Love the flyer-MCR of the 1980s-hoardings (which were the BB messenger of their day) everywhere, crumbling buildings, demolition and attempts at regeneration.

That's not V2 on the poster. It's a little-known band called U2. See here (4th paragraph) for more info: www.ltmrecordings... I wonder what happened to them?

I thought it said U2 at first, but then I thought, surely not!

@Abigail: Supporting Blurt, too! In an alternative universe, Blurt would be playing stadiums, while U2 would be releasing CDs in editions of 500. At least they were billed above the Tom & Jerry cartoons, thereby avoiding Spinal Tap-esque ignominy. www.youtube.com/w...
