专辑介绍:

30年前的英国,在“love will tear us apart again”一般沉痛无助中,Ian Curtis亲手结束了自己的生命,然而诗人的终结并没有扼杀音乐,在Ian Curtis的死亡阴影下,一个又一个足以令后辈们肃然起敬的后朋克乐队开始了他们的旅程。在那一两年里, Bauhaus在4AD下发行了他们的首张专辑In The Flat Field,同门的Modern English和The The 则完成了各自处女作After The Snow和Black And White,而Echo & The Bunnymen也开始他们在后朋克领域的首次尝试。

  Echo & The Bunnymen最初成立于1978年夏天的Liverpool,刚离开无名乐队 Crucial Three不久的Ian McCulloch,也就是乐队后来的主唱,与吉他手Will Sargent相遇,两人完成了乐队最初的几个 demo,那时他们把乐队起名叫做Echo。随着贝司手Les Pattinson的加入,乐队最终命名为Echo & The Bunnymen,并在当年年底进行了乐队的第一次现场演出。

他们的首张单曲 “Pictures On My Wall”于1979年在独立唱片公司Zoo下发行,这首单曲赢得了英国乐坛的广泛关注,也为他们赢得了Sire公司的一纸合约。1980年,Echo & The Bunnymen的首张专辑Crocodiles在Sire旗下发行前,鼓手 Pete de Freitas加入了乐队,从而确立了Echo & The Bunnymen的四人阵容。乐队的第二首单曲Rescue在英国引起了不小的震动,接下来的专辑Crocodiles成绩不俗,顺利进入英国Top 20,随后乐队开始了在英国和美洲的巡演。值得一提的是,由独立公司 Zoo的组建者Bill Drummond担任制作的这张Crocodiles使得Echo & The Bunnymen成为当时新迷幻(neo-psychedelic)的领头乐队,并使其以在后朋克运动中的独特创新风格率先从一众英伦乐队中脱颖而出,将后朋克的影响力从不列颠扩及全球。

  1981年5月,在发行一周内就进入Top 40的EP “Shine So Hard”之后,Echo & The Bunnymen趁热出版了第二张专辑Heaven Up Here。专辑充满了粗糙的阴暗的激情,随音乐缓慢侵入人内心, Ian McCulloch 以一种近乎临界点的绝望情感演绎了单曲A Promise。Heaven Up Here在排行榜上的成绩直入英国 Top 10,同时也在挑剔的乐评人中赢得赞誉,Echo & The Bunnymen的名字由此传遍了欧洲。接下来的1983年专辑 Porcupine和84年专辑Ocean Rain在打入英国排行榜的同时还进入了美国市场,Ocean Rain中诞生了乐队的代表作 Seven Seas。

  1985 年,Echo & The Bunnymen发行了精选辑 Songs to Learn and Sing。同名的专辑完成于1987年,并一路杀入英国榜,最终名列第四,其中Ian McCulloch翻唱了 The Doors的名作People Are Strange,吉他手Sargent将synth-pop中的细腻敏感融入了新迷幻中,在 McCulloch胜似Jim Morrison般幽暗阴郁的唱腔中,Echo & The Bunnymen以摇滚史上最成功的翻唱作品完成了对The Doors的致敬。之后的1988年,主唱McCulloch离开乐队决定单飞,Echo & The Bunnymen分裂的噩梦接踵而来,26岁的鼓手Pete de Freitas在McCulloch离开的第二年里死于意外车祸。不过,余下的乐队成员顶住压力,邀请客座主唱 Noel Burke完成了乐队正式解散前的最后一张专辑Reverberation。1990年底,Echo & The Bunnymen结束了它12年的历史。

  在成功发行了两张个人专辑之后,McCulloch与Sargent于1994年复合,组建乐队 Electrafixion。Electrafixion并不受人欢迎,只出版了一张专辑。随着贝司手Les Pattinson的回归,三位post- punk先锋萌发了重组Echo & The Bunnymen的想法。1997年,Echo & The Bunnymen回来了,鼓手Michael Lee和键盘手Adam Peters临时加入。新专辑Evergreen的唱片封套上,三位乐队成员一色的短发,黑衣,墨镜,苍白消瘦的脸上萦绕着某种幽暗怪异以至神经质的神色。专辑Evergreen并非是Echo & The Bunnymen原有风格的简单重复,它的旋律更加动听,鼓击也一扫当年的阴沉,专辑的弦乐部分则由伦敦城市交响乐团完成。Echo & The Bunnymen重拾十年前的吉他迷幻手法 ——这正是后来被Ride等众多英国乐队继承的风格。然而从骨子里透出的那种抑郁悲凉的气息,始终隐隐散现于McCulloch的声音里。


Echo & the Bunnymen's dark, swirling fusion of gloomy post-punk and Doors-inspired psychedelia brought the group a handful of British hits in the early '80s, while attracting a cult following in the United States. The Bunnymen grew out of the Crucial Three, a late-'70s trio featuring vocalist Ian McCulloch, Pete Wylie, and Julian Cope. Cope and Wylie left the group by the end of 1977, forming the Teardrop Explodes and Wah!, respectively. McCulloch met guitarist Will Sergeant in the summer of 1978 and the pair began recording demos with a drum machine that the duo called "Echo." Adding bassist Les Pattinson, the band made its live debut at the Liverpool club Eric's at the end of 1978, calling itself Echo & the Bunnymen.

In March of 1979, the group released its first single, "Pictures on My Wall"/"Read It in Books," on the local Zoo record label. The single and their popular live performances led to a contract with Korova. After signing the contract, the group discarded the drum machine, adding drummer Pete de Freitas. Released in the summer of 1980, their debut album, Crocodiles, reached number 17 on the U.K. charts. Shine So Hard, an EP released in the fall, became their first record to crack the U.K. Top 40. With the more ambitious and atmospheric Heaven Up Here (1981), the group began to gain momentum, thanks to positive reviews; it became their first U.K. Top Ten album. Two years later, Porcupine appeared, becoming the band's biggest hit (peaking at number two on the U.K. charts) and launching the Top Ten single "The Cutter."

"The Killing Moon" became the group's second Top Ten hit at the beginning of 1984, yet its follow-up, "Silver," didn't make it past number 30 when it was released in May. Ocean Rain was released that same month to great critical acclaim; peaking at number four in Britain, the record became the Bunnymen's first album to chart in the U.S. Top 100. The following year was a quiet one for the band as they released only one new song, "Bring on the Dancing Horses," which was included on the compilation Songs to Learn & Sing. De Freitas left the band at the start of 1986 and was replaced by former Haircut 100 drummer Mark Fox; by September, de Freitas rejoined the group.

Echo & the Bunnymen returned with new material in the summer of 1987, releasing the single "The Game" and a self-titled album. Echo & the Bunnymen became their biggest American hit, peaking at number 51; it was a success in England as well, reaching number four. However, the album indicated that the group was in a musical holding pattern. At the end of 1988, McCulloch left the band to pursue a solo career; the rest of the band decided to continue without the singer. Tragedy hit the band in the summer of 1989 when de Freitas was killed in an auto accident. McCulloch released his first solo album, Candleland, in the fall of 1989; it peaked at number 18 in the U.K. and number 159 in the U.S. Echo & the Bunnymen released Reverberation, their first album recorded without McCulloch, in 1990; it failed to make the charts. McCulloch released his second solo album, Mysterio, in 1992. Two years later, McCulloch and Sergeant formed Electrafixion, releasing their first album in 1995. In 1997, the duo re-teamed with Pattinson to re-form Echo & the Bunnymen, issuing the LP Evergreen. Two years later, they returned with What Are You Going to Do with Your Life?

The new millennium brought Echo & the Bunnymen back to the basics. The British press touted the band's storybook flair found on 1983's Ocean Rain and figured such spark would be found on their ninth album, Flowers. Issued in spring 2001, it reflected McCulloch's dark breezy vocals and Sergeant's signature hooks. Live in Liverpool, a concert disc capturing the band's two gigs at Liverpool of Performing Arts while on tour in support of Flowers, followed a year later. For 2005's Siberia, McCulloch and Sergeant joined producer Hugh Jones for the band's most classic effort since their 1997 comeback. A second proper live album, 2006's Me, I'm All Smiles, captured the Bunnymen's gig at Shepherds Bush Empire while on tour in support of Siberia.
