A rock band fronted by Siouxsie Sioux that originated in London at the time of the Sex Pistols, The Slits, The Clash, and many other Brit punk scene bands. Siouxsie had her own unique style, mixing Ancient Egyptian eye makeup and occult and provocative dressing preferences. They originated their own specific style, usually surrounding mystery and horror, but it can be on the light side too. They have been around for more than 20 years and released numerous albums but broke up a few years ago.
The (in)famous Sid Vicious played drums for Siouxsie and the Banshees at their first gig.
