Echo & the Bunnymen area an English indie rock band from Liverpool, consisting of founding members vocalist and guitar player Ian McCulloch and guitarist Will Sergeant, alongside guitarist Gordy Goudie, bass player Stephen Brannan, who replaced Les Pattinson, keyboard player, Jez Wing, and drummer Nick Kilroe, who replaced Pete De Freitas.
Formed in 1978, their debut album, 'Crocodiles', hit shelves in 1980, hitting #17 in the UK Albums Chart. ‘Heaven Up Here’ was released the following year and performed even better, hitting #10 in the chart. ‘Porcupine’ continued this success reaching #2, and ‘Ocean Rain’ in 1984, hit #4, and spawned the single The Killing Moon.
The band released a self-titled album in 1987, before McCulloch left in 1988 to pursue a solo career. The band re-emerged with a new line-up, featuring Noel Burke as lead singer, Damon Reece on drums and Jake Brockman on keyboards, alongside Sergeant and Pattison and released a further album, ‘Reverberation’ in 1990, before splitting in 1993.
The band reunited in 1997 with McCulloch, Sergeant and Pattinson and released the album, ‘Evergreen’. McCulloch and Sergeant have released a further five albums, including, ‘Meteorites’, in 2014.
