The only Wire records they had were either used or imported from England (for $15.99). So I guess my out-of-print theory had some truth to it, although I have no idea why such an important and influential band would only be availible as an import. While I was browsing they - what a strange coincidence - played a Wire song on the speakers - Lowdown, if I remember correctly - not my favorite song off the record, but it's nice someone's playing their music.
For the record, I just got:
- Chairs Missing by Wire
- Starlite Walker by the Silver Jews
