Looking at the title of Echo & The Bunny-men's new album, What Are You Going to Do With Your Life?, you could well ask them the same question. In the mid-1980s, the Bunnies (right), headed by the inimitable Ian McCulloch, were the Bright Young Things of British rock, until they fell out. Then, in 1997, they decided they couldn't live without one another. Now, they are about to release their second album in three years and are embarking on a national tour. The Mac is back; worship him at your peril.
