Budgie's in Trouble

U2's 'Red Hill Mining Town' was an unreleased single from the Joshua Tree, and has now been included for the first time on their new DVD. Here's the Neil Jordan directed video, which looks like it was shot in the engine room of the George. The money shot is most certainly Claytons 'budgie release', which should feature at the next Gay Oscars. Mullens 'saucy' hammering cannot be overlooked either.




*I am aware that the George is unlikely to have an engine room

Ahh the 80s - will we ever be so innocently naff again?

Can remember performing a very drunken rendition of that song some years back. The things you do...

I wouldn't be surprised. Big coal powered pistons, hard hats, men in dungarees...I can see it now.

But we'd go back in a shot wouldn't we?? High unemployment is such a tempting beast
