“Bands all say they want to be as big as U2, but weirdly no one ever says they’re influenced by them. That’s because there’s nothing there, really. They’ve got good tunes, and you can see that it works on 14-year-olds. But I can’t see mature people or kids who are looking for something, something deep–something that you just know it’s art and it’s going to change your life–caring. For U2 it’s always flag-waving and “Yippee.” That’s a failing of Springsteen as well. I saw him at Glastonbury and it’s like, What are you doing, climbing into the crowd? It’s not a football match, it’s about making someone see the light–a proper inside light.”  – Ian McCullough of Echo and The Bunnymen.

Echo and the Bunnymen played a 45 minute set at the All Points West Festival and in between cigarettes, lead singer Ian McCullough belted out favorites such as “Lips Like Sugar” and “Bring on the Dancing Horses” as well as covers of The Doors’ “Roadhouse Blues,” Lou Reed’s “Walk on the Wild Side” and Wilson Pickett’s “In The Midnight Hour.”
