Feature Artist Friday - Siouxsie & the Banshees
Formed in 1976, Siouxsie and the Banshees is a British rock band led by singer Siouxsie Sioux and Steven Severin. They formed in the wake of the punk scene and soon became one of the the major bands in the post-punk movement. They have had an influence on groups such as The Cure, Tricky and LCD Soundsystem. Today they have a cult following in the goth scene.
Siouxsie with her husband Budgie also recorded as the Creatures
I remember seeing them at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee at the students union. It was a great show. Siouxsie even clobbered an audience member in the head with a microphone for throwing insults at them. That was awesome. I hate people who go to shows and complain about everything.
