
Laetitia Sadier from Stereolab wrote a brilliant column for this issue about her love for music, how it started and what her first cell-changing experience was with music - hearing Blondie's Heart of Glass as a teenager in New York. Sadier's humor, wit, knowledge and passion make for a great read. She uses a lot of exclamation marks like in her song titles. Her new album Silencio is released this month by Drag City.
