Happy Birthday Siouxsie
Vocal artist Siouxsie Sioux is celebrating a Birthday today May 27th
Siouxsie was the lead singer for Siouxsie and the Banshees
I couldn't find a link back to the pic above as to who or where this pic came from other than it was taken in Amsterdam.
The Band formed in London in the late 70's.
Apparently they released a few singles in the late 70's, I was just a kid at the time so it's cool to learn new trivia.
The first song I remember Siouxsie singing was Dear Prudence. It was released in 1983, it's nice to know that because I never knew I just had a general idea.
I remember my childhood friend had an older sister that would let us borrow her albums to listen to, one of the songs that I used to like that was out prior to Dear Prudence was a song called Spellbound. from the JuJu album.
This is a pic of the album, not my picture and I don't know who to give credit to but Thank You.
It's cool to go down memory lane if anything because it makes me realize just how broad my taste in music is.
I owe it to my mother who loved listening to music, while I was growing up the music was always on and it was always loud. Her taste in music varied a lot but not as much as it varies with me.
The song that brought Siouxsie Sioux recognition to the alternative music scene in the U.S. was Peek-a-Boo in the album Peepshow.
It was 1988 and the Goth scene had already taken over, it was evident. To this day I can still remember the sweet smell of clove cigarettes, black clothing from head to toe and sleek Bob's, it was a good time.
You may or may not recognize the next song.
Kiss Them for Me was their most popular song it was the song that brought them recognition to more then one genre, it was this song that captured mainstream radio.
Happy Birthday Siouxsie Sioux and many more.
I hope you stay the bad-ass artist that you've always been.
