One of the more popular, yet still sadly underrated bands of the post punk set. Their debut LP, Crocodiles, is a must have for anyone even pretending to be into Joy Division, The Cure, or any of the darker side of alternative. The whole album is a tour de force of quality musicianship, true emotion and edge - as are their next 4 full lengths in their own right. These guys were way ahead of their time and were excellent live
There’s a new Bunnymen album slated for the end of 2013, says singer Ian McCulloch. He and long-time sparring partner Will Sergeant are heading back into the studio in the summer to record the band’s twelfth album, their first since 2009’s The Fountain. I’m just trying to get a start before I get together with Will," the singer says. It’s worked the same way for a long time - since the split, and with Pete and Les not being around.
