Snipping from Chris Erdman’s post, Preachers Who Have “Everything But ‘It’”:

Michka is asking his friend, Bono, about the band’s success. “Why did a band from Dublin of all places emerge to surpass so many other great bands?” Michka asks….

Bono: We had a phrase to describe some of the bands of the time–not the Bunnyman or the Teardrop Explodes–but the ones you’d see walking down the King’s Road in London, so looking the part with so little to say: ‘Everything but It.’ We, on the other hand, had ‘Nothing but It.’ And that was the difference.
