“Red Hill Mining Town” is a song by the rock band U2. It is the sixth track from their 1987 album, The Joshua Tree. A rough version of this song was worked on during the early Joshua Tree album writing sessions in 1985. The focus of the song is on the National Union of Mineworkers’ 1984 strike in England that occurred in response to the National Coal Board’s campaign to close uneconomic mines. A music video was produced in February 1987 for the song and was directed by Neil Jordan. The song was planned for release as the album’s second single, but it was ultimately shelved on favour of “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For”. Read on...
