ON SHOOTING ECHO AND THE BUNNYMEN FOR THE LP PORCUPINE
“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.”
