Bono's recorded a special contribution to the upcoming vinyl release 'Another Time, Another Place'.
The double 10" album, produced for U2.com subscribers, captures the band playing live at London's Marquee Club in 1980, as they took early songs on the road across Ireland and the UK.
On Side 4 of the the limited edition set, Bono looks back to September 1980, and four consecutive Mondays that the band played the famous Soho venue.
'The first Monday it was half full, the second Monday nearly full, the third Monday they had to turn people away, the fourth Monday, there were queues round the block, across the road and Wardour Street looked like an A-bomb had landed on it – we thought of it as "The Irish Invasion" – it’s incredible what a few hundred people believing in you does for your self confidence...'
Here's the track listing.
- The Ocean
- 11 O'Clock Tick Tock
- I Will Follow
- An Cat Dubh - Into The Heart
- A Day Without Me
- The Electric Co.
- Things To Make and Do
- Stories For Boys
- Boy Girl
- Out of Control
- Another Time, Another Place: U2 At The Marquee Club, September 1980 by Bono
'Another Time, Another Place' is now in production and we'll be emailing qualifying subscribers with dispatch details in the next few weeks. In May U2 also start making the tracks available to download.
May 14th can't get here any faster for some U2 fans. Bono has been on recovery since last falls bike accident. The boys have been in Vancouver working on the new tour.
Its different for sure, with no opening band, we have to wonder what will be the walk in music however lets talk more about what we have learned over the last few days. The New York Times has had access to the boys over the past week to give us some insight to what we can expect.
The concert will be two sets with an intermission with the first half pretty much as fixed set and the second set to be a bit more flexible with arbitrary selections.
U2 has always been on the cut edge side when it comes to technology not only from a sound prospective, stage and lights too. The band has been working on a new audio system that will suspend the speaker arrays from the ceilings pointing down, this will provide a complete immersive experience across the area floor.
The sound will be intense for everyone with no gaps within the house. Its considered to be uniformly transparent with the volume to be constant.
Now the stage will feature three risers, one "I" shaped one for "innocence" a round one shaped like lower case "e" for "experience and walkway called the divider stage to signify the "passage from innocence to experience. Designed by Es Devlin.
Remember the band promised another album while don't worry about the tour interference they the finest mobile recording studio heading out with them.
Bono has been writing songs with a few titles almost ready "Red Flag Day", "Civilization" and "Instrument Flying" We should expect the next album to be within the moment, which could mean more POP music.
So how is Bono you ask? Well within the TIMES report Bono stated that the recovery is going well however "It feels like I have somebody else's hand," the singer said. He likened the feeling to rigor mortis. "They say that nerves heal about a millimeter a week, so in about 13 months I should know if it's coming back." We should not expect Bono to be playing guitar.
So we are about 14 days out from the start and it sure looks to be another amazing tour. Be sure to download your mobile app today to be apart of the experience.
