One of the most influential British bands in modern history
Atmospheric post-punkers Echo & The Bunnymen formed in Liverpool in the late '70s out of the ashes of The Crucial Three. When founding member Julian Cope left to form Teardrop Explodes, vocalist Ian McCulloch joined up with guitarist Will Sergeant and a drum machine called Echo, resulting in the group’s very first demos. In 1978, they made their official first live appearance as Echo & The Bunnymen at Eric’s in Liverpool with Les Pattinson joining on bass.
