Stereo MCs: Zooropean Sons

Paul Lester, Melody Maker, 26 June 1993

Stereo MCs are already one of the biggest (dance) bands in Britain. By the end of the summer, after touring Europe with U2, unarguably the biggest (any genre) band on the planet, they should go supernova. Paul Lester joins the Stereos on the German leg of U2's Zooropa tour, finds out what the two acts think of each other, gets an exclusive blast of U2's new single, 'Numb', from the Edge and wonders about Bono's courageous stand in the face of fascism.
