Burn Up - Siouxsie & The Banshees

Legbamel Not-Pop

While Siouxsie & The Banshees had a big hit with Peek A Boo in the late 80s, I always preferred Burn Up off of the "Peepshow" album. (I know that you're shocked that I'd go against the mainstream like that, but try to contain your amazement.) By then, the band had a sort of late-punk, pre-emo, proto-goth sound that could still be up-beat and wild. They played in wholly their own style and influenced many a post-punk group to experiment with sound and style. I enjoy geeking out to Peek A Boo, but I still like Burn Up and Ornaments of Gold better.

    Great track, have always erred on the side of caution with Siouxsie, may give her another go now.

    I find most of the later records to be more goth and out-there than I enjoy, but I very much like the earlier albums, especially "Peepshow".
