April 13th 1978

From Hotpress:

They were fun to dance to, but the School Kids have more than a few wrinkles to iron out before they'll leave a lasting impression.

On the other hand, U-2 have only one big problem, conquering the ‘fast-is-good' fallacy that plagues them now. Already possessed of a fine rhythm section, a tangible identity, and a promising vocalist U-2 managed to negate the impact of their originals simply by playing too fast. What could well have been very clever songs sounded unintelligible and indistinguishable.

A glimmer of U-2's direction may be gleaned from the inclusion of Wire's "Mannequin" in their set, and if U2 can slow down long enough to be heard, they could step to the fore of the Dublin music scene.

WOW-that's just amazing to read.

I guess they did 'step to the fore', eh?

hehe. Just maybe. But I doubt they'll ever be more than a bar band around Dublin.

I saw this thread and thought, "What's my birthday doing up there?" (That is my actual b-day, year and all!)

Then I read the actual thread...lol Cool...it's fun to read old stuff like that.
