We've passed 700 posts in 3 hours, with only a few of us here. Imagine if we got a good bunch of us and really tried to kick through a thread as fast as possible.

I like 11OTT.

U2 could have been footnote in 80s music history, like the Psychedelic Furs, who I love, but noone remembers much anymore, except for fucking Pretty in Pink which was fantastic till Molly Ringwald got near it (I also love Molly Ringwald by the way)

The demo version I've heard isn't too great, though.
Yeah, though it's not nearly as dodgy as some of the other early demos!

11OTT was so much better live, though. On the UABRS video, it rocks so awesomely hard.

Honestly, I must admit that I'm not sure I'd mind all too much if U2 were just a footnote. They'd have been a fucking good footnote, rather than the overblown chapter they are now.
