Siouxsie Sioux

The greatest female rock star of our time. Probably won’t make the Rock ‘N Roll Hall of Fame, Maybe you kids have never even heard the Banshees. But I’ll tellin’ ya: Siouxsie Sioux.

Siouxsie and the Banshees - Painted Bird


Are you deep blue

Oh, the skinny guitarist on this vid, it’s Robert Smith. It’s a funny story. He was set to join the Banshees full time, but “Let’s Go to Bed” became an unexpected MTV hit, and the Cure went on … to become even more famous.


Always thought they were a better singles band, found many of their albums patchy.

Some latter era singles:

Siouxsie was/is an absolute force of nature

plus it was really down to her that the defining moment of punk unfolded on British TV

She is great. Only caught her live once, Reading Festival '93, but very pleased to have done so.

Had a MASSIVE crush on her…

Don’t think so, unless it’s had a software upgrade.

wasn’t she a nazi? remember some hoo-ha about this

Probably dabbled in nazi imagery for shock value. That sort of thing was big in the late seventies. You can see in the video bodyinthethames has posted she’s with someone wearing a swastika armband.

She’s a musical icon. Always loved this one…


He was a magician.

‘Juju’ is such a great album. It’s pretty clear to hear it’s influence on Johnny Marr, Jonny Greenwood and even Holy Bible era Manics.

What a great list of musicians to have an influence on. I’m sure you could put Bernard Butler in there too.
