Has U2 been overly
candid during their last interview? ‘We realized people who want exciting,
revolutionary, important music aren’t buying latter-day U2 albums are they?’
Comments from The
Edge “it’s the least adventurous album we’ve ever made’ he said. “Over the last
few albums I’ve added more and more guitar pedals to find new sounds, the
pedals were beginning to look like a keyboard.” Asked about his lyrical
direction on this release, Bono blows a raspberry and laughs while the rest of
the band make armpit fart noises. ‘Really now’ says Bono ‘if you’re concerned about
my lyrical direction then I’m concerned about you.
We can only assume that this
was an interview that strayed from the stated promotional machine course, it
clearly make no fucking sense that the boys would be doing any interviews prior
to a release announcement.
Hey who the fuck are we to say what is real or not.
We call Bullshit on this interview.
