McCulloch ditches shades to bewitch with his icy magic
SUNGLASSES or no sunglasses? That was the question ahead of ice-cool Scouser Ian McCulloch's solo show.
In hindsight, as odds go McCulloch sashaying on stage without his ever-present sunnies was about as likely as the Chelsea owner going a season without sacking at least one manager.
In town to promote his new long-player, Pro Patria Mori (English translation – It Is Sweet and Right), the 53-year-old – never one to shy away from blowing his own trumpet – has been hailing it as the best material in almost two decades.
He arrived 20 minutes late with fellow Liverpudlian veteran Ian Broudie in tow. They soon made up for it, though, with McCulloch fighting laryngitis to blast out an array of Bunnymen classics in between decent-sounding cuts from his new offering.

Opening appropriately with Rescue, a nostalgic Villiers Terrace, lusty Seven Seas, the majestic Dancing Horses and sublime signature offering The Killing Moon were all greeted with acclaim by a sparse crowd.
