I don't know if the lineup has changed, but I started listening to them when I was a teenager and they'd already been around a while. I think they're like the same generation as Bono, but of course they have always inhabited a different aspect of the music universe.

I don't get U2 at all and while I really like God Speed in certain contexts, they're never a band that make it into my regular rotation, though I have had some great experiences listening to them.

It's cool man, God Speed scrambles brains.

They're a tad younger than Bono, I believe. Maybe 5-10 years. They're actually a bad example of what I'm talking about (a good one would be the recent Anamanaguchi AMA), but this letter happens to be perfect.
