Any other Siouxsie fans?

I hadn't listened to any CDs for a long time in my truck. The other day when I went to the urologist (damn, I'm really dating myself here) I finally had a chance and listened to a mixed CD of Siouxsie's best (IMO).

Apparently it stirred something in me, having seen her twice live, both times deeply affecting me. I started searching for recent images of her, wondering what an old friend looked like now....damn! She released an album late last year...and I missed it?



I had to order it right away.

Is my teenage crush on her all for naught...or is she still a gorgeous woman? All makeup and photochopping aside, she looks fine for 50.

New album website

Sure, it's not screaming with the same punk vitriol as The Scream...so she's mellowed at 50. So have I and thought it wasn't bad.

Meh, I've bought every album she's been a part of, so I'm biased. I really just want to do her.

Meh, she finally ditched Budgie, who admittedly was much of the Banshee's sound.

A couple of my alltime faves:

Sin In My Heart

Switch (w/Robert Smith)

And this last one shows me she's slowed down a bit, but only compared to the amazing energy she was capable of in her youth. I hope to be doing so well when I'm 50.

Spellbound
