Monday, February 15, 1982 Austin American-Statesman C7 ' At top of its powers, U2's as solid as rock By ED WARD American-Statesman Staff 01 all the so-called (misnamed is more, like it) neo-psychedelic bands England has sent this way in the past year, none has the potential to break through the commercial market like the Northern Irish band U2, who played Saturday night at the Opera House. Like the others, they employ a thick sound dependent not so much on Individual songs as on the interplay between the guitarist's expertly played arpeggios, the vocalist's strong lyric delivery and a rock-solid beat. The fact that they can write melodies that take chances, like "An Cat Dubh," "I Will Follow," and "Gloria," is what makes them stick in the mind's ear long after Echo and the Bunnymen and the rest have faded.',, Austin has long been a U2 stronghold, so we were treated to a new song, "Celebration," in the course of the show. The size and average age '-f of the audience was surprising; and with this many young fans, it's only a matter of time until they're major stars. It would help if radio took notice, but because they're still tarred by the "new wave" brush, that is unlikely. My only problem with the band is its sameness. The three songs I mentioned are virtually the only ones I can remember. But to teens, when you've got a lead singer as cute as Bono, that's a secondary consideration. The show was opened by two local bands. Standing Waves immediately preceded U2, and, to my mind, they're even stronger. It's too bad that so many people here have become used to them: They play music that engages the heart, head and feet, and with proper exposure could give any new band U2 included a run for its money. Cevin Cathell's new band Network (there already is a Network, Cevin, with two albums out on CBS) turned out to be One Hand Clapping, who became Wildcat and the Dragons, minus Wildcat, the lumpy lead singer, plus Cevin. As for the music, well, I'd call the Police, but at the moment it's only petty larceny. Time will tell. AUSTIN 6 24 HA ADULT THEATRE COMPLEX ' PHONE: 385-5328 L 521 THOMPSON OFF 183 -1 Ml S.
