MARK'S NOTCAST Ep 26 : U2's "October" 02 December 2020


02 December 2020, in which I revisit U2's second - and in my opinion, worst - album "October", the bands crisis of faith, the hurried recording schedule, playing most of the album live for the first time in front of much less than 50,000 people at Slane ("One of our worst gigs, ever" - The Edge), the cover photo of 'four people with bad haircuts', the associated singles "Gloria", "Fire" and "A Celebration", the 2008 2CD reissue, and the 2019 cream vinyl repressing. Non U2 stuff will be uploaded in future. I also discuss English/British exceptionalism, why do most Brits only speak one language, and forget to mention a whole bunch of stuff I later thought of.

My preferred running order :

01. I Threw A Brick
02. Gloria
03. I Fall Down
04. Rejoice
05. Fire
06. Tomorrow
07. A Celebration
08. With A Shout
09. Stranger In A Strange Land
10. Scarlet
11. Is That All?
12. October
