Three of Newman's classic solo albums will be remastered and reissued

Wire's Colin Newman has announced plans to reissue three of his classic solo albums, A-Z, Provisionally Entitled The Singing Fish and Not To. Above, you can check out a track that will feature on one of those reissues, 'Order For Order (Riverside Demo)'.

The three albums were originally released between 1980 and 1982. All three albums have been remastered for their reissue. The albums will be released in a vinyl collection as well as a separate CD collection, which will take in an extra CD of extra tracks, B-sides and demos, such as the one above - many of which have never been heard before. You can pre-order the records, which are out on October 28, here.
