U2 (2)

U2 are cunts…

The cuntitude of their frontman is legendary… But this latest stunt really is taking the piss…In 2007 their ‘Joshua Tree’ album was reissued as a ’20th Anniversary Deluxe Edition’… This contained unreleased and rare tracks, DVDs etc and was reasonably priced.

Fast forward to 2017: and a ’30th Anniversary Deluxe Edition’ is coming out… It’s the same as the 2007 one (without the DVD and some new flash packaging) with (it says) ’25 unreleased tracks’… 18 of the tracks are from a live concert recorded in 1987, and the other 7 are ‘new remixes’ of Joshua Tree tracks… And the price for this ‘new’ set borders on the obscene… For a live CD and a few pointless remixes… Cunts….

U2’s ‘Songs Of Innocence’ album was obviously filched off William Blake, but David Axelrod also did a fine album with that title in 1968… Bozo and Co’s next one will be called ‘Songs Of Experience’ which was also another good Axelrod album (1969)…

It’s OK for U2 to nick album titles and photographs (The Unforgettable Fire album cover), but they try to financially and professionally ruin some ex-employee for trying to sell one of Bozo’s pimp hats?!
