As you've probably surmised from Neils review, if you're an existing fan and you weren't there on the night, this is going to be a bitter sweet treat.. You'll just have to take the rough with the smooth. Its worth it!

September 2008, end of a year of touring Mantaray and Siouxsie picks Koko for the end of term party..

Excellent venue, good set-up, good band, up for it audience, cracking set-list and Siouxsie looking divine, giving a top performance and obviously having a blast.

What a fantastic night! Captured brilliantly on this slick and polished (but not overly so) DVD.

The main content starts with a dapper Siouxsie heading out to the venue and then straight into the gig itself with her entrance, all sequins and iconic make up as she gently warms up the expectant audience with 'Follow You'. Then off comes the sequinned shroud and oh-baby don't she look good in those cat-suits.. A few flowers from the flower man, a quick quip and BANG, 'About to happen' ups the tempo and gives Koko's main floor a warning of the workout ahead. Deep Joy. Then the ultra recognisable opening jangle of Hong Kong Garden bounces off KoKo's walls for the first time in decades.. The lights come up on a parasol wielding Siouxsie and we are off again. Oh yes. Oh Yes. Oh YES.

And from there on it just gets better and better, a glorious, delirious mix of old and new. Dear Prudence, Israel, Christine, Right Now and a decent portion of JuJu complement the stonking Mantaray numbers.

Siouxsie looks magnificent throughout, sporting a tutu for Christine, swirling, bouncing, high kicking, swathed in black feathers for swansay and of course, those cat suits. Ding-a-*****-dong!

I was fortunate enough to see Siouxsie on this tour in both Wolverhampton and Oxford and was blown away with the quality of what I experienced. I have been checking for details of the release of the Live DVD from the Koko ever since and today it arrived (thanks Amazon!).

This DVD is wonderfully produced and packaged with an insert containing some great shots of Siouxsie on stage. The video and sound quality are great and I now feel like I missed out big time! Siouxsie played so many more tracks at the Koko and there was even an interval!

Watching it tonight, I have just been grinning from ear to ear, no one performs like Siouxsie and she defies her age with those high kicks and splits. The theatrics of her movement on stage is just mesmerising as she brings her music to life and is ably supported by a very together band.

If you liked Siouxsie and the Banshees get this, you will love it.
If you want to know what Punk was like, get this and see this pioneer at work.
If you were there on the Mantaray tour I am certain you have already ordered your copy.
If you are curious and reading this review, get it!

I look forward to watching this all again at the weekend, with the curtains shut, the lights off and the sound cranked up.

As a long time Siouxsie fan I can tell you this is her most consistently excellent commercially available live performance. Here she is in better shape and more energetic than in 1983s Nocturne. Here she is loving every minute and not taking anything for granted. Her new band plays the old Banshee numbers with panache, adding keyboard flourishes and other enhancing effects in a way that you know only people who have loved and listened to the songs over a long period of time could achieve. The new songs are not a cause of sighing and 'oh let her get the latest stuff out the way' but actually hold their own, displaying all the power and brilliant chorus lines of the best Banshee outings. Siouxsie swoops, struts, and high kicks her way across the stage looking totally glamorous in her Emma Peel catsuits, commanding attention with her signature wayward vocals. I was planning on half watching this while reading a book, but instead found myself totally mesmerised by her performance.
The bonus interview is also of interest..love how she only wants to express her most personal concerns through her lyrics and not through the pages of woman's mags...she just flies in the face of all perceived rules of marketing yourself to the public. Also love that she has taken a stand against plastic surgery and this is one beautiful 50-something we are unlikely to see with cheek implants, botoxed brows and a trout pout..hope she continues to resist pressure to turn into the Joker and remains the Cat Woman we all love!!

The only other live DVD I have of Siouxsie and The Banshees is Nocturne and I would recommend that first as it has classic banshee songs and Siouxsie's voice is a lot stronger there as is the music.

However, this performance is a wonderful send off to a great artist, showing that Siouxsie still has a great amount of energy live for a woman of nearly fifty years. The show begins a little shaky, but her voice picks up by the time she reaches Hong Kong Garden.

There are the well known Banshee tracks like Happy House, Israel, Spellbound, Arabian Knights and even Nicotine Stain, from her debut.
All of these are performed well, though there are unfortunately none of her obscure and wonderful B-Sides nor any Creatures songs included here, which would have been a nice inclusion.

As for the Solo Material, it proves that Siouxsie is still capable of being created after so many years. Into A Swan is up there with the best of her music, as is Here Comes That Day. It would have been nice if she had replaced her cover of These Boots Were Made For Walking with Heaven And Alchemy, a stunning piano led ballad that rounds of her solo debut.

I would recommend this for those who are more interested in Siouxsie's latter career and her early hits. However, if you are more of a Creatures fan, your money would be better spent of Dreamshow and if you really like early Banshee material, go for Nocturne.
