Post-Punk Legends Wire Perform 'Red Barked Trees' on Fallon


British post-punk legends Wire made their first appearance on American television in nearly a quarter century last night on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. The band played the title track to their 12th LP Red Barked Tree, which came out in January. The group has broken up three times since their formation in 1976, but have stuck together since a reunion tour in 2006 to celebrate their 30th anniversary. Original guitarist Bruce Gilbert, however, left the group a few years ago. Wire is touring America all this month, leading up their performance at Coachella on April 16th.
