Session 61: Siouxsie & The Banshees – 'The Scream’

Sun, November 17, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

You only need to read a few reviews of this remarkable debut album to understand why we’re putting it on. “vital” “visceral” “uncompromising” “captivating”.

After building a cult following during the height of punk, Siouxsie and the Banshees recorded this masterpiece in just one week, heralding the birth of the post-punk movement and creating a lasting legacy that only grows stronger each year. This will be an essential session.

Hosted by: Carol Fuller
