Echo & The Bunnymen – Porcupine

Only 1 left in stock

$22.00

Limited vinyl LP repressing of this 1983 album from the Liverpudlian quartet. Porcupine is Echo & the Bunnymen’s most profound and personal album from their early period. Weathering band turmoil, rejections from their record company and spans of songwriting drought, the group emerged with a passionate and compelling set of songs described by vocalist Ian McCulloch as ‘coming to terms with the opposites in me.’

While the album includes both ‘The Back of Love’ and ‘The Cutter’ (two of their most upbeat and successful singles), most of the material was fairly introverted and autobiographical. Unfortunately suffering negative reviews upon release (including a misguided hate-piece in the NME), Porcupine has since become a gold standard for both the band and British underground Rock from the ’80s. It’s also simultaneously their most retro album and their most forward-looking. The production is full of guitar effects that must have set the mind of Kevin Shields onto the path to My Bloody Valentine’s own masterpiece, Loveless.
