That's hilarious. I'm guessing those must be sourced from the 18 November 1989, Sydney footage used for the Lovetown documentary?





Yep, I think so... I've never seen the doco, but there are bits through the start of Hawkmoon about King's Cross in Sydney, dolphins leaping and a wedge-tailed eagle soaring... etc..

I honestly have no idea who she is, except that she appeared onstage a couple of times with U2 in the late eighties. She did Sweet Jane with the band in Paris on 15 June 1987.

Going to pretend you didn't read this post too?
the song is sorta ABOUT! Streets no wonder it feels so similar.

It's just that COBL & Streets are two of my favorites, and they feel similar, but Bono killed Streets for me on this past tour. I was happier knowing but not admitting knowing you know? I don't want the same thing to happen with COBL so I've been trying to NOT think about what it could mean.

though that explanation's not so bad as it could've beenn.

That's the doco alright. Great performance of Hawkmoon; in fact all the doco footage is really good and taken from the Bomb Scare gig.

What the..
I've found a clipping from the paper from LT days:

U2 star falls for computer whiz

Adam Clayton, the U2 star, has fallen for an Australian computer programmer - known only as Mary. A report in the Daily Mirror newspaper said Clayton had met Mary, 25, in Sydney during the band's recent world tour and now the two were "inseparable". An unnamed "friend" of Clayton reportedly said "Mary is lovely. THey spent Christmas together in Ireland. Everyone is really happy for them".

You don't know how happy I am I kept this...

Playing tennis? In trackie daks??

Rage did this three-hour spree of all U2 clips when ATYCLB was released... I talked the 6'6 Ukrainian guy into giving up the communal TV in the student residence where I lived so I could tape it
(Well, I just asked timidly and he quite happily went to use the other TV... lovely bloke, smoked a lotta weed though.)

You must work some of the setlist out of him for me ... and the greater good of the U2 fan community too.

Lead singer of Lone Justice, US band who supported U2 a lot around the late 80s. She moved to Ireland and started a solo career.
