Echo and the Bunnymen’s Will Sergeant and Les Pattinson form new band, Poltergeist
Echo and the Bunnymen guitarist Will Sergeant and bassist Les Pattinson have launched a new project dubbed Poltergeist. The offshoot’s rounded out by The Black Velvets drummer Nick Kilroe and currently they’re looking for donations to fund their debut album, Your Mind Is A Box (Let Us Fill It With Wonder), due out March 4th.
“We create a form of rock music with its toes paddling in the progressive ocean foam of the sixties and seventies and its head in the bone dry air of the present day,” Sergeant explained via Soundcloud. “We want to try and get away from the traditional band format of the line across the stage. There are 12 notes in a scale and we intend to use most of them.”
