Echo and the Bunnymen Better Than Joy Division?…You Betcha!
The Bunnymen's 1st two releases are absolute dark edged gems, but Bono and U2 got all the media attention, and all the hipsters still worship at the alter of Joy Division. Echo and the Bunnymen were always my favorite goth punks for the reason they played their instruments better than everyone else.
They played harder, faster…better. I think they started to slide after Ocean Rain, but their 1st four albums are essential!
