"I think the Irish and Argentinian have a lot in common. We think too much... We drink too much... And we are religious - but we argue with God! And when we are not arguing with God... We argue with the British!"
- Bono, on the 3rd concert in La Plata, April 3rd 2011.
The title for the song 'Shadows and Tall Trees' is taken from William Goldings "Lord Of The Flies", whose 5th chapter bears the same name. The song, and the album, is about boyhood, innocence and struggle, as is Golding's book.
