Concerts where no recording is available. We have setlists for every single show from the start of Conspiracy Of Hope onwards. We have almost everything from the UF Tour, the vast majority of War, but then things get a little sketchy with October, and pre-Boy, we're lucky to have what we've got. Too many early sets are incomplete, sourced from newspaper reviews and such that only mention a few songs.

Getting snippets and other information, obviously, is a harder matter.

Ick, yeah, that's always irritating.

Though it seems nothing could stop FYM becoming the dog's breakfast it is today. Just go to the front page and you see what I mean! The vast majority of threads are either over-eager far left hysteria from Harry Vest, even more over-eager far right hysteria from the iron horse, or Mrs Springsteen posting news articles with no thoughts of her own.

Holy shit, we're not slackers, are we?

Got a date for that Pop Survivor? I'd like to work out how many posts on average we make per day.

I just had a 25 minute telephone conversation with my girlfriend. She thinks she's done something to make me sad. Or that I've done something worthy of being sad about. Neither, of course, is the case. I don't know what the fuck is wrong with me.

so, the father of the family i'm just about to agree with for the au pair thing is a u2 fan, not a crazy like us, but was at some UK shows in the boy and october era, one of which was a manchester boy show i'm pretty sure you don't have the setlist for, but he doesn't remember of course. he did say he'd had friends who'd recorded some shows back in the day, so if i do get the job and end up there, i'll press him on that some time and see if i can get ahold of these bootleggers...maybe they're released, but maybe not!
