Gone convinced me that I needed to own everything U2 had released, and 11OTT and Bad convinced me that I needed everything full stop, bootlegs and all.
yeah, that's how i was. i've been a casual fan of U2 for as long as i can remember, thanks to my aunt. same goes with inxs. the four tapes i played most once i got older were ab, zooropa, kick, and x. (when i was younger i overplayed wham's make it big* and madonna's like a virgin, but whatevs.) circa 96 i bought U2's albums, though i didn't know passengers existed until the internet. then i bought that in 97, after pop.

so i guess you could say zoo station made me a hardcore fan, since it's the first track of ab. i dunno. i do know when i was a kid my two favourite tracks off ab were zoo station and the fly.

I've mostly my uncle to blame, the guy who owns 30 copies of the OTH single and saw every Kiwi Lovetown show and so forth. But my whole family love U2. Hell, everybody did. I was surprised when I came online and found there are people who dislike U2 with a raging passion, since they'd always been "that legendary band everybody likes" to me.

My U2 story began with the 'All I Want Is You' video, and me thinking to myself, "who the fuck just died???" After making it my aim in life to work the fucking clip out, I spent weeks watching it on Video Hits and one day I sid to myself "Self, this song is simply awesome. Love this band like they are your family. Join a cult, belong". I got the album on cassette tape and learned who they all were. The goodlooking one played drums, the weird looking navajo played guitar, the hairy one played bass and the short one was the singer.


Fine. I know none of you wanted to know all this, but you got it anyway.
