Zum Album

Drums And Wires ist das dritte Album der britischen Band XTC. Arbeitstitel des Albums waren Boom Da Da Boom und Third Story. Es wurde im Studio The Town House in London im Juni und Juli 1979 aufgenommen. Auch hier war wieder Nick Lowe als neuer Produzent vorgesehen, stattdessen ersetzte Steve Lillywhite den vorherigen Produzenten John Leckie. Auch die Bandbesetzung hatte sich geändert, da nun David Gregory statt Barry Andrews am Keyboard stand. Die Single Making Plans For Nigel war der erste Top 20-Hit der Band, außerdem verschaffte ihnen der Song Helicopter mehr Bekanntheit in den USA.
