Psychedelic Furs are an obvious choice but the sax is fairly funky punky

Flipper busts it out for the album version of Sex Bomb (with slide whistles too), where's it's not really either deployed in the service of jazz or rock, but as just an irritant. :)

I've not yet got through everything in this thread, but to see someone post a fairly obscure Clock DVA b-side here has just made my day. Absolutely awesome. And Legendary Pink Dots! Are you sure you're not me?

Well, I'm a huge dots fan, and obscure Post-Punk lover...and I 'm a big fan of crazy jazzy styling sax melding with spikey post punk, so it is possible.

I considered the furs, but they have a tendency to be overly cheesy in their use of the sax.

The Cure did a couple – Icing Sugar and Give Me It spring to mind. The sax on Give Me It was pretty mad, but quite buried in the mix.

I'm not convinced it's any good, but it does include some wild sax. As well as wild everything else.

Very true in some ways. No matter how loud, quiet, straightforward or esoteric his music, i agree there is a signature sound that runs through the whole of EK's career.
