Echo and the Bunnymen - Porcupine Vinyl LP
Porcupine is Echo & The Bunnymen’s most profound & personal album from their early period. Weathering band turmoil, rejections from their record company & spans of song writing drought, the group emerged with a passionate & compelling set of songs described by vocalist Ian McCulloch as “coming to terms with the opposites in me.” Following their fourth Peel session in early 1982, the band chose Ian Broudie, leader of The Lightning Seeds and co-producer of Echo’s 1980 album Crocodiles, to produce Porcupine. While the album includes both “The Back of Love” & “The Cutter” (two of their most upbeat & successful singles), most of the material was fairly introverted & 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 & British underground rock from the ’80s. It’s also simultaneously their most retro album & 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. In addition to the “The Cutter” & “The Back of Love”, Porcupine includes songs such as “My White Devil,” “Heads Will Roll,” & “Porcupine” that transcend & enlighten to this day. It’s an essential album from one of the most influential bands of the post-punk movement.
