Wire was one of the more interesting bands to emerge out of the original British punk era. They never sold a lot of records but with their first three albums, they showed how the tenets of punk could be expanded in all sorts of new directions. The third of those albums was called 154 which came out in September 1979. One song was cryptically named “”Map Ref. 41°N 93°W.” What the hell did that mean? Why write a song about a spot in southern Iowa? That’s the kind of thing that made Wire so weird and wonderful.
