ON SHOOT­ING ECHO AND THE BUN­NY­MEN FOR THE LP POR­CU­PINE

The Herald Magazine - - FOCUS -

“It was just be­fore Christ­mas in Ice­land and re­ally cold. I wore the warm­est cloth­ing I could but there was a mist com­ing off the wa­ter­fall and hit­ting us and it would freeze im­me­di­ately. You could crack your coat – it was all ice.

“And then we couldn’t take off from the air­port. There was a bl­iz­zard. We sat in the air­port shack in can­dle­light get­ting drunk.

“I loved the Bun­ny­men so much. I be­came a good friend of theirs, I think. Ian [McCul­loch, singer] and I fell out a lit­tle bit. I did a shoot for the cover of his al­bum Can­dle­land and he re­jected the whole lot.

“I was used to re­jec­tion but Ian hurt me be­cause he was a friend. It was a bit deeper. It wasn’t some client or some band I didn’t care about. I cared about the Bun­ny­men. I’d grown up with them.”
