If Johnny Rotten was the father of punk, then Siouxsie Sioux was its mother. One of the seminal bands of the punk era that have survived whilst contemporaries like The Clash and The Sex Pistols have ceased to record years ago, Siouxsie & The Banshees tell their story on their own terms. From the band's unsteady birth through to their creative high with 1991's "Superstition" album, "Siouxsie & The Banshees" is the complete authorized story told in each member's own words. Despite its official tag, no punches are pulled in discussions about the band's split in 1996, the years of in-fighting and arguments and the reasons behind their recent reunion to launch their "Best Of" album. Featuring photographs and memorabilia from Siouxsie and co's personal collections, the book should appeal to all music lovers and to anyone who was there in 1976.
