Electrafixion were an alternative rock band, formed by former Echo & the Bunnymen members Ian McCulloch and Will Sergeant in 1994, joined by bass guitarist Leon de Sylva and drummer Tony McGuigan.[1] They released one album, Burned, and four singles and EPs before splitting up in 1996, due to the reformation of the Bunnymen.[1] A posthumous limited edition 7" single, "Baseball Bill" was released in 1997.[1] When touring, the band included Julian Phillips (formerly of Marion) on bass and his brother, George Phillips, on drums.
