Echo and The BunnyMac
YORK Fibbers hosts echoes of a true rock ‘n’ roll legend in a December 20 rescheduled show.
Original tickets remain valid for Ian McCulloch (pictured), mercurial and mysterious front man of Echo And The Bunnymen, formed in 1977 with Will Sergeant and Les Pattinson and debuting at Eric’s with Teardrop Explodes.
By the time of Crocodiles, Pete de Freitas had replaced the drum machine and follow up Heaven Up Here was in the UK Top Ten.
The Back Of Love, The Cutter, Never Stop and, of course, The Killing Moon followed and 1984’s Ocean Rain consolidated the album’s continued commercial success. In the same year, McCulloch had a minor solo hit with his cover version of “September Song”.
McCulloch quit in ’88, de Freitas was sadly killed in a motorcycle accident a year later and Ian continued his solo career with albums Candleland and Mysterio.
Fast forward and Echo are still very much alive, producing some of their best work alongside stunning live shows - and Ian solo is no less entertaining, in fact the reviews have been fantastic.
