I Got Lost Inside It All

After escaping The Bunnymen Ian McCulloch released his solo album Candleland. It led with this single, a perfectly formed little song with typically McCulloch lyrics. In truth it also sounds like the last blast of the old days of the mid 80s, before 1989 turned into something else for fans of guitar bands. Still, it sounds pretty good today, twenty three years on. Yep- twenty three.

Proud To Fall

I can't remember if it was a Proud to Fall b-side or Faith & Healing b-side, but my favorite McCulloch solo track is Rocket Ship. It's fantastic and I can't help but wonder what it would have sounded like if it had been a Gil Norton produced Bunnymen track.
