U2: War

Gavin Martin, New Musical Express, 26 February 1983

"If people come along expecting the world from U2 then they're gonna get it. I'm not afraid we won't be able to give it to them."
– Bono Vox 1981.

"What interests me are the three primary colours; bass, guitar and drums. The three sounds are basic enough to have unlimited resources."
– Bono Vox 1982.
