Proving himself to be the most music nerd friendly late night host ever, Jimmy Fallon hosted Wire in what has to be their first ever American late night appearance after 34 years as a band. Though the group is far from their artsier performance art antics of the early postpunk days, it's still nice to see the boys aging gracefully. They were there to promote their new album Red Barked Tree, but while there they also rang out a rendition of their classic song "Map Ref 41N 93W", perhaps the best cut from their best album 154.
