Performance notes: U2 appear on a late night Irish television show called TV Gaga and play two new songs. One, Womanfish, has never been performed elsewhere or released in any form; Bono claims it is about a mermaid the band met in America. The other is a very early version of Trip Through Your Wires introduced as "I Trip Through Your Wires", during which Bono sings "in this town" repeatedly. After these two songs, the band cover a Bob Dylan song to conclude their set. The set is ramshackle and the band are almost certainly drunk, particularly Bono.

OK, so, they're probably drunk. But give them points for enthusiasm. Watching the videos on YouTube, Bono, inebriated or not, is very active and having a lot of fun.
Not great, a bit old and muffled, but you can hear the band fine. Recording: Audience microphone - 5 stars
There is an audience.
Hardly U2's finest hour, but it isn't a bad performance. Womanfish has been maligned as U2's worst song... but I actually quite like it. It's obviously not quite 'done' but I think it's fun; I spent a few days walking to classes singing the 'loooooove is all you need' lines. The early version of 'Trip Through Your Wires' is nice to hear, although it isn't exactly wonderful. The Bob Dylan closer, with a fan with ridiculous hair onstage, is a nice way to tie it all up.
Overall, it's definitely no ZooTV Stockholm, but the odd songs are a great look into the U2 Machine at work and are worth adding to your library.

The song 'New Year's Day' is about the solidarity movement going on in Poland in the early 1980's. The government had promised changes and reforms, which would take effect on Jan. 1 of the following year, but the promises were empty.
