There's the rub, and might be a multi-pronged key to this discussion.
Wire is more of a socially interested mag than an arts-interested one,
(and getting more and more so it seems). It is good press and publicity
  as its readership is large and diverse, and while it seems to be a
one-of-a-kind (at least in English and available in my speciality shop
nearby) it really boils down to being about attitude and monolgue rather
than artistic discourse. Try doing a word search for electroacoustique
in Circuit. It may be a better example.
