EPISODE67 - Talking 80s Music with Martin Hennessy

This week we featured music (samples of their singles, "Over The Wall," "The Game" and "Do It Clean (Live)") from the Music Club Deluxe collection Killing Moon: The Best Of Echo & The Bunnymen. The disc can be purchased through the link. We planned to give away a copy of the band's self-titled 1987 CD to a caller but it just didn't work out (so it'll go back into our goodies stash for a rainy day.)

It was rather interesting while doing some pre-show research that Martin got in contact with Noel Burke (who replaced vocalist Ian McCulloch for the Reverberation album.) Great to hear that his former band, St. Vitus Dance, is releasing a new album and reissuing their debut.
