Reviews & Opinions

DAVID HEPWORTH, SMASH HITS, AUGUST 1981: You certainly know that London has gone funk berserk when the news has got through the permafrost to reach the ears of Siouxsie. So she drops everything and gallops out to cover Ben E. King's 'Supernatural Thing' on the 12" version of this here, dishing it up with all the rollicking good humour we've come to expect of her. The title track is more the ticket; The Banshees swirl and shimmer like Bunnymen, but still she sings in the tone of voice that most people reserve for complaining about dry cleaning.

Additional Notes

'Arabian Nights' from Juju.
