Biography

There are six artists:

1) The Edge (aka David Howell Evans), is best known as the guitarist for U2, but he has also released material on his own.
The soundtrack for the 1986 UK film Captive is the only solo album to date by The Edge.
He approached Michael Brook, creator of the Infinite Guitar, which The Edge regularly uses, to collaborate on this soundtrack album; Brook co-produced and helped with the instrumentals and some of the writing.

Edge also approached a young vocalist just beginning to appear on the Dublin scene to provide vocals for the main theme. This was Sinéad O’Connor, who would shortly afterwards release her debut album. Larry Mullen Jr also provided drums on the main theme.
The music on Captive is a mix of ambient styles. The majority of tracks are instrumentals. The track “Heroine” was released as a single.

2) The Edge was an American punk band founded by Victor Garcia-Rivera in the early 1980’s. The Edge was a local favorite at the Jockey Club in Newport, Kentucky. Their first single was recorded in late 1983 and released in early 1984 on their own Smear Records. Later in 1984 the band relocated to Boston where they recorded a second single for Throbbing Lobster records.

3) The Edge was a rock band formed in the late 70s by Jon Moss (later of Culture Club) and Lu Edmonds after the break up of their former band The Damned. Their debut 45 was “Macho Man” release by Albion in 1978.
