Anton’s Blue Movie

Ridiculous press quote of the week. The Mirror says U2’s beautiful Anton Corbijn directed promo video for Electrical Storm is a porn flick, “their raciest video ever” which “stars drummer LARRY MULLAN (sic) as a womanising sex maniac”.

We’ll leave some space here to allow for your roar of laughter.


Yes we admit, we’ve made mockery (or should that be moppery) of Bono’s hairline from time to time in the past. From the days of the mullet to the present lack of. It’s all in good fun with no harm intended of course. We do love the man, really….

But we’re not the only ones it seems. We raise our hats to this website dedicated to uncovering the truth about our hero’s lack of locks.

Alternative link in case the first goes over its data limit.

Bono’s itsy bitsy mickey

You think you’ve seen it all, but you haven’t. One of uur readers, “popartist”, pointed us towards Uri Geller’s website where Geller talks about being subjected to Dave Stewart’s latest digital film at the National Film Theatre in London. The stars of this movie are none other than Bono’s wedding tackle and a spider. ( Cue sounds of crickets chirping.)

Brother Richard

The Irish Sunday Mirror reflects on the music career of The Edge’s brother Richard (“Dik”) Evans. The article amazingly neglects to mention that he was a founder member and guitarist of the Virgin Prunes for many years, then left the band in 1984. In the mid Nineties, Dik formed “Screech Owls” with Debbie Skow and released one single, “Desert/Hey Toreador” on Girl Records. He left the band before the release of their second single. Dik holds a degree in Neural Networking Technology. Although he isn’t currently pursuing a career in music, he did venture up on stage at The Edge’s 40th birthday bash last year for an impromptu rendition of the Virgin Prunes’s classic Sweethomeunderwhiteclouds.
