Echo & the Bunnymen is the fifth studio album by the English post-punk band Echo & the Bunnymen, their last with drummer Pete de Freitas, who died in 1989 in a motorcycle accident, aged 27. The album was produced by Laurie Latham who recorded the album in Germany, Belgium, London and Liverpool; this followed an aborted attempt at recording the album without de Freitas and with producer Gil Norton.

The Cutter is a compilation album of Echo & the Bunnymen songs, which was released in 1993. All tracks written by Ian McCulloch, Will Sergeant, Les Pattinson and Pete de Freitas except where noted. Paint it Black" (live) (Jagger/Richards) – 3:13. All You Need is Love" (Lennon–McCartney) – 6:43. Read It in Books" (McCulloch, Julian Cope) – 2:32.

The Cutter is the second single released from Echo & the Bunnymen’s 1983 album Porcupine. The song features an Indian raga violin being played by L. Shankar, the famed ethnic musician who’s worked with Peter Gabriel, Frank Zappa, Talking Heads and Lou Reed. He was allegedly brought in by the record company without the band’s knowledge. Lead singer Ian McCulloch has been known to introduce The Cutter in concerts as the second-greatest song ever written. It’s since been covered by artists such as Arcade Fire, Solex and Lagartija Nick

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

To start with, the album material isn't necessarily the best of. While the songs are a just-decent sample of some of the finer moments from the band's glory days, Songs to Learn and Sing and Ballyhoo are both better introductions. Albums covered include Crocodiles, Heaven Up Here, Porcupine, Ocean Rain, and Echo & the Bunnymen. There are classics here to be sure: "The Cutter," "A Promise," and "Ocean Rain" are all glorious slices.

Like many Echo & the Bunnymen lyrics, "The Cutter" is hard to decipher. Lead singer Ian McCulloch did offer some hints in a 1983 interview with the New Musical Express: "'The Cutter' is about three different aspects of this man, The Cutter. I'm six-foot tall, so that's a clue. One of the biggest hits for the band, "The Cutter" was the second single from their album Porcupine. Like most of their early hits, it was quite popular in England (especially in their home turf of Liverpool), but largely ignored in America when it was released. The song did get some attention in the US in 1984 when it when it was included on the EP The Sound of Echo. In a Songfacts interview with guitarist Will Sergeant, he said: "We did a few tours of America where we just playing clubs - the Paradise, and places like that. The Channel in Boston.
