We remember the best albums of Siouxsie And The Banshees according to the magazine "Fuzz Music"

Taking the stage and performing a first-class improvisation of "Our Father" with Sid Vicious on drums and Steve Severin on bass (the two would later move on to other projects, but that doesn't spoil the story), the Banshees were the foreword in avant-garde rock!

Siouxsie And The Banshees - a selection of the group's best albums

Siouxsie And The Banshees were not exactly a band that grew out of the embers of punk (as many would like to believe it), but rather a band charged with the roaring flames of the first incendiary moments of this genre ... By stepping on stage and performing first-class improvisation "Our Father" with Sid Vicious on drums and Steve Severin on bass (later the two would move on to other projects, but that doesn't spoil the story), the Banshees were the foreword in avant-garde rock! And their vocalist inflaming a huge audience with her presence on stage alone Susie Sue always destined to become a star: bright, eccentric and truly talented - she instantly became an icon of post-punk! Sue has always found ways to separate herself from the rest, step out of the shadows and showcase her talent and charisma to the fullest... Both with and without her band, she has been a consistent and constant pursuit of creative freedom and spreading her message. Despite the fact that the group declared itself in the distant 70s, the work of Siouxsie And The Banshees still carries weight today! Banshees records are in great demand among the modern generation of listeners, and that is why we decided to recall the best of them (and there are 11 of them in total, for a minute)! So: this selection of the best albums groups Siouxsie And The Banshees! We begin...

"Join Hands" (1979)

As a rule, the recording of the second album is a rather responsible and difficult task for the band… However The Banshees showed great promise when they not only presented a quality continuation of their debut, but also filled it with a clearer vision of their further path to Olympus… This time the sound went from insane to measured and thoughtful…

Remarkably, the main inspiration for the album came from the First World War. The group watched reports on the repression and curfew in Iran and for the first time saw a video of people being killed in cold blood… According to Susie, the reality in England was also cruel ... This prompted The Banshees portraying the atrocities of war in a new way and using the Great War as further inspiration... It sounds agonizing and wonderful at the same time.

The Scream (1978)

Inspired by the brutality of punk The Banshees had to add arthouse mysticism to their sound, which significantly increased their role on stage. FROM The Scream they became the leading figures of post-punk overnight!

So Steve Severin on bass The Banshees used his skills to provide a deep rhythm that no other band has been able to reproduce... This will undoubtedly be one of the first moments in the history of post-punk and ahead of many other great musicians of this genre! The Scream still impressive and inspiring to this day...

"A Kiss in the Dreamhouse" (1982)

A Kiss in the Dreamhouse became a foundational moment in the band's legacy... It was the first time that The Banshees abandoned guitars, proving they weren't just "another new wave band". They were a unique band with artistic vision and musical integrity...

The album was a critical and commercial success upon its release! A Kiss in the Dreamhouse became a breathtaking release 1982 years ... And yes: he is still popular.

"Through the Looking Glass" (1987)

It's not often that a cover album can be as well received as Through the Looking Glass 1987 of the year. Filled with famous songs like "You're Lost Little Girl" by The Doors, this record is proof that The Banshees know what good music is and, more importantly, how to make it...

It's amazing how they managed to turn so many different songs into what sounded like an original creation...

Kaleidoscope (1980)

Kaleidoscope was the first album The Banshees, recorded in a new line-up (just a few months before the release of the record John McKay and Kenny Morris left the group without telling anyone ...) “It was like a different group ...” Susie said, thinking about the new members: they came to the places of the “refugees” Budgie and John McGeogh. The album's diversity was something that further shaped the band's legacy. Two singles from LP, "Happy House" and "Christine", proved: being led by Susie Sue, the group can get to any end of the spectrum, you just have to want to! On this album, The Banshees provided ironclad proof of their impending notoriety...

The album itself was, as the name implies, a whirlwind of different themes, fragments of styles and a holistic view of creativity. Today it is still the band's most successful album in the UK (#5 on the charts!)

Peepshow (1988)

To feel the love for this album, just listen to the single "The Killing Jar"! But don't ignore the huge variety offered by this record, the wild creativity and the use of some production techniques... Together, it all explains why The Banshees still so loved today...

The unpredictable orchestrations on the record highlighted the band as avant-garde rock heroes! Not content with the same old methods, the band used elements of jazz and classical music to push the boundaries of the contemporary palette... The Banshees created a fantastic album that not only paved the way for their future, but also presented one of the band's most vibrant soundscapes!

"Juju" (1981)

Becoming one of the central figures in punk rock in the late seventies, by the beginning of the next decade Siouxsie And The Banshees began to move their own way, creating a completely new sound of their own ... So, in 1981 they released a great juju - his fourth studio album, which now represents a big change not only in the sound of The Banshees, but also in the culture of Britain as a whole! The brazen and daring side of punk remained the same, but this time the band was in for something more artistic...

The record is lavishly stuffed with hit tracks, the most obvious of which are "Spellbound" and "Arabian Knights". In addition, the dark territory of The Banshees' new sound is explored in "Voodoo Dolly" and "Night Shift". While Juju was just the band's stepping stone to their glory, many critics considered it "the most influential British album of all time!" And Johnny Marr, guitarist for the indie rock band The Smiths, admitted that John McGeoch's guitar playing had a big influence on his own style...
