Watching Siouxsie & The Banshees really early on didn’t hold any indication they had it, not to mention her. Really, that early show I saw was pretty nasty. But either you’re the real deal, or you’re not. It’s pretty obvious she was. Talk about someone who just grew exponentially, it was amazing. So many incredible singles, one after the other – for years!
She’s still going strong. Seriously, if you can see her – do it. Legend, plain and simple. I get into these grooves whereby I just spin their singles one after the other. I get so excited about the next one up that sometimes I don’t even let the one playing finish out. Do you know what I mean?

This may be my all time favorite. There are many, but this is so haunting, has never dated, and remains gripping – I’m still picking up little things I never noticed. Other-worldly. You’d think Joe Meek had produced it from the grave.
