MARK'S NOTCAST Ep 46 : U2's "Pop" ... (or "Shouting At God").15 Jan 2021.

Mark's Notcast Episode 46 : U2's "Pop" ... (or "Shouting At God"). This time round a deep dive into U2's flawed, fascinating tenth studio album*, the failure of selling 7 million albums, mid-life crisis, the use of classic Pop/Art imagery such as Warhol, Munch and Lichtenstein, the lyrics and narrative structure of the album, CD Bloat, Directors Cuts, why the worst songs of every U2 album are named after places or countries, "The Crunch", music as a brand, the McDonalds Arch of Pop, Pop/Mart, the premature nostalgia of "Discotheque", the greatest U2 gif on the Internet, the remixed/re-recorded and revised versions on the singles and the compilations, and the best Jarvis Cocker quote there is.
