Show Post: In House #1503

Whether they like it or not, Echo & the Bunnymen will probably always be thought of as an "eighties" band, having grown out of a milieu that included and/or includes acts like the Psychedelic Furs, New Order, and The Cure, among others. Interestingly, many of those bands have of late been challenging that label by enjoying an unexpected renaissance, having either reformed or risen from relative post-80's obscurity. Echo & the Bunnymen, now down to just two original members: Ian McCulloch & Will Sergeant, continue their own re-emergence with their fourth studio album since their 1997 comeback, entitled Siberia. The sound is vintage Bunnymen, with McCulloch's dark velvet vocals and Sergeant's hooks coming together to recall past releases like Crocodiles and Ocean Rain. The band sets out on the west coast leg of its latest U.S. tour tonight at the Big Easy in Boise.

In House #1503.
Airdate: 11/30/05
