It says much about the credibility of their musicianship and song-writing that in their relatively short time as a gigging band the Wire Daisies have been invited to perform as opening artists for such a wide range of musicians and performers as Robbie Williams, Deep Purple and Seal.
Wire Daisies are Treana Morris vocals and guitars, Alden Evans guitars, Ol Beach keyboards and Steve Jackson drums. The band was formed in 2002 when Ol Beach joined Treana, Alden and Steve in Cornwall, having previously spent some time in London with Treana writing and recording.
It was Roger Taylor from Queen who first discovered Treana Morris singing in his local pub in Cornwall. He took Treana and her band on tour with him and introduced her to Queen's manager Jim Beach. Anthony Cauchi from Outside Line in London and Jim Beach had just formed an online digital record label, Transistor Project, specifically to develop and promote emerging artists. Wire Daisies signed to Transistor Project and after a further period of writing, gigging and recording the band went into Sawmills Studio in Fowey to record their first album, Just Another Day, produced by John Cornfield (Oasis, Muse, Supergrass, Razorlight) in 2003. The band then signed a worldwide publishing deal with EMI Music Publishing.
Wire Daisies set about earning their live wings with festival performances including Rock am Ring, the Montreux Jazz and Womad festival where they played with Air, Jamie Cullum and Alicia Keys among others. Their 2004 debut album, Just Another Day went straight to No. 1 in the French and UK iTunes charts. The lead single "Make Everything Change" was Record of the Day and then Single of the Week on iTunes. This was followed by an invitation to perform alongside James Blunt at the Digital Music Awards. The band then went on to support Starsailor on their "On The Outside" European Tour.
With the album riding high in the iTunes charts the band continued to tour the UK extensively with a mix of headline performances and support slots for the likes of 13 Senses, Melanie C and Stephen Fretwell. The Wire Daisies kick started 2005 with the release of the stunningly beautiful Everyman, which Radio 2 added straight to their B playlist and the track subsequently entered the Top 20 airplay charts. The band signed a major deal with EMI Continental Europe and also EMI's UK label Angel, who saw the potential and organic growth the band had made and wanted to build on the current success and take it to a new level both in the UK and Internationally.
Early 2006 saw Wire Daisies perform 3 stadium support slots with their EMI label mate Robbie Williams as he kicked off his world tour in South Africa. These shows marked a return for Treana to the country where she performed with Queen, Anastacia, Beyonce, Eurythmics and Bono at the Nelson Mandela 46664 concert at Greenpoint Stadium in Nov 2003.
Later in 2006 the Wire Daisies went back into the studio and recorded their second album with John Cornfield at their own studio in Cornwall, The Barn, Redruth. With a rockier vein, the second album, eponymously entitled Wire Daisies, highlights the eclectic mix of the band's writing. The album moves from out-and-out rock tracks such as "Wake Up" and "Leaves are Brown" to full-bloodied Treana Morris' ballads, such as "Never let me Hurt You", "Silver Top" and "So Soon".
The second Wire Daisies album "Wire Daisies" was release by Angel Records on the joint Transistor Project / idRecords imprint, during the first week of May 2007. Now the band gears up for their first North American release via a joint venture with U.S. label Merovingian Music and the bands parent label, Transistor Project which will be distributed by Caroline / EMI Distribution. The release will include tracks from both previous UK release as well as two new tracks, “Mary Jane” and the club hit, “Gay Boy”.

Footage of the BLU-82B "daisy cutter" bomb in 1970. Designed to create an instant clearing in the jungles of Vietnam, it has also been used an anti-personnel weapon because of its very large lethal radius (280m).
The BLU-82 uses conventional explosive incorporating both agent and oxidizer. In contrast, fuel-air explosives (FAE) consist only of an agent and a dispersing mechanism, and take their oxidizers from the oxygen in the air. The minimum altitude for release due to blast effects of the weapon is 1,800 m above ground level. The warhead contains 5,700 kg of low-cost GSX slurry (ammonium nitrate, aluminium powder and polystyrene) and is detonated just above ground level by a 965 mm fuse extender, optimized for destruction at ground level without digging a crater. The weapon produces an overpressure of 1000 psi near ground zero.
Unlike a lot of persons think about, daisies are not flowers(strictly speaking) but a group of flowers because they're composed of inflorescences.
