Video: Echo & The Bunnymen's Ian McCulloch On Arcade Fire Collaboration: "It Was A Thrill"

Echo & The Bunneymen's Ian McCulloch has said that performing with Arcade Fire at their recent gig at London's Earls Court was "a thrill".

In the video, which you can watch above, the singer says that it was "a real thrill" to be asked to perform with the Canadian band when they headlined the first of two nights at London's Earls Court last week (June 6). "They're one of the few things I like in music. Arcade Fire, Jake Bugg and not a lot else. I was made up," he says.

Speaking about Arcade Fire's choice of song to cover, he added: "I was glad they chose 'The Cutter' because 'The Killing Moon' would have been an obvious one."
