Siouxsie And The Banshees

Although a broad range of contemporary acts has sampled, covered, or been influenced by Siouxsie And The Banshees—including Savages, Chelsea Wolfe, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, TV On The Radio, DeVotchKa, Santigold, and The Weeknd—there’s still a strong mystique surrounding the hallowed post-punk group. Formed in 1976 within the inner circle of early Sex Pistols fans, Siouxsie Sioux and her band of arcane noisemakers started out crafting spiky post-punk. Before long, though, The Banshees had morphed into a daring, murky-yet-shimmering entity that incorporated elements of goth and psychedelia while transcending both.
