Siouxsie & The Banshees

Often associated with the “goth” scene, Siouxsie & The Banshees emerged from the late 70s punk scene and became fixtures in the post-punk movement. My introduction to Siouxsie & The Banshees came in 1988 with the album “Peepshow”. I instantly fell in love! Almost 20 years later and I’m still enamoured.

“Hong Kong Garden”

“Cities in Dust”

“The Killing Jar”

  1. I only really got into the Banshees earlier this year. I missed out on one helluva band.

  2. cities in dust is a GREAT song 🙂

  3. She’s releasing a solo album in October! Love your musical choices.

  4. I have been meaning to check out her new single. I’m pretty sure it’s on her MySpace page. Must investigate further later! Thanks for commenting Bunnyboy! 🙂

  5. Truly amazing, truly brilliant. I have been in love with their sound for a very long time. Never has disodent cacophony been so aurally pleasing. Though my favorites predate Peep Show but they do an intersting version of Iggy’s The Passenger.

    Siouxsie and the Banshees cofounder, bassist, and songwriter Steven Severin brings his Music for Silents show(s) to New York City, for the only USA appearance on his current circuit, Saturday, October 10th, at Le Poisson Rouge, Greenwich Village. Steven will be performing a live soundtrack for a screening of The Seashell and the Clergyman (1928), a French silent-era movie, popularly considered to be the first surrealist film ever made. If this show sells out, Steven will perform in accompaniment with The Trials of Doctor Caligari on the following night, Sunday, October 11th.

  7. Don’t know if you’ve already heard, but Bertie Blackman recently released her cover of “Peeka-boo,” by Siouxsie and the Banshees. I actually thought she did a pretty good job, one of those rare occasions when the remake is almost as good as the original. Check it out:
