Siouxsie Sioux at 56

It's my age I know, but whenever Savages are played on 6Music (and with the recent release of their debut album, they've been played a lot) I turn to Mrs S and say...'this is a splendid racket, but it don't arf sound like Siouxsie & the Banshees in places...' Or words to that effect.

Today, however, to mark Siouxsie's 56th birthday, Tom Ravenscroft played a session version of the fantastic 'Placebo Effect' from 'Join Hands' by yer actual Banshees. It sounded magnificent coming out of the radio. To continue the celebrations, here's another corker from Bromley's finest.

Yeah, they do sound like Siouxie, I suppose everything kinda gets re-hashed in some way. There's a song the Savages do about the suicide of Rommel, heavy....I'm looking out for that.
