u2s first few albums are really good
when they originally came out. do re-issues ever really chart? surely they are strictly fan only affairs?
that these re-issues were hyped like mad in Ireland, which pisses me off no end cos the media would rather fawn over U2 than cover new, exciting bands like fight like apes, ham sandwich, or the chalets RIP.
sorry. irish music sucks at the moment.
there are some brilliant bands in ireland now, check out And so i watch you from afar, fighting with wire, oppenheimer, mojo fury,general fiasco, in case of fire, tracer amc and lotion for starters
they're fucking A
and they pretty much all suck ass.
that came with a teatowel or a blazer badge and tie combination pack or something.
see the whole episode...it's a classic
witty. well done
then posts equally mundane threads an a 'cool to hate' figure.
it's over. if it was so mundane why are you still talking about it
and hypocasy makes me want to tie people down and drip concentrated sulphuric acid on their forehead
any hypocrisy in anything i've said.
The guy makes millions and he could just sit around between tours and albums counting his cash, like, say, The Stones. The fact that he puts himself in the line of ridicule relates to that fact that he bothers to put his neck on the line for things he believes in. 99.9% of artists who are in a position to be able to do things that you and I can't, completely fail to abuse their position.
So I am officially sticking up for Bono.
I think he is really cool. Pomp can really be quite entertaining if you give it a chance.
your casual U2 fan probably isn't going to be interested in their post-punky beginnings, and so will go straight for the mega albums (or Greatest Hits). And the people who are interested already have them
this was going to be news of a collaboration between Take That and U2. Oh the disappointment!
but Unforgettable Fire is a monument, a behemoth, an obelsik, a fuckin ripper of an album.
War is top notch too...
of any bands that I like that I would get on with the frontman/woman. It would be interesting to start a new thread about whether there is a correlation between twattyness and great music. In fact, I'm going to do that right now, hold on....
this was an article about Take That. I am disappointed.
An Exteacher in North Wales got sent down for being a Peado. He looked like Bono!
these albums are great.
since when have the charts had anything to do with good music?
