SIOUXSIE AND THE BANSHEES

Formed in London UK 1976 , SIOUXSIE AND THE BANSHEES were originally associated with the English punk rock scene, their music evolving to post punk/gothic rock .Signing to Polydor 1978 , the band soon became popular ....The Banshees 1st single " Hong kong garden" was a big hit and Music papers in the UK fell in love with them. Never afraid to experiment with their sounds , they were commercially successful too having charted highly with a string of singles/albums in the 80s.
In 1984 Robert Smith from THE CURE even had a spell with the band on guitar'
Sadly they split in 1996 with singer Siouxsie and drummer "Budgie" continuing to record music as THE CREATURES
SIOUXSIE AND THE BANSHEES left a legacy of inspiring music and have influenced so many. I own copys of their albums and highly recomend them.......what a band !! :bow: Any more fans here on CRF ?

Post-punk masters. They are really cool, their influence on music cannot be understated either.

i never gave Siouxsie & The Banchees the time of day, BECAUSE at one time all my mind registered was people saying they are a punk band. I was/still am not a big fan of punk rock.

Anyway, it’s a good thing I have been going through threads restoring the videos because I actually “listen” to them.

I like the debut album. It’s got a dark gothic vibe I enjoy. Not at all what my mind imagined.
