Song of the Day

Thanks all for your responses in last week's poll; this looks like it'll be fun.. ;)

I've decided on a Friday Flashback/Weekend Wayback theme for the time being.
For the next while I'll post tracks from the 1978 demo record; I've brought you Street Mission previously, on the heels of the tragically amusing video clip that recently surfaced.

Today's selection is: Trevor

Trevor's here, oh dear..... Trevor's here, forever

Trevor "Strongman" Rowan was a member of Lypton Village; you may be better acquainted with his brothers Derek and Peter. Derek Rowan is known to most U2 fans as Guggi, and young Peter's face is forever emblazoned on the War album (as well as Boy for everyone but the US market...) and several other U2 releases.
Trevor also played bass in the Virgin Prunes with Dik Evans and Gavin Friday. Is it about him? Inspired by him? Bono's been unclear about this in past interviews...

Listen for bits and pieces of other songs all over this one. Touch, for example.... Comment with the ones you can pick out!
