"The Eejit" (1986)
“The Eejit” was a working title developed while recording The Joshua Tree.
“The Eejit” was an early working title for “Red Hill Mining Town,” and very little is known about it other than the early title which was revealed in an early issue of Propaganda. We look at the early titles for The Joshua Tree in more detail in our article “The Eejit, 3-D Funk and Womanfish: The Joshua Tree Demo Recordings“.
In our interview with Kevin Fitzgerald of the Arklow Shipping Band, he also revealed that the working title for “Red Hill Mining Town” when they recorded their brass parts was still “The Eejit”.
