 10 Rare, Echo & The Bunnymen Live Performances From The 1980s

Echo & The Bunnymen, one of Liverpool’s finest exports, exploded onto the 80s music scene with their dark, moody, Doors-inspired psychedelic beats. Orchestrated by enigmatic frontman Ian McCulloch, the band would be propelled from cult status to mainstream success with a string of memorable hits including The Cutter, Never Stop and The Killing Moon. During the 80s McCulloch, Sergeant, Pattinson, and de Freitas would release a quintuple of classic studio albums. Their 1980 debut album Crocodiles was soon followed by Heaven Up Here, Porcupine, Ocean Rain and in 1987 a self-titled release, their fifth and final studio album of the decade. McCulloch quit the band in 1988 and sadly in 1989 drummer, Pete de Freitas was killed in a motorcycle accident at the age of 27.

In 1994, McCulloch and Sergeant began working together again under the name Electrafixion, in 1997 Pattinson rejoined the duo, meaning the three original members of the Bunnymen were now working together again. Rather than continue as Electrafixion, the trio reverted back to Echo & the Bunnymen and released the album Evergreen.
