I am thinking there is probably posts about this band in the past. So I liked them alot when I was a kid, and they kind of fell off my music radar
with one exception.
So years ago my wife (art teacher) made me go with her to see a German Art thing at the Saint Louis Art Museum (About 20 years ago?). It was nice I
suppose but also viewing the art was Siouxsie and I think her husband which was also her longtime bandmate drummer.
Whatever, I was kind of surprised how insanely pretty she was. Either way, none of this matters...
Today I was bored working and went to get a sandwich, decided to pull a cd from my collection instead of being irritated by the radio, satellite or
Selected Juju by Siouxsie and the Banshees
My fav from that cd is so vastly darker than I ever knew when I looked things up:
From the same youtube summary:
"Haunting track from the 'Juju' LP (June 1981), featuring spine-tingling guitar by the late John McGeoch. The song was inspired by the crimes of
British serial killer Peter Sutcliffe, dubbed the Yorkshire Ripper, who murdered 13 women in the late 1970s/early 1980s. He was captured in January
1981, during the making of the album."
Sad that there are such things that entertain us...
