For our return to regular releases we thought what better way to start than with part three of Siouxsie and the Banshees. This episode we talk about the last three albums they released before disbanding. This era of the Banshees saw a heavier shift towards pop music with the albums Peepshow (1988), Superstition (1991), and The Rapture (1995). Don’t worry, there’s going to be more content about the goth icons, but just in different way. We hope you enjoy this episode and give these albums a chance.
This week we take a look at Siouxsie and the Banshees’ career through the mid to late eighties, starting with A Kiss in the Dreamhouse and ending with Through the Looking Glass. This is where most people feel the band honed their sound into the distinct Banshees sound that we all know and love. Plenty of hits came from these releases, but do these albums hold up in modern times?
This week we discuss the ever influential Siouxsie and the Banshees. In particular, we review their first four albums, beginning with The Scream and ending Juju. Aside, from being an extremely popular and beloved band associated with the gothic subculture, Siouxsie and the Banshees are personal favorites of ours and we wanted to start from the beginning as many fans may not be familiar with their early work.
