Been listening to them OBSESSIVELY lately. Peepshow is definitely one of their best albums...

Bump.

Probably my favourite band at the moment. I've had The Scream and Kaleidoscope for a while; with the latter being particularly good, but have only just recently delved further into their back cataloue. Juju and A Kiss in the Dreamhouse are insanely good, and Tinderbox is slowly shuffling its way up my list of favourites too.

They were such a consistently great band, and definitely one of the most sonically interesting to emerge from the post-punk movement, which is a strange thing to say in itself.

Anything that Morrissey approves is probably good. Enough said.

Siousie Sioux? Yesplz.

They're an astounding goth band, and an amazing punk band in general.

They are a top classic goth/punk band I always thought them to be more 80's goth. Don't matter still a good band.I wish I had bought some of their music.

Listened to Juju last night and it wowed me. John McGeoch's guitar work here is brilliant but every band member makes a distinctive contribution aswell, Severin on the bass, Budgie with drums and obviously Siouxsie Sioux. That's the first album of theirs I've listened to and I hope I'll feel the same about the others.

I think The Scream is a great album and also love Join Hands which I remember reading several times, as being regarded as a poor follow-up album to the debut.

Sioux 's voice is now a shadow of what it was , she still looks amazing , unlike Lydon who is a complete parody . I grew up with listening to them from 1978 to the last album . Her voice has that tone that still sends chills over my skin , they called it a day just about correct in my opinion , the UK charts were full of bands that looked as if they had wandered in from the street , the Banshees had nothing left to prove , they were in effect treading audio water.
