What Exactly is the Rattle and Hum Background Design....

Recommended Posts

For years now it's been bugging me (don't mean to bug ya....) what on earth the design of the Rattle and Hum film poster/vhs cover, dvd/blu ray cover is supposed to be...

...I mean, I know it's Bono with that stage lamp shining it on Edge...yes, that I am well aware of (although I have read it's a recreated pose in a studio for Anton to photograph and isn't as spontaneous as it looks)...but, what are the brown streaks supposed to be?  

Every time I see the image it just drives me nuts...does anyone know?!  I note that this design wasn't carried over to the vinyl/cassette/CD release of the "soundtrack" - and if ever there was a misuse of the word soundtrack this is it!
