U2, "Driving to Midnight Mass, Dublin, Christmas Eve". (1983)
Think what you will about Bono, but I think this is a pretty evocative recording. (Irishmen can write, aye, but they also can speak. For better or worse :twitch: ).

Nice. Not a great song but cool over-the-top production. I had his first mid-80s solo album - 'Drums Along the Mohawk' - and it sounded for all the world like a Prince joint. Dude even writes, plays, sings and produces the whole thing.

Did you hear this on Steve's 'Underground Garage'? (Jean played bass and guitar with Steve's original Disciples of Soul, as well as the Plasmatics).
