Guys, you cant be serious. There has been some extremely brutal fighting going on in Ireland over the past 50 some years. Look up the IRA and reassess this

lmao
>>made some of the most critically acclaimed and best selling albums of the 1980s and 1990s, including Boy, The Joshua Tree, War, Achtung Baby, and The Unforgettable Fire
Critically acclaimed by plebs like you
>>worked with Brian Eno on several albums
So?
>>Achtung Baby was the first rock album to feature significant influence from electronic dance music and other contemporary experimental music and significantly widened their popularity, exposing listeners to groundbreaking music they would have otherwise never heard before, predating Kid A by 9 years
Listen to more music.

So?
>>is a patrician who had bands including but not limited to This Heat, Interpol, Kings of Leon, Bjork, Mission of Burma, The Fall, Einsturzende Neubauten, Public Enemy and Pixies open for his band when they were in their prime to give them exposure
Clearly patrician :^)

>>61910264
Contrary to popular belief, the Irish conflict wasn't contained in Norn Iron. There were bombings in Ireland and England as well.
>>
>>61910248
What the fuck are you on m80 I'm from Ireland, you are completely wrong. Dublin hasnt been war torn since the civil war since 1923
>>
>>61910446
the troubles were concentrated in N Ireland and there were lots of major incidents in mainland Britain
in terms of violence, very little happened in the Republic. to call it "war-torn Ireland" is ridiculous
>>
>>61910676
Yeah but lets be honest m8, it's such a shithole it may as well be worn-torn.
>>
Ah, but England has to behave itself now, Ireland is part of the EU and as such Belgium will stop at nothing to protect the potatoes.
