Two previously unheard U2 songs have been discovered by fans.

Recordings were unearthed by the fan site ATU2 of 'In Your Hand' and 'Concentration Cramp', two early songs which were reportedly performed during a gig in August 1979 at Dublin's Dandelion Market.

The recordings were made by Pete McCluskey, a member of U2's support band that day, The Strougers.

They are apparently the only recordings of these two tracks in existence, and are available to hear on YouTube.

John Caddell and Larissa Nolan discussed this in our weekly music slot.

They also looked ahead to this week's big gigs from Stevie Wonder at the 3Arena, and Bob Dylan and Neil Young at Nowlan Park.
