With a bang and a clatter, the dustbin lids are centre-stage as the band begin studio experiments for a new album.

'We're banging the dustbin lids back home in Dublin,' Bono told, speaking at the Golden Globes Awards earlier in the week. 'We've got a rehearsal studio/recording studio type of deal.
'Edge, I must say, is really doing some extraordinary stuff. It's a guitar record. Which is, I think, our first.'

'I love singles in rock and roll, the great 45s,' Bono added. 'That's what I loved about Nirvana, that's what I loved about the Sex Pistols, and going back to the Beatles and the Rolling Stones < when you make that one record that changes everything.'

The new U2 record, added Edge, is only in its very early stages. 'We're working on the songs right now. It's far too early to say if anything's a single. But there's some nice stuff coming through.'

Optimistic as ever, Bono predicted that it will be in the shops by the end of the year - or early 2004.
