agreed. it's a shame so many great demos from the pre-boy/boy era never got released, not until the itunes box set anyway. they should've at least been used as b-sides or stopgap singles.

I'm really surprised nothing got used during the October era, given how desperate they were!

i'm still pissed that we never got a glimpse of what lyrics bono had written that were in the suitcase that got "stolen" - i figured for sure some scans would be included in the remastered stuff.
