In the 1980s Echo and the Bunnymen could be heard in student digs and bedsits nationwide. This hugely influential indie band have survived death, drugs and violent musical differences, splits and make ups and are still going strong, recording and, significantly, playing to devoted audiences worldwide. And they are still fronted by the tousle-headed, shades-sporting, greatcoat wearing, chain-smoking Ian McCulloch, one of the great - and certainly outspoken - personalities in the business. Now Mac's decided the time is right to write a memoir of growing up in Liverpool in the '60s and '70s, of his twin passions of music and football (Liverpool, naturally) and his experiences as lead Bunnyman over 25 years of making music. Outspoken, clever and entertaining, "Silverfish" promises to be the engaging and unorthodox autobiography by one of British music's most iconic individuals.
