The Daily Choice: Bare Wires – Ready To Go


Another “soft-punk” bonanza from the Bay Area’s Bare Wires.  Soft-punk is more and more sounding like David Lee Roth squished together with the dwindling garage rock movement and though in most scenarios I’d turn tale and run at the very mention of the combination, this I like.

“Ready To Go” is the b-side to the “Don’t Ever Change” 7″ from long ago. Pick it up here.

The Daily Choice: Bare Wires – Don’t Ever Change


I’m writing about Bay Area musicians, all month long. That’s it, get use to it.

Bare Wires are making quite a name for themselves right now, what with a free show with The Black Lips and Thee Oh Sees this last weekend and a new single dropping on Robot Elephant Records and a new LP. I’m quite entranced by their sort of stoned Ramones’ sound.

It makes me want to smoke a joint, pop the collar on my leather jacket and cause a ruckus.
