About the book: 'Scenic Wye Valley isn't the typical place for a rock story to begin, but when Echo & the Bunnymen hit the studio to record their ground-breaking debut album, Crocodiles, it was anything but ordinary. The album was the making of the band - cultivating a cult following which would soon evolve into staggering mainstream success. Their lives would never be the same again.

In Echoes, legendary guitarist and founding member of Echo & the Bunnymen, Will Sergeant, recounts the band's whirlwind rise to stardom with his trademark wryness and intelligence. Sharing never-before-told anecdotes - including the heady Rockfield Studio sessions and touring across the US, playing sold-out shows at Whisky a Go Go and experiencing the iconic New York club scene from dusk 'til dawn - and accompanied by snapshots of the cultural, social and political scene at the time, this is a memoir to remember.'

'The early 1980s when I was teenager were hard times under Thatcherite rule. The Bunnymen's music made it bearable for me and Will's guitar playing was - and still is - central to band's unique sound. There was so much appalling sh*te around on the radio so you had to dig around for the good stuff, but the Bunnymen's music was really successful and always brilliant, which was so rare then. Can't wait to get my mind into the new book - the last one was absolutely boss!' - Richard Hawley
