Siouxsie and the Banshees - The Scream (Polydor, 1978)

Siouxsie and the Banshees - The Scream
Antisemite band? O, she has her excuses!

  1. According to Uncut, "For much of 1976, Siouxsie wore swastika armbands in an attempt to enrage the Establishment's 'we fought a war for the likes of you' mindset....Siouxsie is surprisingly frank, if unrepentant."The culture around then," she explains, "it was Monty Python, Basil Fawlty, Freddie Starr, The Producers - 'Springtime For Hitler'....It was used as a glamour thing. And you know what?" she sighs. "I have to be honest but I do like the Nazi uniform. I shouldn't say it but I think it's a very good-looking uniform."
