Sandro Olivo is the editor of two community newspapers in Melbourne, Australia. Around the age of 12, he heard U2’s Angel of Harlem on radio station Triple M.
The lyric “An empty glass, the lady sings, eyes swollen like a bee sting” got his attention, and the more that U2 songs electrified the airwaves, the more he was hooked.
A high school friend made him a mixed cassette of Under a Blood Red Sky and Rattle and Hum songs, and so began and infatuation with the band.
This blog mainly deals with any U2 links to Australia, but is happy to step outside that boundary from time to time.
