"I put the now-legendary notice up. I think the wording was something like: 'Drummer seeks musicians to form band'. I just thought of it as a group of people coming together to have a bit of fun, it was never anything else. No ideas, no expectations."
- Larry Mullen jr.
The song 'Scarlet' was inspired by a thought in Bono's mind: "does God need salesmen?". The band was also in a minimalist mood that day.
