Watch Echo & The Bunnymen’s Ian McCulloch Live at Rolling Stone

When Rob Sheffield caught Echo & the Bunnymen in New York recently, frontman Ian McCulloch in rare form, pausing mid-song to announce, “Quiet down — this is a speech. If I play my cards right it might be a soliloquy. Can anyone spell soliloquy?”

McCulloch didn’t challenge anyone to a spelling contest when he stopped by the Rolling Stone studios to play not one but three stunning songs for us, including the awe-inspiring “The Killing Moon.” Enjoy the Ocean Rain classic above, and watch the Liverpool legend perform “The Fountain” and “Think I Need It Too” — both from this year’s The Fountain, the band’s 11th LP — after the jump.
