About this deal

After they released a self-titled album in 1987, McCulloch left the band and was replaced by singer Noel Burke. In 1989, de Freitas was killed in a motorcycle accident. After working together as Electrafixion, McCulloch and Sergeant regrouped with Pattinson in 1997 and returned as Echo & the Bunnymen, before Pattinson's departure in 1998. The band has done some touring and released several albums since the late 1990s to varying degrees of success. [8] History [ edit ] Early years [ edit ]

Sergeant himself said: “We wanted classic sounds, sounds nobody else could get. I played guitar with a pair of scissors at one point, and I kind of banned cymbals.” Children Of Nuggets : Original Artyfacts From The Second Psychedelic Era 1976-1996 V.A CD1 - CD2 (1) From Will Sergeant’s point of view, it was a trip to Russia “that fed into The Killing Moon”. He and Les Pattinson returned home inspired by balalaika bands, hence the “rumbling, mandolin-style bass thing” you can hear.In 1994, McCulloch and Sergeant began working together again under the name Electrafixion; [13] in 1997 Pattinson rejoined the duo, meaning the three surviving members of the original Bunnymen line-up were now working together again. Rather than continue as Electrafixion, the trio resurrected the Echo & the Bunnymen name and released the album Evergreen (1997), which reached the UK Top 10.

The Liverpool scene at the interface of the 70s and 80s was the proving ground for a trio of singers that are among the most mercurial ever to emerge from the Merseyside metropolis. Ian McCulloch, Julian Cope and Pete Wylie actually started out together as The Crucial Three in 1977, before Wylie quit (going on to The Mighty Wah!) and McCulloch and Cope went on to form A Shallow Madness, an early incarnation of The Teardrop Explodes. Ironically, Echo & the Bunnymen (frequently referred to as “the grey album”, though McCulloch prefers “the ‘loss of grey matter’ album”) gave them their biggest success in America. But Mac wasn’t alone in wondering, “Where was the Bunnymen we all loved?”

The band were said to be worthy winners as they have done much to promote the Mersey music scene. [33] In a later interview for Magnet magazine, McCulloch said "It validates everything that we've tried to achieve—cool, great timeless music. It's not like an inspiration award affecting the past, it's affecting the current music." [34] a b Salewicz, Chris (22 November 1980). "Echo & The Bunnymen: Welcome To The Bunnyhouse". NME. ISSN 0028-6362. Crocodiles" is the debut album from Echo and the Bunnymen with two songs, "Pictures on My Wall" and "Rescue," on the album previously released as singles. This is quite an album. The music is described as post-punk and neo-psychdelic with imagery of darkness and sorrowfullness. Yes, that's all there. To me, the sound is sort of similar to Joy Division's "Closer" and Gang of Four. The band includes Ian McCulloch (singer), Will Sergeant (guitars), Les Pattinson (bass) and drummer Pete de Freitas whom they added after they signed to a label and were encouraged to add a drummer. One of the first things you notice is how prominent each of the band members are. They all make major to contributions to the songs and album as a whole. McCulloch's lyrics are dark and appear very personal. Given the imagery and personal nature leaves a lot of these songs open for interpretation. The lyrics and music match perfectly creating a great dark and somewhat haunting mood.

In a 20 April 2008 interview with the Sunday Mail, Ian McCulloch announced The Fountain as the title of the new Echo & the Bunnymen album with producers John McLaughlin and Simon Perry, [37] which was originally due to be released in 2008 but was finally released on 12 October 2009. [38] " Think I Need It Too", the first single from the album, was released on 28 September 2009. After two more unsuccessful singles, which were released independently, the Bunnymen disbanded in 1993. Crocodiles is the debut album by the English post-punk band Echo & the Bunnymen. It was released on 18 July 1980 in the United Kingdom and on 17 December 1980 in the United States. The album reached number 17 on the UK Albums Chart. " Pictures on My Wall" and " Rescue" had previously been released as singles.

The band embarked on their first major concert tour between September and December 1980 to promote Crocodiles, supported by London band The Sound, during which they performed their first European concerts in France, The Netherlands and Germany. The end of the Camo tour was followed by a four-month break, mainly dedicated to the preparation and recording of their second LP.Meanwhile, McCulloch released his well-received debut solo album Candleland in September 1989, shortly after de Freitas' death. His follow-up solo album was Mysterio in 1992. Re-released on super high material compact disc on October 22, 2013 in Japan (WEA, WPCR-15277) with a bonus single. It’s John Carpenter’s The Fog! And then McCulloch, beneath a see-sawing lightshade moon, his face alternating between the light and the dark, impish and impossibly gorgeous (those lips), delivers his homily – “ The Killing Moon is more than just a song. It’s a psalm, almost hymnal,” he said in 2015 – remote as a spirit child spinning through the cosmos. John Elsasser (2003). "MAGNET Interview: Ian McCulloch". Magnet. Archived from the original on 17 October 2006 . Retrieved 7 May 2007. However, their plans were thrown into disarray when Pete de Freitas was killed in a motorcycle accident on 14 June 1989. [27] De Freitas was on his way to Liverpool from London to take part in the group's first rehearsal with Burke, when his Ducati motorbike collided with another vehicle on the A51 At Longdon Green in Staffordshire, killing him instantly. He was 27 years old and was survived by his widow and their infant daughter, who was born in 1988.
