Echo & The Bunnymen live on...

Admittedly this is a little bit of nostalgia post for me a child of the 80's. But Echo is back with Siberia and despite the fact that Will and Ian are getting a bit on in age (aren't we all) this record sounds as fresh as anything that the Bunnymen have done. I can't help but feeling that if this was a new band bursting onto the scene right now the kids jaws would be hitting Pergo hard. But that's not the case and this album will be sadly overlooked because it's fresh and minty. The combonation of Will Sergeant's guitars and Ian McCulloch's voice is unmistakable. These guys have never garnered the kind of positive historical retro gazing that has graced other 80's luminaries like The Cure, The Smiths and New Order, but strains Echo & The Bunnymen can be heard IMHO everywhere in today's fashionably hip indie-rock.

Echo & Bunneymen are so under appreciated, especially in America. "Ocean Rain" is still one of the best albums of the 80's. Still a superb live band, saw them 4 times last year.

Not what I was searching for, but none the less and interesting blog here. Thanks for putting it up. I've enjoyed reading alot of the text here. I got you bookmarked for the future, I'll be back.

My site is a bit different, some think it's odd. I guess it's a matter how you look at it. I have a mens male enhancement reviews related site. Most of the articles are on mens male enhancement reviews.
