'Very Raw, Rock 'n' Roll'

30 May 2003
That's how Edge describes the music the band are coming up with in the studio.

Speaking to Xfm Online in London, Edge expressed delight at the way the recording is going.

"It's going really well," he said, speaking at the Ivor Novellos, where the band picked up the award for 'Outstanding Song collection'. "And we're writing some of the best songs we've ever written. It's encouraging to get an award like this, it's encouraging to kick even harder and make sure that the next batch of songs are as good as anything we've ever done."

"It's hard to describe it, other than it's just a very raw rock n' roll album," he continued. "A band in its primary colours of guitar, bass, drums, voice and a lot of vitality and energy... so far anyway. By the time it comes out it could be a country and western album."

"For me the last record and tour was just a return to the basic sound of the electric guitar and how amazing that can sound," he explained, "The simplicity of it. And this new record follows on from that, but even more extreme."

"We'll probably spend the rest of the year finishing it and we'll maybe have it out early next year."
