We’ve managed to get our hands on a number of (unused, but a little worn with age) copies of the 1985 Virgin Prunes book ‘The Faculties of a Broken Heart‘ by Swiss author Rolf Vasellari. U2 content is limited: a few mentions and a drawing/painting, plus handwritten lyrics by Bono, but the book provides an interesting views on Dublin’s most outrageous sons in words and images. Contains many unique pictures of Gavin, Guggi and all the other members of the group, as well as interviews with – mainly – Gavin. Fans interested in ordering details should get in touch through our contact page. And from the attic of Mr Friday’s abode, we’ve also rescued a bunch of limited edition Gavin Friday ‘bleeding heart’ t-shirts if you’d like to stand out in the crowd…
Straight from lalaland, that is. This month’s magazine (the dead trees version) reviews U2 sites and this is what they write about us:
If it’s U2 news and gossip you’re after, then U2log is an essential destination. Run by a team eagle-eyed fans in Holland, the UK and the USA, the site is updated two or three times a day with the latest rumours and information. There are quotes from newspapers, reprinted articles and links to the best U2 content on the web (the band even let them upload a couple of tracks from the new album). A simple site, but well worth visiting.
1. We’re mainly from Holland/Australia/Ireland. None of our editors are from the UK.
2. We do not reprint articles. We write our own material. This is in fact the strength of U2log.com
3. We were never given permission by the band to upload their material. Please believe us when we tell you everything we do is WRONG and we’ll go straight to hell for it.
4. Simple? Yeah, we k.i.s.s. you.
But we’re well worth visiting. They got that right.
