Product Description

Siouxsie and the Banshees at the BBC is a stunning 84-track, all digitally-remastered, 4 disc hard-back book set of exclusive BBC sessions, live concert tracks and TV performances recorded between 1977–2001 split across 3CDs and a DVD. All tracks were hand picked by the band, including alternative versions of 18 classic hit singles, key session tracks from 1977-1987 and a concert recording from the Apollo Theatre in Oxford in 1985. The set also includes the complete John Peel sessions alongside sessions recorded for Kid Jensen, Richard Skinner and Janice Long. Disc 3 contains highlights from their BBC concert recordings at the Apollo Theatre in Oxford and the Royal Albert Hall in London in 1988, where the band performed a storming set 3 nights in a row to a sold out crowd. Highlights include a breathtaking "Last Beat of My Heart", "Christine" and a rip roaring crowd pleasing end of show version of "Hong Kong Garden". Disc 4, however, is the real gem; a 29 track DVD of the band’s BBC TV performances, features the complete Old Grey Whistle Test broadcasts from 1978, 1982 and 1985, the Something Else performances from 1979 and 1980, the Rock Goes to College broadcast from 1981 and the band’s complete Top of the Pops performances. A fantastic 30 page booklet contains extensive sleeve notes by Paul Morley, interviews with all the band members and a unique and insightful introduction written by Siouxsie.

Format: Audio CD
Having seen The Banshees at the peak of their career two times in Finland during their 1982 Scandinavian tour, which at the same time was the band's live intermission between JuJu, which I still rank, alongside The Scream and A Kiss In The Dreamhouse, on the trilogy of the Banshees's most brightest and innovative musical moments. Especially the 1982 Dave Jensen session with very raw versions of the songs like Cascade or Green Fingers, before the band lost themselves into psychedelic depths with producer Mike Hedges on Dreamhouse, and painted the songs with more Klimtian colours using flowerish and very rich, keyboard- and loop-orientated production colouring the songs which the band composed during their 1982 spring break, to follow up the single Fireworks, which still had the unique 1980-1982 era Banshees's trademark with Steve Severin's pulsating bass, John McGeoch's flangered guitar parts and Budgie's tumultous drumming.

Beside this unique four songs session you will find the 3 CD + DVD box set including all the Banshees's Peel sessions, on which it is verty easy to see, how the band's musical evolution on the Chuck Berry or T Rex -orientated glam/rock riffs of the first ever recorded version of Love In A Void from 1977 to the final echoes of ecstatic Into The Light from spring 1981. The production quality on the 1981 Richard Skinner session is a bit poorer compared to the others, but the raw version both on Arabian Knights and Head Cut are just worth of checking, beside the other pearls. Even with the 1979 Peel session Banshees show their music rooting more on the early 1970's glam or psychedelia than punk rock, with the Edgar Allan Poeishly horror-echoing lyrical alienation no progressive rock band could had ever been able to create.

I was invited by Amazon to write a review for these 3 CDs 1 DVD and have no problem recommending Siouxsie Sue and her gang's work in the studio, on stage and on TV for the BBC.
I had recently heard the re-issues on the original albums, containing many the original versions of tracks on this box set, and the versions here are excellent too. Peel (and others) sessions, Live and an entire Concert make up the CDs , but the real treat, is the DVD , all TOTP Old Grey Whistle test and other TV appearances and a concert filmed by the BBC. The only downside is a picture gallery on the DVD would have been a bonus as well as an interview or possibly the excellent Queens of British Pop series which ran on BBC around the same time as this release, which Siouxsie Sue , rightly , featured extensively.
Just a thought perhaps all the "already paid for" material held by the BBC should be made available.

I was a bit sceptical about this before I ordered it mainly as it seemed expensive for what I incorrectly assumed was a BBC sessions cd. In fact there are 3 music discs, plus a dvd and an excellent essay by Paul Morley. Siouxsie makes a small contribution too. What makes this special? Well the packaging is fantastic - a sturdy hardback book cover; really, really comprehensive sessions spanning the Banshees entire career which is after all, a long one but the favourite for me, is the dvd. Not the usual promo videos nor just the obvious OGWT sessions, but some great hidden gems which I've never seen before, or only remember vaguely from my youth :) (a LONG time ago!!!). I can't recommend this highly enough. It's incredibly comprehensive in all ways and an absolute bargain!!!!

I was really looking forward to getting this set and I was far from dissapointed. The first CD contains already released material, although I hadn't heard them before and it was interesting to see the early songs, particularly Metal Postcard, in a different light. The second and third CDs also contained some live performances, mostly from albums like A Kiss In the Dreamhouse, Tinderbox and Peepshow, with some songs from other albums too. The live songs were particularly enjoyable, especially, Melt! one of my favourate banshee songs. It was nice to hear early gems like Hong Kong Garden performed live too.

My favourite part of the set was undoubetdly the DVD. All the clips except from a couple like Love in a Void and Overground, were in outstanding quality. It is a nice document of performances spanning almost across the banshees entire career, particularly up to the tinderbox era, with only a few clips of the latter material. Despite that, it is a really good watch as it shows how the band grew from their primitive punk sound, to the more theatrical, fairground sound of peepshow.

All in all, one of the best Siouxsie and the Banshee compilations ever.

if youre a banshee fan, then this is a brilliant addition to your collection, worth every penny just for the rock goes to college footage alone!!.
ok so there are a few repeat totp performances, but thats just a minor gripe, its worth listening to just to hear the development of a band from the earliest peel session in 77 through to royal albert hall in 88..buy buy buy
