https://pinkflag.greedbag.com/dept/~t-shirts-12/ As regular newsletter subscribers will know, we’ve been working behind the scenes to produce the ultimate pieces of 1970s Wire merchandising: classic album T-shirts. These are produced using a very new technology that enables full-colour images to be printed directly onto cotton T-shirts of any colour. The image is not ‘stuck on’ – it feels like any other printed T-shirt and is also completely washable. The catch is because this is a new technology, the cost to make them is hugely more than regular T-shirts, and we can’t currently retail them at less than £29.99.

Nine Sevens - Release date: 21 April, 2018 (Record Store Day) Housed in a sturdy box with a beautiful cover concept by Bruce Gilbert, NINE SEVENS is a unique set of nine 7-inch records that were recorded between 1977 and 1980. This strictly limited edition is a Record Store Day exclusive. The box-set includes the six ground-breaking Wire singles that were originally released on the Harvest label, one released on Rough Trade, and one single recorded in 1980 that was never released on 7- inch. The set also includes the rare EP given away with the first pressings of 154. Everything is freshly remastered from the original archive analogue sources, and comes packaged in the original picture sleeve designs. The singles will be individually released digitally after Record Store Day but will not be compiled on a singles or greatest hits album Due to the fact that this is a Record Store Day exclusive we can only offer this for Mail Order if we have stocks left at the end of the Record store Day period. So if you want to be sure to get your copy there's a guide to participating shops near you on the Record Store Day website.
