With his sharp prose and dark humour once again spilling across the pages, what follows is a highly entertaining read as he sets out the groups' whirlwind rise to stardom
Hugely entertaining . . . Even without the thrills 'n' spills of the traditional rock narrative, it revealed a very engaging, funny writer: a top-drawer raconteur whose freewheeling style leapt off the page
Echoes is a magical record of [Echo & the Bunnymen's] turquoise days, when everything seemed possible
The early 1980s when I was teenager were hard times under Thatcherite rule. The Bunnymen's music made it bearable for me and Will's guitar playing was - and still is - central to band's unique sound. There was so much appalling sh*te around on the radio so you had to dig around for the good stuff, but the Bunnymen's music was really successful and always brilliant, which was so rare then. Can't wait to get my mind into the new book - the last one was absolutely boss!
Echoes is easy to read and difficult to put down. It captures perfectly the zeitgeist of the tumultuous times it covers and provides insight into possibly one of the world's biggest and best cult bands
