‘The Cutter’ by ECHO & THE BUNNYMEN

echocutter2

ECHO & THE BUNNYMEN is one of my all time favourite bands and one of the most influential post punk bands of the eighties and still playing tremendous live shows with key founders Ian McCulloch and Will Sergeant. Here is their 1983 monumental score THE CUTTER with those spectacular Eastern sounding, psychedelic strings from their third album PORCUPINE . A superb masterstroke to split Blue Mondays right in the middle…

Who’s on the seventh floor
Brewing alternatives
What’s in the bottom drawer
Waiting for things to give

Spare us the cutter
Spare us the cutter
Couldn’t cut the
Mustard

Conquering myself until
I see another hurdle approaching
Say we can, say we will
Not just another drop in the ocean

Come to the free for all
With cello-tape and knives
Some of us six feet tall
We will escape our lies

Spare us the cutter
Spare us the cutter
Couldn’t cut the
M-m-mustard

Conquering myself until
I see another hurdle approaching
Say we can, say we will
Not just another drop in the ocean

Am I the happy loss
Will I still recoil
When the skin is lost
Am I the worthy cross
Will I still be soiled
When the dirt is off

Conquering myself until
I see another hurdle approaching
Say we can, say we will
Not just another drop in the ocean

Watch the fingers close
When the hands are cold

Am I the happy loss
Will I still recoil
When the skin is lost
Am I the worthy cross
Will I still be soiled
When the dirt is off

Am I the happy loss
Will I still be soiled
When the dirt is off
