This line by Wire in his February 2018 interview in The Quietus really struck me. " The only time we’ve ever reacted against ourselves in terms of popularity was Know Your Enemy, that was a wilfully destructive album.” Is Wire referring to the fuss made over the bands visit to Cuba and the band taking yet another change in direction and sound after the success of TTMT? Or is was there more happening in the studio than we perhaps know about? For all of the band's opinion on KYE, it's still a great album. So fresh and raw. I still think it captured the band at their very very best. In sound and song writing. I'm always wondering just what has Wire horded away over the years.
