Siouxsie and the Banshees, “Rawhead and Bloodybones”


Overall, I’m not a big fan of Siouxsie and the Banshees. I really like her voice, but their music is too jangly and art-rock for my taste. “Post Punk” and “Goth Rock” is their genre. But for a brief period, when they were calmer, dreamier and more introspective, their musical orbit paralleled mine. Pay no mind to the fan video visuals; I picked the clip for the audio quality.

Bad word
Or bad deed
Unpunished invites grief
Rawhead and Bloodybones

Reaching from
Dark cupboard
Crouching under stair,
Lurking in chimney
Pond or well

We’re down here
Held here
Dragged here
And drowned here by
Rawhead and Bloodybones

Long teeth and
Claws as well
Rawhead and Bloodybones
