I'd love to hear KC's version of Shake It Aff by Taylor Swift...and Blinding Lights by The Weeknd is another banger that would be an interesting take, I imagine:

Thanks to Malcolm Middleton, via Twitter, I had to rake through all my 60s/70s/80s 7"s earlier the night, to try and find my copy of Aces High by Iron Maiden, which wisnae there, alas.

Found some other belters though, things I could easily hear rendered via the medium of KC:

Japan - Ghosts: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7zzLU1ato2w

Thomas Dolby - I Scare Myself: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jUHYLBxmUEw

Berlin - You Don't Know: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A6E4GOAI2t4

Amanda Palmer - Grown Man Cry: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pC4p1Vy_Rd4 (...from the 2010s, but well 80s)

David Soul - Dinnae Gie Up Oan Us: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PbjFMq3uDsU

Billy Ocean (aka Lando Calrissian (if ye watch the vid)) - Loverboy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tyrowWnlNnQ

Jon & Vangelis (though can appreciate why ye might no wanna go there) - I'll Find My Way Home: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rKqLAVyRaXw

The Jamms - It's Grim Up North: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=20XLWEjN9eI ...might need an East Neuk tweak, tho :)

Jane Wiedlin - Rush Hour: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eAxScPP7CUk

Yes - Owner Of A Lonely Heart: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SVOuYquXuuc

You're on the money, Leckers, with a Simon & Garfunkel song. But I think this is the one, cause as we all know, Kenny is a "kicking the cobblestones" kinda guy  ;D

also...
'Rope' by It's Immaterial - I can imagine it as a real cajun acccordion/fiddle footstomper.

and (in his current electrospook drone/loop guise) I reckon KC could have a cracking stab at 'It's Getting Late In The Evening' by Talk Talk.

Des Lawson and I worked this song up for one of the ENH Thursday night freebies ... then bottled it.

 Awwww, Man!

     I'm sure it would've been great. Unless Des got an ill-timed fit of the giggles halfway through...

i’ll find my way hone - please nut.
that’s up there with come on eileen
as a chalkboard scraper for me.

if we’re sticking to the 80s i’d much
rather hear kc’s attempt at some cure.
something like ‘secrets’ from seventeen
seconds or a scuzzy slowed down ‘primary’
from faith would be amazing. sweeping
electro versions mind.
