The First Letter is the ninth studio album and the last album released by Wire before their second extended hiatus. The band changed their name to Wir after drummer Robert Gotobed's departure, who quit the band because the musical direction increasingly relied on drum machines and loops. Other than an Erasure remix, the band would not reform until. Wir Live Mean Fiddler London, England July 12th, 1991. This was technically a 'Wire' concert but under the moniker of 'Wir'. They dropped the e in response to Robert Gotobed's departure prior to the release of 'The First Letter' album. Subsequently Robert returned to the band and they resumed their collective 'Wire' moniker.

With The First Letter Wire renamed itself WIR and continued its move toward more detailed soundscapes. Like the previous Manscape, the vocals mean considerably less than the musical textures - it's all about the sound, not the song. Some of the soundscapes are quite interesting, but much of the music fails to be compelling. Nevertheless, the concentration on sonic textures made it no surprise that Colin Newman began pursuing a career as a techno label owner after the album's release. Track Listing.
