Echo & The Bunnymen - A Promise
One way to kick of a return to vinyl sharing is to have some Echo & The Bunnymen kick it off. Gladly, I managed to grab this copy of the 'A Promise' ep while on my Christmas trip to the in-laws. Although the local shop in Cobourg Ontario usually has nothing of interest to me, this time I found myself extremely happy I bothered to check it out. This was one of the gems I dug up there, and oddly enough it's one of the few E&TB ep's I didn't own. This has always been one of my favorite tracks by them, even though it kind of sounds like The Cure *gasp!, you know how much I love The Cure (not)* Despite being reminiscent of another band, Ian's vice shines through making this the perfect perfect standout on the album Heaven Up Here. The b-side sounds more like something you'd hear on the Modern English album Mesh & Lace, being slightly more to the goth side of things than you might have remembered...
