Chairs Missing is the second studio album by English rock band Wire. It was released in August 1978. The album peaked at number 48 in the UK Albums Chart.
Wire immediately left the crunch of Pink Flag behind on Chairs Missing, 1978's great leap into even artier weirdness and Brian Eno-inspired ambient experiments. The funny thing is that, though a fairly major departure for the band, the album cloaks its curveball up front, beginning as Pink Flag did: With bassist Graham Lewis's nakedly produced pulse being attacked by guitars. That denouement foreshadows one of the album's most arresting tracks, the starkly minimal sculpture "Heartbeat", an openly beautiful piece of experimentation that morphs into a pop song without a chorus. The album as a whole is less purposefully fragmented than its predecessor, the songs more conventionally structured even as they veer in unexpected directions.

Someone is making a joke. I counted the chairs several times and I'm sure none was missing! But i recall a british band, on its second album, that was moving the chairs while playing with its used, punk knives. 96. This album is its own masterpiece, even though it often gets overlooked by 154 or Pink Flag.
There are some records that changed my life forever, and Chairs Missing is one of them. I first heard this record when it came to this country as a . import over thirty years ago, and it is still as fantastic to me now as it was then. It certainly pointed me in a different direction and showed me the possibilities of what a band could be and do. From the moment I heard it, I was off down a new road, and I've never looked back. Sadly underrated, do yourself a favor and get this incredible album by an amazing band that was truly decades ahead of its time
