U2: "11 O'Clock Tick Tock" 7" and U2ROK EP [Oct. 23rd, 2001|01:40 am]

Picked up the 11:00 single for a buck at a sale in Brooklyn over the weekend. It's dated 1980, they look very young in the picture on the back, and listening to it they're obviously not there quite yet. Wow, I said to Lisa, it's sort of nice to know that they didn't get good for a couple of years. "They were never exactly _bad_," Lisa pointed out. Then I put on U2ROK, and a live version of 11:00 soared like a hang-glider out of the speakers. Recorded like four months later, I think. "Boy, when they got good, they got really good, didn't they?" L. pointed out.
