Sunday Bloody Sunday

This came across my Pandora the other day & now it’s in my head. Lead wannabe-paramilitary and grand-gesture-generator Bono has talked in the past about how he heard the Clash as a youngster, and being absolutely riveted by their passion and their ideological and musical firepower. He’s also been quoted to the effect that everything political U2 ever did as a band they learned from the Clash. It’s obvious they’ve learned those lessons well, as here. Not everybody can (or should) make arena rock, but U2 can because they’re good at it. Dig the Tymon Dogg-esque fiddle weaving through the mix. Turn it up, play it through a few times, and rattle the windows.
