Until a few years ago, I didn't realize that Ian "Echo" McCulloch released a one-off solo 45 prior to his splendid 1989 solo album, Candleland. You'd be amazed at the revelations that transpire when wading through boxes and boxes of used 7"s at Amoeba Records, but I digress. This Ocean Rain-era artifact features two vintage covers: Kurt Weills "September Song," and the traditional folk tune, "Cockles and Mussels," that finds McCulloch getting his croon on as only he can. It was a wise decision for McCulloch to distance himself from the Bunnymen for this rather out-of-character single. It does little to add or detract to his legacy, rather it's more of an eccentric oddity for his most dedicated fans.
