Cactus World News is an Irish rock band formed in Dublin in April 1984. Founded by Frank Kearns (guitar) and Eoin McEvoy (vocals), the first full stable lineup also included Wayne Sheehy (drums) and Fergal MacAndris (bass). They reformed in 2011 with a new lineup of Kearns, Sheehy and MacAndris, with Eoin Scott and Eoin Watkins. Their first release, and best known song was "The Bridge", which was produced by U2's Bono, and released on their Mother Records label. They toured the UK with The Cult in 1985 and signed to MCA Records. They performed at the Self Aid concert in Dublin on 17 May 1986. The band released their debut album, Urban Beaches in 1986 and gained impact hits with its three singles: "Years Later", "Worlds Apart" and a re-recording of "The Bridge".

In 1985 Bono saw Cactus World News performing live, and enjoying what he saw, he offered the band to record a one-off single on U2’s new label, Mother Records. Further more, he asked the band if they would allow him to produce the track, something he hadn’t done before, but something he expressed interest in. The band agreed, and recorded three tracks for their first single with Mother Records. The band would go on to record an album, Urban Beaches, released in 1986. For that release, The Bridge was re-recorded for that release, without any participation of Bono in the recording session. In 2001, the band would release a remastered version of Urban Beaches including several bonus tracks. Among the bonus tracks are the original three recordings from the Mother Records release, as recorded by Bono.
