Shuttlecock IX: Romi and Miss Sil's Line Rules Disunion

Or should it be Shuttlecock VIV?

I feel like some space time continuum has been broken...

Formed and broken over and over in tandem through the twists and turns of space and time.

I see what you did there. With the thread title.


Volcano and Whoredinary Love get played again.

Why is this band so either/or? Why is it so hard to mix things up?

What an awful setlist. First time this tour I've been bored covering a show.

That isn't meant to be a commentary on much of anything really, lest somebody jump all over it. I obviously have quite a different perspective on the tour to many people by virtue of running U2gigs. To be frank I've thought fairly poorly of the tour so far - and kept a lot of opinions to myself because who cares and I crap on too much as it is - but there was always at least something in the previous shows. At times I got really, genuinely excited. This one? Nope. If U2 came to Melbourne and I couldn't go for whatever reason and they played that set, I wouldn't care I missed it.

Bono should be the next Doctor. Edge should be his companion.

Both Denver sets were more boring than LA3 and I didn't think that was possible.

And 23 songs BOTH nights in a city? Come on.

Either Bono's voice is FUCKED and we don't know it, or they are just plain lazy. No support act and 23 songs sets? pfft

So, my fellow Australians, when are we going to piss off the rest of B&C by listening to another U2 album? I'm not doing anything for the rest of this evening.

I'll take Denver 1 over LA 3. Desire and Angel of Harlem are better songs than Elevation and Stuck in a Moment.

Oh, and fun fact. For a regular U2 concertgoer in Denver, if you exclude the new material, the only two songs played over the last two nights that you wouldn't have heard on at least one of the last three tours are Desire and Angel of Harlem. That's how static U2's choices of warhorses are. If you exclude the Elevation Tour and take just the last decade, the only additional song that would be new to you is Out Of Control.

I'm free! I probably just need a 5 minute warning to get my Mac charger and cuppa something.

I liked Liam's idea of doing a whole era. If we use the deluxe edition of Boy and just tinker with the order of the 2nd disc, we can cover everything that was released plus the bonus tracks:

U2:3 with early versions of OOC and SFB
Another Day/Twilight demo
11 O'clock Tick Tock/Touch
Boy album (with Fire riff at the end)
Things to Make and Do
Speed of Life
Cartoon World
Saturday Night
(and if we want, the alt I Will Follow and live Boy/Girl)

That would be some sweet listening.

Or we could go for something we expect to be funnier.

I can put together a zip file or something, if people want. I think if we were doing eras, it'd be better to just do the singles, because doing the albums would make it a much longer experience, and being concise is always nice.

But if people wanna do a big thing, I could be up for that too.

I'm also down for NLOTH, Boy, whatever.

Well, since the other night we enjoyed doing one album and didn't seem to think it was quite enough in the end, that's why I thought doing the b-sides with the album would be best. Doing it in the order of pre-album singles/album/b-sides/miscellaneous leftovers struck me as a good order.

Yeah, I guess that's a fair point; if wanting more means listening to RAH again I'll gladly throw an album in the middle.

I have the deluxe copy of Boy in iTunes, but I'd just download U2:3 cause I've never listened to that.

But happy to do any album/whatever.
