Echo and the Bunnymen, a group which changed the face of popular music in the 1980s, combine the rawness and venom of New York punk with the moody textures of groups like the Doors and the Velvet Underground. A major force in English post-punk, the band remains an enduring presence on the music scene thanks to Ian McCulloch and Will Sergeant's exceptional song-writing skills and irresistible hooks. TURQUOISE DAYS covers the band's entire career, from its inception in 1978 to its present comeback. It documents in heady detail the forces that gave rise to the group, their early stumbles and successes, and the qualities that have kept them in the musical limelight. An exhaustive critical history and biography, this lavishly illustrated book also includes the complete lyrics of Ian McCulloch's songs; hundreds of quotes from the Bunnymen, their fans, and their critics; and a behind-the-scenes, completely authorised look at the band never-before-imaginable.
