Australia’s Triple M 104.9 radio posted a response from Aussie band The Tender Trap to comments made by Edge.
In 2010, U2 guitarist, The Edge, publicly referred to The Temper Trap’s ‘Sweet Disposition’ track and said it was very similar to the Irish band’s classic hit, “Where The Streets Have No Name”.
But after performing live in studio for Triple M’s Hot Breakfast program, The Temper Trap’s Lorenzo Sillitto fired a broadside back at U2.
“We thought there was some in-fighting going on because we heard The Edge had not that great a thing to say about us,” said Sillitto.
Decide for yourself. I didn’t notice any similarities to U2 when I heard it on the radio as I was too busy thinking the singer sounded exactly like Jimmy Somerville from Bronski Beat (showing my advanced age here…)
