"Womanfish" ???

I just saw this old post on the EYKIW archive and am totally clueless.

"06-23-2004 12:25 AM - Womanfish!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Our friends at U2 Star have this week's video up: it's Womanfish from an RTE broadcast in 1986. Some of the video is badly out of sinc with the sound, which makes for a couple of bizarre moments, but this is definitely worth checking out. (Note: Clayton looks uncannily like Roland Orzabal!) Very nice, high energy stuff."

First of all, what is this song, and if it's anything noteable, where can I find it, because it certainly looks interesting.

Any info would be appreciated.

Early 1986 U2 were on an Irish talkshow. They also played 2 new songs then. One of them was an early version of Trip Through Your Wires, the other was Womanfish. It is also the only time Womanfish has been performed.
As for the video, I don't know where you can find it. Sorry. I've never seen it myself either.

C ya!

thanks for that info. At least I know now what it is. Hopefully somebody else here will be able to track down the video for us to see.

Yeah the video is freaky, it's so out of sync and has a weird tint to it, and Bono appears to be quite

I'll see if I still have it.

I must say, this is one of the most rockin U2 tracks I've ever heard. Edge is balls to the walls in this one.

I thought they were looking for your also when I read the title of the thread!

Anyway, supposedly, the entire band was hammered when they did this show. Sounds like it anyway! The alternative lyrics to "This Town" (AKA Trip Through Your Wires) are also interesting.

I love Womanfish. I wish they could work on this song again and make it a b-side. Man that would be sweet.

I always assumed that was Bono...an early falsetto debut...
I also think the recording is slightly sped up...making it even faster and B's voice even higher.
Edge is absolutely out of his mind on this track...I sure hope a clean studio version shows up somewhere on a box set someday.
This also has to be one of the first times Bono uses the harmonica.

Just my opinion everyone, but I think this song is a shocker!!! I can just imagine non U2 fans really taking the piss out of this one, especially the rockabilly drum beat! Can you just picture Larry's face while he's laying this? I'm sure he was less than happy! But admittidely Edge is in top form. But boy, thank God this wasn't on JT!

I just tested the link and it worked fine for me. The file is only 4.6mb. Must be a problem on your end.
