Echo & The Bunnymen - The Cutter

Echo & The Bunnymen - The Cutter

A journalist – who shall remain nameless – said to me the other day he’d never heard of Echo And The Bunnymen… and worse ‘that it sounds like a kids TV programme’!!!!

In an effort to educate anyone who has forgotten/ doesn’t know/ has never heard of the fantastic Mac McMculloch and brilliant Will Sergeant.
At The Bunnymen’s recent gig in Liverpool – Mac requoted ‘The Cutter’ as being … the greatest song ever written.

It may not be – but it is still magnificent!

Last weekend Gecko went up to Liverpool… I told Shalagh Fogarty of radio 5 fame about the weekend (which was fantastic) and she said Gecko should do the PR for Liverpool… wouldn’t that be brilliant fun!

Echo & The Bunnymen's Ian McCulloch - and a Gecko!

Here’s a bit more about our adventure…
We went up to Liverpool at the weekend, had a great time. We arrived on Friday to meet with our favourite journo at the Liverpool Echo. Following a freshen up at our hotel 5 minutes from the Albert Docks we went for a drink at the Hope Street Hotel, where who should walk in but the ‘Mighty Reds’ – Andrew was very excited, although they did all look a bit glum! Then we went to see Echo And the Bunnymen at the Phil – after which I was very excited to meet Mac McCulloch and Will Sergeant! On Saturday we saw Liverpool at it’s very best in the glorious sunshine – we wandered round the Albert Docks and Magritte at the Tate, then took a walk to the Museum of Liverpool (which is great) and even had a drink by Liverpool One, completing our day at a restaurant in the Albert Dock. Now I’m looking forward to our next visit!
