For this week’s installment of Vintage Video, we present this 30-minute live set by Echo & The Bunnymen that was filmed Aug. 26, 1982, at Sefton Park in Liverpool and aired on the BBC 2 series “Pop Carnival,” a performance that finds Ian McCulloch squarely between their second (1981’s Heaven Up Here) and third (1983’s Porcupine) albums.
Check out the full video — which captures six of the last seven songs of the band’s set that day — and setlist below, via joeyx666.

“Heads will role” is a personal fav. Thanks for posting this!
EATB is one of my favorite 80’s Alt Rock bands and “Over the Wall” is one of my all-time favorite songs. Love this song, especially how Ian sings it.
