re: 1992

When I started this re: series back in April, I started off with a comparison in the catchy hook between Siouxsie and the Banshees "Kiss Them For Me" and Chapterhouse's "Pearl" (which featured the vocals of Rachel Goswell of Slowdive- which suggests Slowdive derived their name from a Siouxsie and the Banshee's song). So everything's sorta connected in this vast music landscape.
One of the better compilations of Siouxsie and the Banshees, a primer of their best material if you're not familiar with their music.

The Banshees' post-1982 singles (documented in entirety on Twice Upon a Time) have a lush and expansive sound that directly influenced the goth sound. From the opening of "Fireworks" it is immediately apparent that Siouxsie and the Banshees were growing up.
