429 – Echo & The Bunnymen – The Killing Moon (1984)
Written by Will Sergeant, Ian McCulloch, Les Pattinson, Pete de Freitas
Produced by The Bunnymen
Korova

Will Sergeant’s odd acoustic opening, the cimematically sweeping orchestral embellishments and Mac’s overtly dramatic vocal all lead to a dark, brooding post punk epic that is as contemplative as it is commercially appealing.
