I don’t know what Bono and the lads are having for nosh before their shows in Croker at the moment, but I’m pretty sure it’s not a patch on what Yngve and the Innocent are served by their catering department.
I supported the guys in the best little venue in Ireland’s northeast (The Spirit Store), just recently and just before soundcheck they concocted what I think must be the most awesomest sandwiches I’ve ever seen in my life.
Photographic evidence, as promised, of sandwich prep:
For the culinary-minded, these sandwiches consisted of, white bread, butter, baked beans (cold), turkey slices, cucumber, pickle, tomato and there may or may not have been some salt and pepper floating around in there also. As you can see, they were prepped on tour flyers (in case the table was dirty, obviously). Oh ! And there was cheese ! How could I forget the cheese !
Beat that Bono.
Yngve and the Innocent are doing a mess of dates around Ireland at the moment. They most remind me of The Band, and I would highly recommend you catch them. There’s probably a date near you if you’re in the country – here’s their myspace, and their schedule:
