What started as a 1989 radio collage of U2's "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" and obscenity-laced outtakes from Casey Kasem's "American Top-40," took on greater proportions with its 1991 commercial release. The cover art, featuring a prominent "U2" graphic at a time when the Irish band's new LP was due in stores, prompted a lawsuit from Island Records, and drew additional fire from both Casey Kasem and Negativland's own label, SST. The resulting conflagration quickly became Negativland's raison d'être, providing grist for the subsequent CD/book "The Letter U and the Numeral 2," and its expanded reissue "Fair Use."
Over the last decade, the original pair of tracks, yanked from distribution shortly after their release, have been available only through the collector's market and underground trading. This maybe-it's-a-bootleg-maybe-it's-not release augments the original studio work with four live versions, including two 1993 post-lawsuit editions taped at San Francisco's Great American Music Hall. Four additional tracks from the band's post-apocalypse "Music For Lawyers Tour" examine the original controversy with a blenderization of the original participants. The disc wraps with a sound-effect bleeped-for-radio-play edit of the original, unairably profane, "Special Edit Radio Mix."
Available in surprisingly wide distribution, collectors who missed out on the original are advised to grab a copy while it's still beyond the industry's radar.

The ultimate underdogs of this plastic culture have done it again! Negativland naturally draws out lawyers like s--- draws flies, so if you are a fan, you better get this album before it once again rains lawsuits! Not only do they re-release the two legendary "banned" tracks that started the whole sordid legal hassle, they also include many "live" versions, complete with all the "Weatherman's" wheezings, obscure phraises about his cat, formula 409, doorbell transformers, and his very nasal lampooning of the band U2's juvenile lyrics!
Warning: Do not listen to on headphones and fall asleep while doing so, you will be rudely awaken after the end song. Nine minutes after that "sanitized" song "ends," the silence is broken by a collage of Casey Kasem's potty mouth spewing a plethora of foul words!

Resurrected at last, this release contains the infamous Negativland co-opting of U2 and Casey Casem's expletive filled rantings about the Irish band and a dead dog. Absolute entertainment, and better yet, this rerelease contains live versions, as well as some history of the U2 plane and copyright infringement law. May not be to everyone's cup of tea, but it is very very funny to hear the voice of America's Top 40 totally lose it.

I'm glad this is available again. This stuff has been legendary since Island records forced them to take it off the market in the early 90's. As you already know from reading other reviews, this is the infamous Negativland collage of the U2 song "Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" with a tape of radio celebrity Casey Kasem letting out a littany of four-letter words during the taping of "American Top 40". This CD contains various versions of the basic theme, including a "radio friendly" version which has the expletives bleeped out by sound effects like car horns, etc., which is still quite funny.

Even listening to it all these years later it's still very effective. One reason is that the subjects open themselves to ridicule as much as they do. To quote a reviewer on another website (don't remember who, sorry!), making fun of U2 never goes out of style. Casey Kasem's voice is so instantly recognizable, and his style so candyassed, that it's totally hysterical to listen to his profanity-ridden tirades. Kasem's comments actually help mock U2's preposterousness. Introducing their song he rattles off their names, and when he gets to "The Edge" he breaks off and says "this is B.S.! Nobody cares!", and then states the title of this CD. I think that echoes a lot of people's reaction to the guitarist's stupid monicker.

This is being promoted as "semi-legitimate" or "bootleg", with Negativland's label's name modified to "Sealard". I'm not buying it. Keep in mind these are the same guys who circulated the fake news story about a kid killing himself after listening to "Christianity is Stupid". These guys are savvy media pranksters. Nevertheless, given the previous hullabaloo over this recording, you'll want to pick this up before it ends up on someone else's Bonfire of the Vanities.
