From the suburbs they came, as followers of the Sex Pistols not even Siouxsie or Severin could have guessed that their "ragdoll dance" would have lasted nearly 20 years.
The Siouxsie & The Banshees biography is a must read for anyone who followed the band,a band that reckoned they'd only last one gig and go off into obscurity.
If you're looking for a book of photos to titillate, forget it, this book is more about hard facts than glossy pictures!
It truely follows the highs & lows of a band who should never have been labled Punk & most certainly were never Goth'.From the headines of the early days to the rangles that helped end it all.
The book is inspirational in that Siouxsie & Severin had never picked up a mic' or bass up until that fateful night in the 100 club,yet they progressed,proved and outlived most bands of their time.
And as a women Siouxsie most certainly proved that you can succeed in a male orientated enviornment.
This is the book that I've waited 20 years for & the wait was worth it.Prepare to be amazed and even shocked as you enter the world that was Siouxsie and the Banshees.
