Echo And The Bunnymen Live

The Observatory in Santa Ana, California - July 30, 2014: How does one start a review when you think what you are gonna get (based on past experience) is a bunch of throw back 80's BS…..from a band that had loads of hits back then that don't matter at all today….or so you might think... Let me tell you all I saw a show that came out of nowhere…I was treated to seriously a CBGB's moment at The Observatory Wednesday night the 30th of July.

I have always LOVED Echo And The Bunnymen and about a month ago my wife Stacy surprised me with tickets to see them... Honestly …I kind of thought it to be a date night. (you have to understand…when I see bands I love... I'm in the pit) But as it grew near to the time they came on stage…I have to admit I was stoked and had a really funny feeling I was gonna witness something really really special….I'm not always right but on this occasion I was.

Ian McCulloch was just on fire and now since he has relinquished his guitar responsibilities on stage and left that to his band mates Wil Sergent and Gordie Goudie they almost sound philharmonic. A very full sound and with Ian concentrating solely on vocals they are better than ever. Ian is a rad vocalist and when allowed to just sing the blues…..He Rules!! I was blown away at how they filled that club with that tone.

They played all of their best songs, the cutter, dancing horses, killing moon, seven seas, rescue, never stop…..and I can go on and on and on……And they sounded just perfect…I was flipped out. They even broke into some Lou Reed "Take A Walk On The Wild Side" and The Doors "Break On Through" I was not expecting that…And to see them in great health….loving what they do was just f***in awesome.

They played a lot of new stuff too which also was really good…the new album Meteorites is a great record.. My hat is off to you Bunnymen….I was really stoked to see you lads doing what you do best….and If you are reading this…please please keep doing what you are doing….and…..NEVER STOP!!!
