Despite being a big fan I only got to see the Bunnymen play live when they toured their "comeback" lp Evergreen. The lead off single Nothing Lasts Forever was a magnificent comeback with Mac's voice at its world weary best. I don't play the rest of the lp much these days as nothing could quite reach the dizzy heights of that single.
The lp was quite a lush affair and I thought that would be replicated in the concert. Instead the guitars were turned up , the dry ice pumped out and what we got was a blisteringly loud rock out as the band galloped through the best of their back catalogue
One of the best tracks was from Porcupine
Heads will Roll - Echo and the Bunnymen
I was tempted to go and see the recent Ocean Rain concerts but having read some of the blog reviews I'm glad I missed them and can remember the ultimate could have been contenders band as they were on that Shepherd's Bush night
