The Days Grow Short When You Reach September

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 to Ian’s version of September Song, while contemplating the fact that yesterday’s Model 500 song was released less than a year later.
