Negativland

U2 12" (SST 272)

The much-threatened slice'n'dice of U2's I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For by the Contra Costa County cowboys has finally hauled itself across the ocean, and what a monster it is! There are two very different but complementary mixes, which present the U2 hit as just one part of a wider (Negativ)landscape of ham radio operators, tape cut-ups, outtakes of Casey Kasem swearing every time he screws up, a cute little dead dog called Snuggles, and the omnipresent whining narrator/singer trying very hard to get to grips with Bono's words on his own warped terms. Let us hope U2 fans buy it in their thousands, hoping it is a new single called Negativland; rock music will never be the same again, again. [MG]
