Echo & the Bunnymen

Echo & the Bunnymen are an English post-punk group, formed in Liverpool in 1978. Their original line-up consisted of Ian McCulloch, Will Sergeant and Les Pattinson, supplemented by a drum machine assumed by many to be "Echo", though the band denies this.

I have a complete lossless (flac) audience recording. I also have a radio recording of tracks 05 – 10 and some more on a tape somewhere. If I remember correctly, it’s tracks 04, 14, 18 and 19, but my tapes are about 10,000 miles away so I can’t check. A radio recording of tracks also 05 - 17 exists, approx 60’.

Een fantastisch concert tijdens Pandora's Music Box [1985] in de Doelen van Rotterdam heeft destijds grote indruk op mij gemaakt. Vanaf die tijd ben ik fan en nog steeds luister ik vaak naar hun albums. (gish,
