LISTEN: Bad Breeding Cover Wire

Punk band cover Two People In A Room as B-side for new single

Stevenage noisemongers Bad Breeding have released a cover of Wire’s ‘Two People In A Room’, from the celebrated post-punks’ 1979 album 154. The cover will back up the band’s new single ‘Chains’, released on November 24 as a limited edition 7" vinyl (only 200 copies) and as a free download from SoundCloud.

The band will be selling the physical single via eBay and the Chinese selling platform Alibaba, with the band explaining that this decision was prompted by a desire to "go beyond the limited distribution frameworks made available for smaller releases". The release comes off the back of a UK tour supporting Eagulls, and will come just before a London headline show at The Stillery on December 4. For more information visit the band’s website here and give the bracing Wire cover a spin below, while you can catch them, fittingly, at the Wire-curated DRILL: BRIGHTON festival on December 5:
