General Music Discussion / Re: Rock's next torchbearer?

I will check out both Wolf Alice and Gang of Youths.

As for War on Drugs, not sure either if they truly are a "rock an roll" band, I was just passing along The New Yorker article. But I do love their music. :-)

Kite and Sometimes are incredibly personal. I find Iris to be even more personal especially then with the old video footage when they did it live.

The ending to Iris "Iris wakes to my nightmares..." makes me tear up every time, really powerful and personal lyricism there.

Have you thought of contacting someone in the Irish government to officially declare September 25th International U2 Day? Has anyone ever tried to get official recognition for the band as an important cultural phenomenon unique to the Republic of Ireland? I'm surprised it hasn't already happened, though they did get the keys to the city of Dublin a few years ago, if I remember correctly.

I always wear my U2 t-shirts to promote my love for the band but, as September 23rd will be my 53rd birthday and it falls on a Saturday, I will play & watch U2 non-stop that weekend, including on Monday the 25th.Luckily, I live 2 minutes from an Irish pub so I'm sure I'll find an excuse to pop in and request they play U2  ;)

nice birthday date, 23rd September happens to be mine also. here's a pre-birthday toast to you, as i'll probably be too drunk to be posting anything that day :)

I agree. I don't listen to Sometimes. My father died when I was 18 after a long illness, and I find that song upsetting.

Wait and see really is the best idea...

I still recall Elevation being compared to the brilliant Cannonball in Q Magazine.

It was like being promised  fine vintage Champagne and getting a glass of flat Pomagne.

Now that I listen to it, I can see where whoever it was came up with that comparison. The opening keyboard/guitar(?) riff to Elevation before Edge's main guitar riff kicks in seemed to remind them of the main slide guitar riff used in Cannonball.

Hmmmm...the two songs are about a million miles away in terms of quality though - i'd like to think even the most passionate u2 fan would concede that point!

I would. I hear the similarity, but Cannonball is a 90s classic, and Elevation is barely worthy of mention in U2's catalog. Not an awful song, but they have done dozens of songs that are better, and the Breeders' song, again, is 90s gold.

I'm sure no one doubts 'NME,' 'The Diffuser' & 'The Irish Sun'.

Single release only 21 days away.  Apparently.

and Hot Press.

Ill have to listen to Elevation and Cannonball during this week's eclipse to determine which is better.
