Never seen before in the AB but too important for subversive pop music to be forgotten by AB25: the VIRGIN PRUNES. It all started in Dublin with GAVIN FRIDAY, GUGGI and BONO who formed The Lipton Village collective. Their first performances were centered around art, literature and beauty. Bono started up U2 very soon after and Gavin Friday and Guggi established the VIRGIN PRUNES. Their concerts were provocative, avant-garde and sexually loaded with a dadaist twist. Their fans christened themselves The Beautiful People and worshipped classic Virgin Prunes albums such as ‘A New Form Of Beauty’ and ‘If I Die I Die’. ‘Caucasian Walk’, ‘Pagan Love Song’, ‘Come To Daddy’ and ‘Walls Of Jericho’ were the best known songs of their 10 year career.
