Echo & the Bunnymen

Not quite as famous as their fellow Liverpudlian who came to town last weekend, Echo & the Bunnymen also went nine years between local gigs. The big-haired, pouty-lipped darlings of MTV’s “120 Minutes” and the “Pretty in Pink” soundtrack (with “Bring on the Dancing Horses”) have a new throwback-sounding album, “Meteorites.” Brit-cocky frontman Ian McCulloch and guitarist Will Sergeant are the remaining original members, a sort of poor man’s Bono and the Edge who nonetheless share a rich legacy.
