Siouxsie and the Banshees: The Scream

Kris Needs, ZigZag, November 1978

FIRST DAY I got it I stunned a full room with this magnificent record...and you should have seen me three hours and four more plays later! Countless gigs and the John Peel sessions told me months ago that, when it came, the Banshees album would be a cut above the usual Promising First Album. But even my sky-high anticipations hadn't set me up for this.
