Echo And The Bunnymen - Scissors In The Sand

Label: Select Label
Format: CDS
Enjoyable new single from Echo and the Bunnymen, the title songs of which was one the highlight tracks from their last album 'Siberia'


'Scissors in the Sand' will be possibly the last single from Echo and the Bunnymen for a while as they have now left Cooking Vinyl, their label. A highlight from their last album 'Siberia', it is a great rocking number, which the Bunnymen crowd bop along to from the first notes until the last. Sadly this is an edit and fades out to soon. 'In the Margins (Tiscali Session)' is a live version of their first single from 'Siberia', their album from last year. It is well delivered for the ageing Bunnymen crowd. The single is then topped off with a live reading from 2005's Reading Festival of their early single 'Villiers Terrace', which incorporates 'Summer Wind' and the Doors 'Roadhouse Blues'. It is absolutely lovely.

1 Scissors In The Sand (Radio Edit)

Maligned latest album from Echo and the Bunnymen, which despite unimpressing much of the group's hardcore fan base, is very much a grower
