The long-awaited memoir from Will Sergeant, guitarist and founder member of the influential band Echo and the Bunnymen.
Growing up in Liverpool in the 1960s and '70s, when skinheads, football violence and fear of just about everything was the natural order of things, a young Will Sergeant found the emerging punk scene provided a shimmer of hope amongst a crumbling city still reeling from the destruction of the Second World War.
From school-day horrors and mud flinging fun to nights at Liverpool's punk club, Eric's, where he saw the Sex Pistols, the Ramones, the Clash and Talking Heads, Sergeant was fuelled by and thrived on music. It was this devotion that led to the birth of the Bunnymen, to the days when he and Ian MacCulloch would muck around with reel-to-reel recordings of song ideas in the front room of his parents' council estate flat, and to finding a community - friends, enemies and many in between - with those who would become post-punk royalty from the likes of Dead or Alive, Frankie Goes to Hollywood and the Teardrops Explode to name a few.
It was an uphill struggle to carve their name in the history of Liverpool music, but Echo and the Bunnymen became iconic, with numerous gold records to their names, including 'Lips Like Sugar,' 'The Cutter' and 'The Killing Moon'. By turns wry, obscene and profound, Bunnyman reveals what it was really like to be part of one of the most important British bands of the 1980s.
