Receiving emails from Arcade Fire recently only adds to that ironic/information overload schtick that they are trying to cultivate and yet while they remain superb as a music act I think they fail to carry off the image and aesthetics of it all in the same way that U2 did in the early 90s.

I think a lot of that has to do with the front man. With all due respect to Win Butler he has none of the on stage bravado/ charisma or vocal personality that Bono has. But hey, there's no harm in dressing up as Mirrorball Man and trying is there?

You are right about Win, he's a bit of pain in the a** ;-)

Anyways, the lead single is their 1st ever song to reach #1 on a US chart, so good for them. It's a great track. Also read some great reviews for the album.

If you like ADSTHS (YAAA - Yet another Atu2 Acronym :-) ) , I suggest a couple of other Bono and/or U2 celt-rock collaborations:

Wild Irish Rose (Rattle and Hum era)
In a lifetime (with Clannad, UF timeframe)
Springhill Mining Disaster - Cover - Only ever performed Live on Irish TV
Introduction to the songs of experience AKA Beautiful Ghost - on the JT deluxe edition and medium rare album
And I assume you already know Tomorrow from the October Album


Thanks for the suggestions. I already know and love "In a Lifetime." I'll search for those others.

I have no idea of how to help you find the shirt...I just wanted to say that I wish I had a friend like you!

Hi everyone,

My best friend and I have been hanging around each as long as we can both remember and are big U2 fans. Ever since we watched the Elevation tour DVD at a very young age he hasn't shut up about The Edge's no 7 t-shirt. Every time The Edge was on TV or when we saw U2 live it was always in the first few things he would mention when seeing him. For about 10 birthdays and christmases now I've tried to get it online through e-Bay and other websites of that nature but have had no luck or they have been pretty crappy reproductions.

However his 21st is coming up soon and as a sappy full circle moment would like to finally get him this t-shirt. Any direction in where I could get a decent to very good replica of it would be amazing. I would greatly appreciate any advice

Thanks

Jack
