Echo & the Bunnymen’s music is not just popular in their native United kingdom but is also widely enjoyed in the United States. This is why they have decided to take their latest tour to the US in order to treat the fans to their energetic live performance.
Echo & the Bunnymen: How their journey commenced
The seeds for the formation of Echo & the Bunnymen were planted when Ian McCulloch together with Julian Cope, Paul Simpson and Dave Pickett started a band, A Shallow Madness in 1977. Though the group’s career was short-lived, it nonetheless recorded many songs including, Robert Mitchum, Read It in Books, Spacehopper and You Think It’s Love. McCulloch soon quit the group and joined forces with bass player Les Pattinson and guitarist Will Sergeant to form Echo & the Bunnymen.
In the fall of 1978, Echo & the Bunnymen performed their first show as an opening act for The Teardrop Explodes at the Eric’s Club in Liverpool. Shortly afterwards, the band hit the August Studio to record their debut single, The Pictures on My Wall which climbed the twenty fourth spot on the UK Indie chart and received 3/5 stars from AllMusic.
In 1980, the band came out with their debut studio record, ‘Crocodiles’ which was heavily influenced by post-punk sounds. The record turned the group into stars, bringing them incredible national popularity as it landed at the seventeenth spot on the UK Albums chart. The critics were also amazed by this album as it not only made the NME’s list of the ’50 Greatest Albums of the 1980s’ but was also included in the book, ‘1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die.’ Moreover, it was certified gold in the U.K.
Encouraged by the level of success they received for their debut studio record, Echo & the Bunnymen decided to work on their next studio project with more dedication and the result was, ‘Heaven Up Here.’ It came out in 1981 through Korova and became their first record to debut on the Billboard 200. It was also placed among ‘The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time’ by Rolling Stone and earned them an NME Award for ‘Best Album.’ The record was also preceded by two singles, A Promise and Over the Wall out of which the former reached forty ninth spot on the UK Singles chart.
The group then went on to finish the decade by dropping three more studio LPs, ‘Porcupine,’ ‘Ocean Rain’ and ‘Echo & the Bunnymen.’ The first two records not only achieved gold level sales in the U.K. but also helped them gain a loyal following in the US. ‘Porcupine’ became their highest charting album to date in the United Kingdom, landing at the second spot on the UK Albums chart and also became a critical hit. In 1990, their sixth studio record, ‘Reverberation’ arrived in stores. It featured a different side of them as the album contained tracks influenced by different elements of psychedelic and alternative rock sounds. This was their last studio record before Echo & the Bunnymen disbanded.
However, the love of music reunited the group and they made their comeback with a new album, ‘Evergreen’ in 1997. It was certified silver by the BPI and received 3.5/5 stars from Rolling Stone.
