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 !! Any more fans here on CRF ?
