Siouxsie and the Banshees

Siouxsie and the Banshees



Siouxsie and the Banshees were an English rock band, formed in London in 1976 by vocalist Siouxsie Sioux and bass guitarist Steven Severin. They have exerted a lasting and profound influence across many genres of modern music, including new wave, synth pop, gothic rock, alternative music, shoegazing and trip-hop, and have inspired a wide and diverse range of artists. Initially associated with the English punk rock scene, the band rapidly evolved to create "a form of post-punk discord full of daring rhythmic and sonic experimentation".[1] In 1978, they released their critically acclaimed debut album, The Scream, and built their reputation over the next few years through subsequent releases. With Juju in 1981, the group also became an important influence on the emerging gothic rock scene.[2] They disbanded in 1996, with Siouxsie and drummer Budgie continuing to record music as the Creatures, a second band they had formed in the early 1980s. In 2004, Siouxsie began a solo career.

The Times cited the group as "one of the most audacious and uncompromising musical adventurers of the post-punk era".[1] In 2006, Mojo rated guitarist John McGeoch in their list of "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time" for his work on "Spellbound".[3]
