"I think they call it the vino verite. I'm not so precious about stuff like that. But the others don't like it very much."
- Bono on the famous 'beach clips', recorded outside his house in France.
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.
