No, Treasure is. Pete The Chop is quite different. I'm surprised it doesn't appear on either Boy or War. We only know Pete The Chop from live bootlegs, but a studio version does exist in the vaults, as the band held it in reserve in case their career nosedived and they needed an emergency single. By War, they were confident enough that they didn't need it, so they reinvented it as Treasure.

Oh blah, after I posted it I thought you would have meant that but couldn't be arsed editing.

I suppose we'll hold out for some U2 Vaults release or some rubbish like that.

Maybe the "extended vocal mix" of NYD will actually be worth it?

I love that smiley for its unintentional sarcasm.

I have to say your avatar has grown on me. I think you should keep it.

I was planning on keeping it at least for the summer, you didn't really have a choice in the matter.

Though I've got to admit, I feel really bad shitting on the remasters. I don't want a reputation of disliking everything U2 does or being negative just for the sake of being negative. That's not the case at all, and I was very excited when news of the remasters first broke - indeed, I'm still very keen to hear them. I guess it's just that the remasters could potentially have been much, much better, and knowing that makes the actual reality a bit disappointing.

An Alpaca. It's kinda funny, the first time I came on here after it'd been changed, I say hi and earlier on the page MIa is talking about alpacas!

I hear you.

And even though it's one of countless other remixes which sucks, "extended vocals" sounds like something maybe we haven't heard?

Varitek, I don't know if the CD exchange is going to happen because the interest has disappeared but for a few people so can I send you a playlist of The Dresden Dolls? You seemed interested in them when I mentioned them.

Oh, it is an alpaca? The face seems so, but the hair made it look more like some strangely realistic football mascot.

There are quite a few alpaca farmers back where I'm from.

Yeah that kind of thing, if you don't do it right away, interest dies I guess.

Yeah, I'm wondering if by "extended vocals" it means new lyrics, Bono singing lines we already know a few more times, or some guy just looping what we already know over and over again. My bet's on the second option. "Iiiiiii will beee with yooouuuu aaagaaaaaiiiin" x20 this time around!
