Siouxsie And The Banshees – Join Hands
Siouxsie and the Banshees were a British rock band, formed in London in 1976 by vocalist Siouxsie Sioux and bass guitarist Steven Severin. They have been widely influential, both over their contemporaries and with later acts. Q included John McKay’s guitar playing on “Hong Kong Garden” in their list of “100 Greatest Guitar Track Ever”, while Mojo rated guitarist John McGeoch in their list of “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time” for his work on “Spellbound”. The Times cited the group as “one of the most audacious and uncompromising musical adventurers of the post-punk era”. Join Hands is their second studio album, released in September 1979 by Polydor. Upon its release, it was hailed by the British press, including Melody Maker, Sounds, NME and Record Mirror. Musically, it is darker than the band’s debut album The Scream: it sounds more claustrophobic and more haunting and it is seen as a precursor of the gothic rock genre.
