Spellbound: Siouxsie and the Banshees

Spellbound: Siouxsie and the Banshees


I would argue that Siouxsie Sioux, like Mick Jones and Paul Simonon of the Clash, is one of a very small number of punks who have retained their artistic integrity over the years since 1976.

Punk rock may have challenged society’s mores but it was definitely still a man’s world. Siouxsie refused to be forced into any corners, boxes or clichés and, as she explains to journalist Miranda Sawyer, she is still forging her own path.


Miranda Sawyer explores how punk band Siouxsie and the Banshees became one of the most distinct, influential and uncompromising acts in music.
