U2: Uncle Sam's, Minneapolis MN
Laura Fissinger, Musician, July 1981

Now with the American release of their debut LP, Boy, U2 have risen to the dizzying post of fave rookies in the colonies, too. Actually, they share the position with a rotating handful of other newborn British post-punkers like Teardrop Explodes, Echo and the Bunnymen and the Psychedelic Furs.
