Where the Streets Have 2 Names features hundreds of previously unpublished photographs by award-winning photographer Patrick Brocklebank, documenting U2’s early days as well as the rise of other groups who were part of Dublin’s music scene at that time, such as the Virgin Prunes, the Blades, the Black Catholics, the Undertones and the Buzzcocks.
The photos capture iconic moments in the lives of these bands, particularly U2, and are accompanied by numerous untold anecdotes about the band members and the long-gone music venues of that era, where many of the bands’ most seminal gigs were performed. The book captures the atmosphere of the time – a recession-hit Dublin, a youthful individuality and a sense of rebellion – and provides a fascinating insight into the culture and characters of the Dublin music scene from 1978 to 1981.
