For the past day or so, Echo & The Bunnymen’s web folk have been uploading a stream of videos — live performances, TV clips, official promos, interviews — to the band’s YouTube channel. There’s much to choose from, but we decided to highlight this clip of the band, joined by Billy Bragg, performing a cover of The Velvet Underground’s “Run Run Run” on the Old Grey Whistle Test’s “Rock Around the Clock” program in 1985. Check out more of the Bunnymen’s video offerings here.
