"He is a brainy man and he thinks extreme poverty is stupid." — Bono, on Bill Gates



U2: McGonagle''s, Dublin

- August 17, 1978

by Bill Graham

It's as well Revolver have finally found themselves with competition like U-2 on the up and up. With a passionate lead singer who's not one to ape other's microphone poses and a guitarist who supplies a mild metal additive, U-2 are impressive contenders with the appetite and talent to improve beyond their already creditable status.

Standing apart from this year's new bands in their suss and willingness to learn that will soon end any technical faults, U-2 profit from the fact that they've an identity that needs little alteration. Revolver recovered in time but they had better not stand still, U-2 are ready to pass everyone out.

Oh, and both bands slew last week's British import, Advertising. Guaranteed Irish, guaranteed quality.
