U2 Magazine 11


Initially published: 1984
Author: Geoff Parkyn, Editor


This is the eleventh issue of U2’s first fan club magazine. The magazine is simple, black and white text on regular sized paper, stapled in the middle. The cover adds a bit of colour. The magazine was edited by Geoff Parkyn for the entire run.

Contents include:

  • News (New album)
  • Love Devotion and Surrender (War analysis)
  • U2 Lyric Competition
  • Band Aid, Pen Pals / Swops
  • U2 Favorite Songs Poll
  • Bono’s Top 10 of 1983.

“Band Aid” was a note in the magazine asking U2 fans who had a band to send in a demo tape, and they would mention the band in future issues of the magazine, and might pass it along, and they mention selling a fan single as well.
