Just in time for Easter (?), Echo & the Bunneymen's unappreciated hit from '84
Echo & the Bunnymen are one of those English bands, along with The Smiths, that never really hit the singles charts in America, but over time have become recognized as the darlings of the ‘80s indie music scene. They are fondly remembered on the Under the Covers album series, but it's hard to say which Bunnymen song is their most popular. Is it Cutter, Lips Like Sugar, Bring on the Dancing Horses or their 1984 song Killing Moon?
Killing Moon made it to the Top 10 in the UK, but like every Bunnymen single, did not chart in the U.S. Despite the chart snubbing, Killing Moon has been remade countless times and even made its way into a 2012 Audi Super Bowl commercial.
Echo & the Bunnymen, with the core members of singer Ian McCulloch and guitarist Will Sergeant, are still hopping around and this summer will release their new album Meteorites. http://www.bunnymen.com/
