For those of us Siouxsie-philes eager for remastered Banshees albums the wait is over with the release of this splendid deluxe edition of the classic debut album. The sound certainly brings out the magnificent rhythmn section of the original band, especially the drums which was an important element in the Banshees early recordings; just listen to "Mittageisen", "Switch" and "Jigsaw Feeling". The bonus disc is the one which Banshees fans have been waiting for and it doesn't disappoint as it includes early live favourite and previously unreleased "Make Up To Break Up", and the Peel Session(and better) version of "Love In A Void" It's great to hear the early versions of Banshees songs which have an edge which the official versions lack. Included here are two John Peel sessions which are absolutely indispensable. Hong Kong Garden is particularly worthwhile since it is a restrained and rougher version compared to the official release. Also included are four early demos of The Scream album recorded at Pathway studios. These aren't as good as the Peel sessions, the sound is too muddy, but what is of interest is an early version of the single "The Staircase Mystery" which, sound apart, is certainly a rockier take than the lacklustre single release. The bonus disc is really a must have for any Banshees afficianado and fills in the gap between early contract-less Banshees and what was to become their first album proper. Also included are the original singles versions of "Hong Kong Garden" and "The Staircase Mystery." As for the main album itself, it still sounds exceptional and "Mirage" remains one of the great Siouxsie songs, and one in which the bridge between punk and pop was crossed.Read more ›

Whilst Siouxsie was one of the original punks, being part of the "Bromley Contingent" and appearing with the 'Pistols during a TV interview, her band were one of the last from the scene, to be signed, following an intensive and long running "sign the Banshees..." graffitti campaign by disgruntled fans.
Despite having to wait to unleash their music, the ultimate results were not in any way diminished by this lapse of time. In fact, this album is an absolutely groundbreaking collection of music, that went on to influence the whole alternative movement throughout the 80's and 90's.
"The Scream " opens with the slow burning and rolling bass lines of "Pure". An uneasy nightmarish atmosphere, is splintered by fractured high frequency guitar sounds. Initial signs of the tribal beats that became the "Banshees" trade mark are also apparent.
Every one of the 10-tracks on here is a triumph, from the reelings of "Jigsaw Feeling" to the slow overtures of "Overground". Siouxsie chants and barks over the (then) futuristically twisted and bent slant on New Wave - part arthouse and part street culture, The Banshees could almost lay claim to having invented "the loop", evidence of which is found on the repeating guitar phrase on "Metal Postcard".
This album is a piece of history and firm evidence of the effect that the late 70's had on modern music and culture. Play this album today and it is still relevant and timeless.

The debut album by Siouxsie and the Banshees may not have been what the public was expecting after the immediate success of their debut single, 'Hong Kong Garden'. Where HKG was a very catchy, upbeat, and dare I say it..., poppy song, much of The Scream has a tuneless punk/post-punk sound to it. Not to say that it's a bad thing, but nowhere as satisfying as the later albums. It's amazing to hear Siouxsie's early voice was this flat, tuneless shouting and yelping, considering how beautiful it became.

Highlights from the album are the grotesque novelty of 'Carcass', the should-have-been second single, 'Mirage', and the first of several epic tracks The Banshees would produce in the coming years, 'Switch'. The not so good songs are inevitable at this point in the band's young life, so songs like 'Nicotine Stain' and 'Suburban relapse' are easy to pass on future listenings of the album. And while 'Overground' is not a bad song, it pales in comparison to the re-recorded version from the 1984 ep, The Thorn.

The bonus disc is only partially satisfying, mainly due to Siouxsie's interference. Siouxsie seemed to have the veto power to ensure that all of the early Banshees tracks, ('Bad Shape', 'Psychic', 'Scrapheap', etc...) were not included as bonuses, which leaves fans stuck with poor quality third party sources. The one track that received Siouxsie's approval was the classic 'Make Up To Break Up'. This is very catchy and hooky in a sort of punk/pop marriage. This bonus disc also includes the two non-album single releases, 'Hong Kong Garden' and 'The Staircase (Mystery)'. The Peel Sessions have since become redundant with the release of two collections that have come since this deluxe edition.

The remastering on The Scream is very strong.

Aah...this conjures up the great night when John Peel played "The Scream" in its entirely, and shocked those of us who had only just heard the "Hong Kong Garden" with a mighty "What was THAT !!!". However by the time virtually all of "The Scream" appeared in that year's Festive Fifty we had been bent forever to Siouxsie's iron will. This album was the first of many to teach me that sometimes you may not like or understand an album first time, but that sometimes it is you that must change.
I bought the single disc version just there, not knowing about this 2-CD set was on the way. Does the "The Scream" still cut it ? Oh yes...surprisingly fresh and young-sounding and it can still roar. Not everything works, but its best things. "Jigsaw Feeling", "Mirage" and the Banshees take on "Helter Skelter" are still the dogs'.
However, this "Deluxe" edition has missed the odd trick.
It is great to have the Peel Sessions out there again, reminding us of when The Banshees were the most famous unsigned band in the UK way into 1978. But where is the German version of "Mittageisen", even fiercer than the English version, and "Voices", the flip of "Hong Kong Garden", fondly remembered by me for completely baffling my friends, let alone my parents, and much beloved of pub landlords who would keep it on their jukeboxes for years afterwards in order to drive out the punters at closing time. Though they made some great things in later years, especially the singles, they never matched the power of this.
Will I be rushing to buy this set, despite this? Just try and stop me.. Hopefully the liner notes will tell us what became of John McKay and Kenny Morris, who walked out the band after a fight in Aberdeen, never to be seen again...
