Echo & The Bunnymen – The Artist
Echo & the Bunnymen are an English rock band formed in Liverpool in 1978. The original line-up consisted of vocalist Ian McCulloch, guitarist Will Sergeant and bassist Les Pattinson, supplemented by a drum machine. By 1980, Pete de Freitas joined as the band’s drummer. Their 1980 debut album, Crocodiles, went into the top 20 of the UK Albums Chart. After releasing their second album, Heaven Up Here, in 1981, the band’s cult status was followed by mainstream success in 1983, when they scored a UK Top 10 hit with “The Cutter”, and the album which the song came from, Porcupine, hit number 2 in the UK.
Bring on The Dancing Horses – The Song
Bring on The Dancing Horses is a single by the British indie rock band, Echo & the Bunnymen which was released in 1985. It was the only single from their 1985 compilation album Songs to Learn & Sing, and was recorded for the John Hughes film Pretty in Pink. It reached number 21 on the UK Singles Chart. Allmusic journalist Stewart Mason said that the layers of synths on the song and Ian McCulloch’s overdubbed vocals on the chorus add to the “psychedelic haze of the track”. Mason wrote: “Bring On the Dancing Horses has a dreamily catchy chorus and a nice melody.
Dancing Horses – The Shape
Modelled into the silhouette of a horse rearing onto its hind legs and kicking. Rearing occurs when a horse “stands up” on its hind legs with the forelegs off the ground. Rearing may be linked to fright, aggression, excitement, disobedience, or pain. It is not uncommon to see stallions rearing in the wild when they fight, while striking at their opponent with their front legs. Mares are generally more likely to kick when acting in aggression, but may rear if they need to strike at a threat in front of them.
