Boomtown Rats

are U2 fans Rats fans?

I never had any idea they were this good. Geldof had game & Gerry Cott is a mad guitar player. Really good rock & roll band all around.

To go from this:

BOOMTOWN RATS rat trap - YouTube

to this:

Boomtown Rats, The - Someones Looking At You (1979) - ENSIGN - YouTube

reeled me in like a fish. cheers.

Someone's Looking at You is a great song. I got to see them three times back in the day. X opened for them the first time. They were all good shows.

I'm jealous. All the live recordings I've heard are sound ace. I never knew Geldof was such a talent. I'd consumed "Mondays" and that was it.

I have a Best Of album of theirs. They're alright. I don't listen to them as often as I do other stuff, but I enjoy them.
