Can't say I heard anything about that! Not that I'd want to. The Eno stuff they did was crap. I do like some of the 80s singles they did. Are you buying it!?

Really? Think New Order/Joy Divsion, you wont be far off. Essential stuff imo.

HMHB wrote some good anthems and also wrote allot of "joke" songs. I've got some of the songs on various compilations. I took a quick look on google, this is one of their lyrics..

I know Bono and he knows Ono and she know's Eno's phone goes thus

LOL... they've certainly got the best band name, anyway!  Pretty sure I've not heard any of their songs, I always thought they were some obscure cult band.

I'm sure they did a co-headline tour with the Greedy Bastards! Seriously.

You'd know one of the songs.. Dickie Davies Eyes. Was in a advert in the 90s.

I would expect the guys, particularly Edge, to be a fan of HMHB. He's into that sort of Lo-Fi indie stuff from what I gather. And he probably takes the advice on that record cover quite seriously.

I didn't know that either until my friend and I were in a music shop in Edinburgh and she suddenly went 'omg, what's that?' and we examined it! We got funny looks but what else is new.

I heard about this from another journal I've visited. Don't know if he'd appreciate me linking to him, so here are the links to what he posted:
