I just went googling for info about a long-gone Tennessee art-punk band called the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and came upon an old Christgau Consumer Guide that made my head spin. A profusion of groundbreaking, era-defining, bonafide classics... and U2's Boy (" ... if Bono's echoey vocals already teeter on the edge [in-joke] of grandiosity, how are they going to sound by the time he plays the Garden?"). March 30, 1981.
