Welcome to Zoo Station

Let the Bono bitching commence! Representatives of the 7 families in Ireland - Pat Carty, Springer Bell & the mighty Vorgongod plus (trying to get a word in edgeways) Leedsboy and your moderator \ referee DFB who attempts to take a contrary stance due to the last minute exit of the anti-Bono, Ganglesprocket. This includes throwing in a few opinions that are meant to rile so don't get fished in.

- U2 as a socio-political cyclone during the 1980's
- The new album: any good and is it marketing success story?
- Is the reaction to U2 for ver haterz akin to racism?
- Ganglesprocket's fence sitting email in full
- Rattle & Hum: Is taht when the cool kids checked out and does it fucking matter?

He may have a Messiah complex but he's not a naughty boy
