O' Banshee

Siouxie & The Banshees are one of those bands that I am late to. Very. ‘Juju’ was the band’s fourth studio album, recorded at Surrey Sound studio with Nigel Gray on co-production duties. Listening to it now, it seems obvious that it was always going to be an album of great influence, particularly re rock, post-punk and combination thereon, in spite of / entirely because of John McGeoch's unconventional approach.

A Moxy Rogue

I was beginning to think I might never get to say this and really, truly mean it but Mr. Miller is mixing the record. As we speak. There was a moment when it appeared as though some files - some key files - may have been…missing. I did my best to distract an ailing mind but there were certainly one or two sleepless nights. Thankfully, Mr. Hamper is a notorious and meticulous hoarder and all is well.

100

We find ourselves at one singular hundred articles. With an estimated average of seven hundred words per strudel, that makes a total of approximately seventy thousand words, in all - the summary of a short and particularly weird novel - for you to paw and rummage through, like so many horny voles. I am here with you and I am amazed.

Eclectic Omens

‘Electric Ladyland’ is a record that commands a certain respect from anyone who’s laid ears on it, which should be everyone but I continue to be surprised and delighted whenever I find a body that ain’t familiar with Hendrix’ wild and weird freakout of an album. It is also true that I am never sure what fucking speed this thing runs at and I could be correct at 33 or we could be in some really strange Jimi & The Chipmunks territory at 45.
