Damn and Blast
Hydragenic has been getting horribly excited about the new U2 single Electrical Storm. I had a poke around on Limewire (cos that's how I decide which records to buy, he said firmly) and found two versions...and now I'm hooked on the 'Orbit Radio Edit'. Just a souped-up version of the chorus looping round and round and round. And fab for it.
Oh shit. I'm finally going to have to buy a U2 record...

Buying a U2 record is something that eventually happens to us all. I'd sworn off them for years, until I became hooked on certain songs of theirs, and ended up buying their entire back catalogue from Achtung Baby onwards in an HMV sale . . . woe is me.

Limewire? I suggest you pay more attention to prolific.org - standard and Orbit remix both featured recently (I won't mention the Army of Lovers track though as it was my fault...)

Are you certain you have the right Orbit mix? There's a lot of fakes going around. Here's the real one: http://u2log.com/archive/audio/Electrical_Storm_Orbit.mp3

I hadn't, but I may actually prefer my fake, bizarrely. It's just a round-and-round loop of the chorus...which is after all the best bit. :-)
