If you’ve ever wondered what they sound like, you can hear a couple tunes. A bit “poppy,” but not too bad, I must say. Frankly, every bit as good as U2 were at that point. 🙂

And yes, I emailed them to see if it’s an actual band member running that page, or a fan. If it’s a band member, that might make for a fun conversation…

    Just about the Blades, Dave Fanning interviewed them on RTE Radio One a couple of weeks ago…Might be able to find it still online (Drivetime programme). As far as I remember, though, no mention of U2 at all.
