The sun is throbbing on Leeds desert. The wind is blowing sand in the eyes of four twenty-something diggers, sweating and cursing as their hand-shovels slowly find their way. *Hit* Ã¢Â€Â“ there it is Ã¢Â€Â“ that's the chest, there's the answer. Cut to HQ, where Your Vegas tentatively place their booty Ã¢Â€Â“ a 7" record, unlabelled, mint condition Ã¢Â€Â“ on their old gramophone, and drop the needle. It speaks in a righteous vocal Ã¢Â€Â“ "Fight fire with fire, rain down on me, rain da-a-a-own. It lifts my love up higher..." That's the b-side, but it's promising, they know what they've found. A quick flip and it's confirmed Ã¢Â€Â“ the piano refrain intro, the dubious platitudes about God and justice, the sweeping guitar, the earnest falsettos, the intimate break with the epic solo to resume Ã¢Â€Â“ they've found it, and now they present it to the world. Ladies and Gentlemen behold Ã¢Â€Â“ The Great Lost Demos of U2. [Ally Brown]
