RETRO: Siouxsie & Banshees Live in Germany in 1981

Posted November 14th, 2012 by eric

Siouxsie & the Banshees’ entire set at Satory Saal, Cologne, Germany from June of 1981 is available on YouTube via German TV show “Rockpalast.” This performance took place merely weeks after the release of its fourth LP, Juju. I saw the band from the second row just under ten years later. It was, perhaps, the most starstruck I’ve ever been, which may speak to the lack of celebrities with whom I’ve been in close proximity, but it was exciting nonetheless. The video quality is slightly grainy here, but it’s a crazy good set, which Slicing Up Eyeballs has conveniently available for us:

1. “Israel”
2. “Halloween”
3. “Regal Zone”
4. “Spellbound”
5. “Arabian Knights”
6. “Switch”
7. “Pulled To Bits”
8. “Head Cut”
9. “Tenant”
10. “Night Shift”
11. “Sin In My Heart”
12. “But Not Them”
13. “Voodoo Dolly”
14. “Hong Kong Garden”
15. “Eve White Eve Black”
16. “Happy House”
17. “Skin”
