U2 [1986.01.30] RTE2 Studios (Dublin, Ireland) [SBD]

RTE2 Studios 
Dublin, Ireland
January 30th, 1986

Soundboard Recording
Encoded: 320 Kbps MP3

Track List:
01 - Womanfish
02 - Trip Through Your Wires
03 - Knockin' On Heaven's Door

U2 appear on a late night Irish television show called TV Gaga and play two new songs. One, Womanfish, has never been performed elsewhere or released in any form; Bono claims it is about a mermaid the band met in America. The other is a very early version of Trip Through Your Wires introduced as "I Trip Through Your Wires", during which Bono sings "in this town" repeatedly. After these two songs, the band cover a Bob Dylan song to conclude their set. The set is ramshackle and the band are almost certainly drunk, particularly Bono.
