Thanks. I've known how to play these songs for years, but only recently have I been starting to type out the tab and uploading it here. If you have any suggestions or requests, please feel free. I plan on adding some songs from 154 next, like "40 Versions" (which is the only Wire song in a different--drop-D--tuning), "The 15th," "Blessed State," "On Returning," and "Map Ref..." There's also a bunch more from Pink Flag and Chairs Missing that I'd like to put up as well. There's also some amazing tunes from their demos/rareities CD Behind the Curtain, as well as song non-album singles and the Peel Sessions, i.e. "Culture Vultures," "Stablemate," and "Our Swimmer." I also plan on adding some of the bass lines as well. It's a lot of work, so it'll be piecemeal.
