v2 (it's a shillelagh, not a cane, punks)
so ... after hearing the version of the song no line on the horizon that is making the rounds today (this is the b-side, not the album version, apparently), i am curious to hear how different it is from the album version. supposedly it's rawer and fuzzier on the album, says one guy. slower. totally different. more kings of leon-ish on the album says someone else who heard the album. (this is my cindy adams reporting skillz impersonation.)
the version out on the internet today reminds me of a 90s u2 b-side. the singer, on this album, is going to be a challenge for some people to handle, i think. this is not news. he is going for it. "oh oah woah woo."
also, hopefully the u2 as house band on letterman for five straight nights deal (march 2 - 6) will help craig ferguson come up with better parody material (yer edge doesn't work, craig):
