Colin Newman

    Colin Newman is the singer and guitarist of one of the most legendary punk bands ever - Wire. And today, he swears by his trusty Airline MAP STD - which he customised with a piezo pickup!


     We are proud to have Colin not just as an Eastwood Artist - but also a collaborator! Our new Airline MAP Colin Newman Signature takes its cue from Colin's customised MAP, and comes fitted with a piezo pickup.

    With Wire, Colin Newman pushed the boundaries of punk rock and albums such as classic debut 'Pink Flag' continue to inspire new generations of musicians. Rather than resting on their laurels, Wire remain a vital and current band, still making great music that sounds fresh today, as we talked about on our Colin Newman interview.
