Don't they just.
In 1984, with The Bunnymen at the top of their game with Ocean Rain, Ian McCulloch decided to nip off for a solo single, which probably didn't do much for fragile band relationships. Taking Kurt Weill's September Song, a crooner's standard, Ian gave it his best shot. This being the mid 1980s the 12" had a long version to use up those extra five inches. Backcomb what's left of your hair, wrap up in something warm (a raincoat maybe or long black woollen coat), take a stroll around some moody landscape and wallow in Ian's version of September Song, while contemplating the fact that yesterday's Model 500 song was released less than a year later.
