They're pretty much post-post punk at this point.

If there's any justice, historians will write about Wire's 1977 debut, "Pink Flag," as one of truly great punk rock masterpieces to come out that year. But unlike some bands that came out of that fertile era for British music, Wire had the legs to keep going and put out two more superb albums after that first one. After a few stops and starts in the 80s and 90s, Wire has reformed and put out four really well-received albums in the last ten years, and always put on a great show.
