Well, if it's not too much work for you, I'd love to have the early stuff. The only stuff I have so far is from the secret heavenuphere file from an unknown origin.

I'm loving what I'm hearing--it's like a missing piece of U2's history come to light. The vocals remind me of Jim Morrison, Bono...and even a slightly tortured shade of Macphisto on Ocean Rain *goosebumps*
Hooray! Most of my online friends are sick of my E&TB wanking, but I can't help myself. I really love them. Wonderful post-punk. Nothing like getting into an artist's work 21 years after their height...

And I hear you on the "missing piece of U2's history" thing. I always thought that Boy and October were rather original for their time. That was before I heard Crocodiles, Heaven Up Here, and Television's Marquee Moon, all of which were released before U2 did their thing. I think Ian McCulloch (bastard though he is) was almost somewhat justified in slagging off Bono and U2 in their early days. Some of the similarities were striking. Now, there were a lot of major differences between the Bunnymen and U2, of course. U2's early songs, as you know, tended to be a lot more optimistic and suited for mass consumption, while the Bunnymen's tended to be kind of depressing and less radio-friendly. The Edge didn't have that Middle Eastern style that Will Sergeant had on some songs. Bono's hair wasn't nearly as severe as Ian McCulloch's, etc. And by 1984/1985, they were completely different bands - U2 became considerably better and the Bunnymen kind of lost it.

Anyway, enough blabbing:

Crocodiles (1980) - http://www.flickerandfade.org/blah/crocodiles.zip
Porcupine (1983) - http://www.flickerandfade.org/blah/porcupine.zip
Ocean Rain (1984) - http://www.flickerandfade.org/blah/oceanrain.zip


Be sure to check out Going Up, Monkeys, Rescue, Do It Clean (another B-side), The Cutter, Clay, Porcupine, Heads Will Roll, Ripeness (I still think that song was a jab at U2 - the intro, hee), Higher Hell, Silver (what a pop song should be), The Killing Moon ( best E&TB song ever), and My Kingdom. Those are my favourites!

Echo And The Bunnymen - Rescue
Thanks for taking the time to put this together! You're amazing...I just downloaded all of the links. It's so interesting to hear this stuff after reading about them being a big U2 influence. I really like the free flowing, stream-of-consciousness feel of it...I can hear how they've influenced newer bands, such as The Arcade Fire. It's so great when you uncover a band like this, and share it around *he said, googling E & TB and searching band websites*

I think if I were in the band, I'd be very envious of U2, and their success. But, as you say, U2 really went on to carve out their own territory. I think that's been the key to U2: they take the best of what's around them at any given moment and put their own unique stamp on it.
