Post-punk icon Ian McCulloch on reworking Echo & The Bunnymen’s biggest hits, hanging out with Phil Lynott back in the day, and why he’s finally developed an appreciation of U2 – sort of.
Echo & The Bunnymen singer Ian McCulloch is pondering the evils of social media, one of many topics on which he has a robust opinion.
“My favourite was ‘Ian McCulloch is just a gay Stevie Wonder wannabe’,” he says. “I thought – what’s wrong with that?! He could be accused of racism, blindism and gayism that fella! So yeah, I’m standing up for the gay Stevie Wonder wannabes.
“Everyone is an expert on everyone else now,” he continues. “I don’t even know what the sod I am about, which I like. I’m still thinking, ‘What the sod I am doing?’”
