OTHER NOTES
This single was by an Australian band and was only released in limited quanitites in Australia in 1990 on the RooArt record label.  During a 1989 tour stop in Melbourne, Bono and the Edge recorded their portions of this song.  They were recorded by Michael Hutchence and Ollie Olsen, and were later sampled into the additional recording by Ecco Homo.  Bono contributes backing vocals to this song, and the Edge contributes to guitar.  A video for the song was released in Australia, and the video also included a cameo appearance by Bono.

There was a 12" test pressing promo which featured additional mixes of the title track.

My information on this release is limited.  If anyone has additional information to add please contact us.
