I "notice" the playing of Larry and Adam, but for me it's all about guitar and vocals. Difficult to put into words.
    But I was just listening to that Edge Sound thing that Sergio shared the other day, where the sound of Edge's guitar is filtered out of the live recordings. All you hear is Larry's drumming and Adam's bass, with a bit of Bono's vocals. But the main thing is the rhythm section. And I found myself listening in awe, it was like I never really listened to what those two contribute to the band's sound. It is big, it is a driving force. Absolutely impressive. I had a huge "wow" moment that actually lasted for more than two hours while I listened to that stuff.

    Larry Adam

    So true...So many of their songs have an interesting drum riff or have a bassline that is a melody or makes the song swing. A complete band with no member not doing their fair share.
  2. I reckon I found Paul Giamatti, in one of the U2360 fan cams, are there any others?
  3. nice recording studio, ages and hair ago, well Eno was already at a good point

  4. Eno and Edge then started a fierce battle to see who could lose more hair in the least time!
  5. A random little nugget from the official youtube page;

  6. A recent @U2 article said LNOE is the band's most sci-fi/post-apocalyptic song...

    I think that surely that title belongs to the delightfully weird Life On a Distant Planet.

    That will be difficult till the 7 July !
  10. Does anyone know the single version/12" version/whatever of Discothèque? Completist that I am, I'm interested in it as I don't think I've heard it before. I think it's slightly shorter (about 5:10 or something?) - does anyone know what's different about it compared to the album version?

    Single version has a synth/electronic intro and it's far better than the album version, thanks to that intro.
