Hello Hello!!


January 12th, 2004

and while I'm at it @ 09:31 pm

volare:
I'm currently feelin: awed

...another track from the Salome outtakes, aka the Axtung Beibi sessions, is a frightening piece FWT'd "Back Mask U2"....
It's possibly the strangest, scariest thing I've ever heard from these men... the entire instrumental track it seems is being run backwards, (hence "backmask") but the lyrics....

The lyrics are crushingly painful. His voice sobs and bleeds, thick with tears and desolate longing that's almost becoming frantic even as it knows it will be denied.

In the end, I think this became 'So Cruel' or at least was the springboard for it as the final line we hear as it fades out is "between the horses of love and lust... I'm trampled.. underfoot..."

Again... if you have not heard this, lemme know, email me at volare@livejournal or post here and I'll put it up for a few days. I'll have to take the other one down to do this, just so you're aware.

I haven't heard that one - it sounds like it would be amazing.

The Salome/Axtung Bebe Outtakes interest me because it gives us a look in the brains of the band. You can listen to the progression of their ideas as they come closer to the songs that end up being in Achtung Baby. What I find really neat is how different sounds use different styles - some older, some newer, and how they eventually got the style they wanted. For example, the 6:31 version of I Feel Free has a lot of the music of what will eventually turn into The Fly, but the vocals seem more akin to Boy. Take Today, however, seems more like an ATYCLB song.

Sweet Baby Jane is my favorite of the songs I've heard so far from the Salome bootlegs (I've only been able to collect 12 through KaZaA). It has a definite Celtic/Folk sound to it, and could possibly have been in Joshua Tree or Rattle and Hum. Of the songs from Salome I heard so far that never made it Prime Time, this is the song I wish they would someday complete.
