Will Sergeant

October 15 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Will Sergeant heads to The Cluny on Friday 15th October to talk about his new book, Bunnyman – easily one of the year’s best music memoirs. Growing up in Liverpool in the 1960s and ’70s – when skinheads, football violence and fear of just about everything was the natural order of things – a young Will Sergeant found the emerging punk scene provided a shimmer of hope amongst a crumbling city still reeling from the destruction of the Second World War. From school-day horrors and mud flinging fun to nights at Liverpool’s punk club, Eric’s, Sergeant was fuelled by and thrived on music. It was this devotion that led to the birth of the Bunnymen, to the days when he and Ian McCulloch would muck around with reel-to-reel recordings of song ideas in the back parlour of his parents’ council estate house, and to finding a community – friends, enemies and many in between – with those who would become post-punk royalty: from the likes of Dead or Alive, Frankie Goes to Hollywood and the Teardrop Explodes. By turns wry, explicit and profound, Bunnyman reveals what it was really like to be part of one of the most important British bands of the 1980s.
