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.
