Echo And The Bunnymen

Echo And The Bunnymen




Liverpool indie-rock band Echo & The Bunnymen were formed in 1978 by singer Ian McCulloch, guitarist Will Sergeant and bass player Les Pattinson. Joined by drummer Pete de Freitas, they released their debut album Crocodiles in 1980 and Heaven Up Here in 1981. Both albums were critically acclaimed and saw the band slowly build a reputation towards mainstream popularity. In 1983 they achieved a Top Ten hit in the UK, with "The Cutter", taken from third album Porcupine. Porcupine hit No.2 in the album charts, and was followed by one-off single "Never Stop", and "The Killing Moon", another Top Ten hit. That song has become their signature tune, featuring in films such as Donnie Darko and Grosse Point Blank, and standing out on Echo & The Bunnymen's greatest album, 1984's Ocean Rain.
