Once described as 'the most elitist band in the world,' Siouxsie and The Banshees burst onto the music scene in 1976 with a stance that took the punk ideal to its extreme. They had no songs, couldn't play, and paraded an image which no record company would touch.
Shunning the swastika armbands and fetish clothing, singer Siouxsie Sioux quickly developed a style which has been copied the world over — dark, heavy make-up, a black shock of gravity-defying hair and shimmering jewelry. She will always be known as punk's very own Princess of Darkness.
This critical biography follows the band from their early days as part of The Sex Pistols' entourage through to the present time, when their massive cult following threatens to break into the elusive U.S. market.
