Black 2 Comm 21st January 2018

Featuring Theatre Of Hate, The Pretty Things, Jungle Brothers and loads more. Cheq out this footage of Siouxsie & The Banshees performing at Manchester's Elizabethan Ballroom in November 1977 while supporting The Clash on their "Get Out Of Control" tour. They play one of their earliest compositions called "Make Up To Break Up" which was co-written by short lived guitarist, Peter Fenton. The crowd are an unusual mix of 70's long hairs and freshly shorn, pogoing teenage punks. Siouxsie's way ahead of the pack, as you might expect, in her Westwood / McLarren "tits" t-shirt and thigh high leather boots. The band sound vital, naive and primitive . . . a bit like The Slits if they'd had any good tunes!
