Siouxsie and the Banshees- The Scream

Siouxsie and the Banshees- The Scream

19.99

Remastered reissue of Siouxsie and the Banshees' debut LP The Screamfrom 1978. Despite evolving from a group of Sex Pistols fans, Siouxsie and the Banshees eschewed the cliches of punk, offering instead an austere and bleak music. Bassist Steve Severin and drummer Kenny Morris provide simple, teutonic-style patterns over which Siouxsie Sioux wails in the manner of former velvet underground chanteuse Nico. Unremitting original songs are joined by a version of the Beatles Helter Skelter, which the Banshees interpret with the full knowledge of its inspiration for murderer Charles Manson. The Scream is an apt title for such desolate music.


LP - Remastered from the original ¼” tapes and cut at half speed at Abbey Road studios, London. Both artwork and audio have personally been overseen and orchestrated by Siouxsie Sioux and Steven Severin.
