Simply said Luminous Times was far superior to Holy Joe, you prefer to
use the word 'dirt' but that's your very own fabrication which we're all
I gave credit to 90's U2 but not across the board, I'd just like to see
them take more creative risks and not play it safe. When the first
thing coming of U2's marketing rep to ICE mag(Feb 1997) relates to
'stone cold hits' on pop as she put it, while the better tracks are
viewed by her as 'risky' since their point of reference is the usual
mainstream schlock. It was a precursor of things to come including the
singles selection from the suits at Island.
Quickie Rattle and Hum clarification, after the theatrical release had
run it's course, U2 were still in the red until video sales drew them
toward break even. They made comments relating to the experience being
a 'real eye opener' and they're not in it 'to lose money.'
In light of yesterday's post about U2 songs in movies, there's a Phil
Joanou connection, his 'State of Grace' movie about the irish mob in New
York featured 'Trip Through Your wires' in a bar scene with Sean Penn
and Gary Oldman, film was from 1990, good flick.
Not sure if someone mentioned 'Aill I Want is You' in Reality Bytes,
solid performance from Ethan Hawke and Ryder.
