Has anyone read the jaw dropping interview with Echo and His Bunnyman in the current edition of The Mojo? David Cavanagh spends 22 hours with Mac the Mouth and it’s unexpectedly sad and moving. I won’t give too many spoilers but on the surface all is well in Bunnyworld – after several years in the wilderness crowdfunding their own LPs they’ve actually got a major label deal with BMG. The first fruits of which – is – oh…Bunnymen classics ‘re-imagined’ with strings or more ‘intimate arrangements’ (Alarm bells ringing already). Will (interviewed separately of course) sounds as chipper as ever, and remains one my all time under-rated guitar heroes. As for Ian… The things that stuck with me most were the teddy, the fly-zapping machine and the blue plastic bag deliveries. A sobering read. Still one of the great voices in rock and when he’s on form – a stellar front man who flaunts the smoking ban (although last time I saw the band he got a bit handy with his fists with a sound engineer). Ah well, he may have his demons but still worth more than a billion Morrisseys.
