Quote from: SueC on June 15, 2020, 05:40:44Siouxsie covered this, @piggymirror? It'd be great if you popped your favourite clip of that on the Banshees thread - should be really interesting.

QuoteMcGeoch sent a jolt through the scene with Magazine, Siouxsie Sioux and more. Johnny Marr, James Dean Bradfield and others salute an overlooked musicianthere was another band who wanted him: Siouxsie and the Banshees. They had just lost their guitarist and drummer and while still with Magazine he was invited to play on Happy House, immediately making an impact with a shimmering guitar line that snakes through the song. He was eventually convinced to make the switch permanent in 1980. The albums Kaleidoscope, Juju and A Kiss in the Dreamhouse marked a hugely fertile period for the Banshees with McGeoch-powered tracks such as Spellbound invoking "pure invention, grace and bloodlust ballet" according to Bradfield. Marr adds: "The music he made with the Banshees ... the word imperial was made for that music."
