"The Only U2 Interview You'll Ever Have To Read"
 
From u2.com

17.12.2005
Observing U2

It's being billed as 'the only U2 interview you'll ever have to read'. It's in tomorrows edition of The Observer newspaper in the UK and it's conducted by legendary pop culture critic Paul Morley - who was writing about U2 when they were just starting out.

The Observer Music Magazine describes U2's performance at Twickenham in London this summer as the No.1 'Gig of the Year' - closely followed by The Stooges, Gorillaz, Cream, Patti Smith and Robbie Williams.

We'll bring you some extracts from the interview once it hit the streets tomorrow - but if you're in the UK, could be one to snap up.

Borders and another local book store in my area carry the Sunday Observer but the only concern I have is whether this section will be in the international edition.

I'll check it out tomorrow.

Thanks for the info! :applaud:

Thanks Diane
I love this 1980's review :bono: "Like Mork the unpredictable alien he's irrepressible, irritating and accidentally, incidentally and purposefully incisive." :yes: :lol:

'The singer could grow up to be a nuisance ...'

Paul Morley's 1980 review of U2


U2, Soul Boys Moonlight, Club NME, 1980


Two newcomers playing either side of the Xmas go-slow. Plenty of gaps in the gathering for the U2 show, but of the two they're the ones with obvious commercial potential. U2 are sharp and subtle and cynical, slyly seductive in an uncompromising way like The Pretenders or The Au Pair. A pop that isn't pap and pad, a safe cushion of clichés and convenience, but angles, urgency, deflections. U2 are style plus spontaneity, an uncouth grace, an agile synthesis of abusive and abrasive ways to use up all that evil and inviting '60s- '70s tradition. Subversive pop can be so stimulating, slapping and stinging when you least expect it, beautifully bittersweet. Of course, U2 are still young and free of bizzy contradictions, so I can have my fun with no guilt. And if the wild wit and serious rave of U2 won't turn you on, they look so cute. Pretty drummer, odd bassist, tense guitarist, and to deliver their jittery balance of amiability and aggression a lead singer who could well grow to be something of a nuisance when U2 are TOTP regulars but right now adds tingles to the greedy Bobsie presence. Like Mork the unpredictable alien he's irrepressible, irritating and accidentally, incidentally and purposefully incisive. A multitude of targets are shot at, a few are bound to be hit.

U2 are from Dublin, showband roots not a total secret. A group made for loving and leaving, for burning into view and then burning up. When a group's in view it's so hard for them to envisage being a nonentity again. You have to sigh. But for now - U2, here they are."
