So we all got ensnared in Liam's plot, rather than Cobbler's.

Well then.

And didn't Einsturzende Neubauten actually get kicked off ZooTV after that one support gig because U2 didn't approve of their stage antics? Or am I thinking of somebody else? I recall they definitely gave somebody the boot.

It had something to do with throwing an iron bar into the booing audience.

I'd give them a medal and not the boot.

Yeah, to me they presented a good case to be signed for the whole rest of the tour.

It would have been nice if the CI had somehow been spun into a Law and Order joke, but I'll live.

I was going to do some kind of Knife Crime/Criminal Intent thing but couldn't get it to work with the Roman numeral, so fuck it.

Continue, Interference.

That sounds like something Mount Temple would write.

That was my plan, but we hit the post count while I was driving some old lady to the ER (I still don't understand why she wanted to go, she had no medical complaint at all) so I missed my opportunity.

That's probably something I don't know how to see/can't see on my phone. I almost never visit this place from an actual computer anymore.

I was listening to No Line the other day and realized that Unknown Caller is my probably my least favorite U2 song. It seems to be aiming for some kind of profundity, but the lyrics are so daft and the pacing of the song so languid that the listener becomes numb to any kind of statement that might be buried underneath all of the nonsense. Edge's guitar work is surprisingly flaccid, especially in the solo, and that tepid ambient lead-in makes no sense in light of the robotic chorus. I know people point to Stand Up Comedy as the nadir of that album, but at least it's done in under four minutes; Unknown Caller plods on for six. The song is just a complete and utter disaster from my view.

Huh, I enjoy it well enough outside of the unbelievably clunky chorus. I find the intro very disarming and pretty, a great transition from Moment of Surrender as well.

Not going to bother defending the lyrics; they're horrendously executed.

It's like a 6/10 song, not something I would go out of my way to praise, but far from U2's worst work.
