Although Echo & The Bunnymens’ fall U.S. tour still hasn’t been rescheduled after being scuttled over IRS issues, frontman Ian McCulloch did devote a good chunk of time last month to promoting the band’s new album, The Fountain. He performed a few solo concerts and in-store events, and even stopped by the offices of Spin and Rolling Stone magazines to serenade the journos with Bunnymen classics. Here we take a look back at Mac’s one-man promo tour with a clip of him performing “The Killing Moon” live on East Village Radio in New York.
