When Was The Last Time You Played This Album?

Echo and the Bunnymen “Echo and the Bunnymen”

Today’c Cool Album of the Day is Echo and the Bunnymen’s, “Echo and the Bunnymen.”

One of my favorites by Ian McCulloch and the boys. My favorite release of 1987.

Features ‘Lips Like Sugar, Bombers Bay, Bedbugs and Ballyhoo’ and ‘ The Game.’

Echo and the Bunnymen are usually considered part of the British Post Punk era. I tend to think of them more of a part of the so called New Romanticism style. New Romanticism, to me, was the sound that evolved from from the Roxy Music and Brian Eno sound. see: Ultravox etc. I like Echo in that group.

But like we’ve said before in this forum. Who cares what group they’re in. The better question is, Are they any damn good?

Echo and the Bunnymen are damn good. That’s why they’re back on tour and that’s why they’re ‘Today’s Cool Album of the Day.’ Oh, yeah…..Happy Birthday Ian.
