First, Adrian, condolences on the death of your VCR! :(

I empathise, because my VCR seems to have run away from home. (Yes, it's
a weird story...)

Anyways, I know the photo you're talking about, because I noted the title,
too. But it's "Down All the Days", which also happens to be the name of a
song by the Pogues, as well as a book written by Irish author Christy
Brown. Yes, Brown was the man portrayed by Daniel Day-Lewis in "My Left
Foot"; "Down All the Days" is probably his best-known book. I don't know
if U2 were recording a cover of the Pogues song, or if they were using
that as a working title for one of their own compositions.
