Siouxsie & The Banshees: Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee

Kris Needs, ZigZag, January 1986

LAST MONTH WE CAUGHT SIOUXSIE AND THE BANSHEES FIGHTING INJURY AND BOUNCERS IN NOTTINGHAM AND SET THE SCENE FOR THIS INTERVIEW, WHICH HAD TO BE POSTPONED WHEN SIOUX WAS RUSHED TO HER LONDON DOCTOR WITH COMPLICATIONS ARISING FROM HER DISLOCATED KNEE. I JOINED THEM IN AIR STUDIOS, OXFORD STREET, WHERE THEY WERE MIXING THEIR AS-YET-UNTITLED NEW ALBUM. BUDGIE WAS BUSY BECOMING VIDEO OLYMPICS CHAMP SO I CORNERED STEVE THEN SIOUX, WHO WAS FINISHING A VOCAL OVERDUB WHEN I ARRIVED.
