Wire's Colin Newman Readies New Githead Full-Length
Wire front-man Colin Newman has enjoyed a return to the spotlight since his highly influential post-punk band have reunited. Now, however, the British guitarist seems more focused on his latest side-project, Githead. The band have actually released two albums and an EP in recent years, and have readied their third full-length.

Titled Landing, the album will be out on November 10 on the group's own Swim label. According to a press release, the album boasts "minimalist guitar patterns, [the band's] supremely catchy melodic sense... propulsive bass rumble [and a] solid, steady drive," calling the album "Githead's most accomplished recording to date."

However, the same press release also says the band's career has "boasted more 5-star reviews than most bands have had hot dinners," so it should be taken with a grain of salt.

Information on the record, including all of its lyrics, can be viewed here.
