Echo & the Bunnymen is the fifth studio album by the English post-punk band Echo & the Bunnymen, their last with drummer Pete de Freitas, who died in 1989 in a motorcycle accident, aged 27. The album was produced by Laurie Latham who recorded the album in Germany, Belgium, London and Liverpool; this followed an aborted attempt at recording the album without de Freitas and with producer Gil Norton.

The Bunnymen hit the ground running, and their debut album is a stunning statement of purpose, with McCulloch already in full dramatic swing and the band at their most straightforward- any band that uses as much reverb as this one is hard to label "raw," but "Pride" and "Do It Clean" nonetheless hit hard, and "Rescue", with Sergeant's massive opening

Echo & the Bunnymen are a British Post-punk band formed in Liverpool in 1978. The original line-up consisted of Ian McCulloch (of The Crucial Three), Will Sergeant and Les Pattinson. There are many stories, probably apocryphal, that the quartet was completed by a drum machine known as "Echo". By the time of their debut album, 1980's Crocodiles - a moderate UK hit - the drum machine had been replaced by Pete de Freitas. Their next, the Heaven Up Here, reached the Top Ten in 1981, as did 1983's Porcupine and '84's Ocean Rain.
My initial reaction to the news that Echo & the Bunnymen were releasing a new album was a rather benign one, along the lines of, Oh, they’re still doing stuff? I didn’t swell with anticipation, wondering if this latest collection would render itself worthy of being slated next to the group’s classic period, nor did I cringe that a once inspired group was desperately clinging to any hope of contemporary relevancy. Like many who hold close the group’s first five albums, I just hoped that it sounded like Echo & the Bunnymen
Thirty years ago Eric's was closed down following a police raid during a Psychedelic Furs gig; but not for good. The concert is in two halves, the first, a hits set and then, the album we're all in attendance to hear. Immediately, however, alarm bells begin to sound and it isn't because of the band. Something else that he does not like. This diverse monologue will at various points in the evening cover allotments, how Glasgow Barrowlands saved his life, how Geordies sound like knobheads and how he nearly got expelled from school for setting his hair on fire. And some of it will be conducted in a Scottish accent.

On July 6th, 1987 Echo & The Bunnymen released their 1987 self-titled album, a record which followed 1984’s highly successful Ocean Rain. The Bunnymen fifth studio album, which was several years in the making, was the last to feature the band’s original lineup of Ian McCulloch, Will Sergeant, Les Pattinson, and drummer Pete de Freitas, who would pass away two years later from a motorcycle accident. Since de Freitas was integral to the band’s sound, attempts to find a replacement were unsuccessful, and by late 1986 de Freitas was brought back into the band. While making the album, the band recorded a version of The Doors’ 1967 single People Are Strange for the soundtrack of the 1987 film The Lost Boys. Ray Manzarek, the former keyboard player with the Doors, was brought in to provide keys on the song.
