Short intro

Chairs Missing is the second studio album by English rock band Wire. It was released in August 1978. The album peaked at number 48 in the UK Albums Chart. Although it features some of the minimalist punk rock of the band's debut Pink Flag, it features more developed song structure taking some cues from 1970s prog-rock, psychedelia, and art rock, keyboard and synthesizer elements brought in by producer Mike Thorne, and a broader palette of emotional and intellectual subject matter.

The arty darkness of Chairs Missing, combined with the often icy-sounding synthguitar arrangements, helps make the record a crucial landmark in the evolution of punk into post-punk and goth, as well as a testament to Wire's rapid development and inventiveness.

Chairs Missing',the follow up to Wire's adrenalin rush of a debut album 'Pink Flag' is a challenging yet rewarding listen. Themes of darkness and despondency are abundant throughout and.

Yep, that's a bootleg all right. "modern" paper sleeve, no barcodes and etchings and some amateurish cover image upscaling tells it all... it's a counterfeit. I don't know where this originated from and why someone would bootleg such a niche album back in the days but.. it's quite a nice sounding one. A little bit muddier than the official one, but quite clean and quiet!
My used copy of this version did not come with a printed inner sleeve. Does anybody know if there should be a printed inner sleeve with this version?
