This review is from: Voices On The Air - The Peel Sessions (Audio CD)
Siouxsie and the Banshees, one of the greatest forgotten bands of all time. If you ever listened to their earlier albums and were blown away by their depth, originality, glory - then this is for you. These sessions sound, blaspherically, even better than the album tracks. I honestly expected poxy 'liveish' recordings, a little echo[e]y, a little, well, crap really. But these are just outstanding; it really is like listening to each individual track for the first time. Oh you generations of now, you 'You' children, wallowing in the morass of cover, of intertextual pap; you will never know what it was like to be truly outside, to make music like no-one else on earth. This still is, unmistakably, Siouxsie and the Banshees, and if you need a starting point, stumbling upon them for the first time, forget Once Upon A Time, Twice Upon A Time get this, get this: this is music that just might, in every sense of the world, change your life in this floundering culture of ours typified and tarnished by mediocrity and safely safely pap.
