Siouxsie & the Banshees is a rock band that appeared in 1976 in the United Kingdom ans was formed by lead singer Siouxsie Sioux. In their first appearances in public it seemed that the band belonged to the punk music scene, however, soon it became clear that Souxsie was not willy to limit herself and the group to straight punk rock. They began to experiment with rhythm and sounds, so that the famous London newspager The Times referred to Siouxsie and the Banshees as “one of the most audacious and uncompromising musical adventurers of the post-punk era.”
Later, Siouxsie and the Banshees served as an inspiration for the creators of gothic rock, but also for some pop and avantgarde groups and singers.
Siouxsie and the Banshees disappeared from the music scene in 1995 when Siouxsie felt like the group wasn’t going anywhere anymore. The band broke up and Siouxsie now acts with The Creatures.
