Siouxsie and the Banshees Live Performances/Interviews Volume III

  1. (UKTV) BBC’s Rock Goes To College the 19th of March 1981: Siouxsie and The Banshees LIVE at The Warwick Arts Centre, University of Warwick, Warwickshire. Songs include: Israel, Spellbound, Arabian Knights, Halloween, Christine, Night Shift, Red Light, But Not Them, Voodoo Dolly and Eve White/Eve Black. Rock Goes To College (RGTC) was a BBC series that ran between 1978 and 1981 on British television. A variety of up-coming rock oriented bands were showcased live from small venues and broadcast simultaneously on television and radio during a 40-50 minute live performance.
  2. (UKTV) Play at home special present – Siouxsie & the banshees (with Robert Smith) (with The Glove) September 1984: Play at Home — Alice in Wonderland themed TV Special Songs they played: Weather cade (The Creatures) A blues in drag (The Glove) Circle (Siouxsie) Eve White/Eve Black (From Nocturne) Voodoo Dolly (From Nocturne) Helter Skelter (From Nocturne) Siouxsie and the Banshees, “Play at Home” on Channel 4 (1984, video, entire show, 50 minutes) If you like the Cure and Siouxsie and the Banshees, 1983/1984 was an absolute golden period. Robert Smith was playing guitar with the Banshees (one of several stints), appearing on Nocturne (the Banshees live from the Royal Albert Hall — a stunning gig released on double vinyl and VHS!) and on the studio LP Hyaena; Robert Smith and Steve Severin had formed the Glove with Jeanette Landray (then girlfriend of Severin’s band mate Budgie) and Siouxsie and Budgie had formed the Creatures. 1984 was also a golden era for live music TV with the Tube, the Old Grey Whistle Test and, briefly “Play at Home” — a series of documentaries about leading rock bands made by themselves… what could go wrong? So the Banshees do their own unique (and surreal) version of Alice in Wonderland, with a full supporting cast, and intercut with music from the Banshees, the Glove and the Creatures. Siouxie’s dis-embodied blood-red lips narrate the story, and chews all available furniture. Green screen tech must have been cheap — the whole show is littered with really bad backgrounds (but I think they new that). A strange film Siouxsie and The Banshees did for television running about 45 minutes long. It contains short vinettes, music videos exclusive to this film and live concert performances.
