This much Ian McCulloch from Echo and the Bunnymen knows.
We were the first band to split up because of culinary differences. If you're in a band, there are some things you just don't do. Will Sergeant [guitar] and Les Pattinson [bass] would have an 'egg butty' just after they came offstage at the Albert Hall. Can you imagine? Towards the end of the band, we had frying pans backstage, camping stoves, the stink of bacon... it was disgusting. [...]
I don't do breakdowns. Everybody has thought some time in their life: 'Could I ever kill myself, if it got that bad?' But I always think: 'Not if there's football on.'
