Siouxsie And The Banshees – The Thorn E.P. (12″)

banshheedMore from ’84 and where The Banshees teamed up with the Chandos Players (who had worked with Marc Almond as Marc & The Mambas) to give some suitably string soaked Goth. Four great tracks, rerecorded with the strings and thus revamped.  Of these four tracks, two songs were previous album tracks (“Overground” from 1978’s The Scream and “Placebo Effect” from 1979’s Join Hands) whereas the other two had appeared as B-sides for single releases (“Voices (On The Air)” and “Red Over White” for “Hong Kong Garden” and “Israel”, respectively). Personal favourite is “Voices” dark and moody, all helped by Mike Hedges (Soft Cell producer)
