AUDIO: Siouxsie & The Banshees (1986)

Martin Aston, Rock's Backpages Audio, 1986

Aston and other journos quiz the Banshees about visiting Pompeii and writing 'Cities in Dust'; the album Tinderbox, and taking so long to record it; not looking back, and the myth of Sid Vicious; not having a grand plan; their audience, and keeping their distance from it; the importance of playing live; Siouxsie's look, and influence on young women; the movie Out of Bounds; being on Geffen, and their run-in with Bob Ezrin.
