The Free Box Tapes #10: Siouxsie and the Banshees

The tenth Free Box Tape has two albums on a 90 minute tape. 

Siouxsie and the Banshees: Superstition (1991) and Peepshow (1988)

Sixty-Four Words: When I read about Siouxsie and the Banshees back in the 1980s, they seemed like a band I would like. Having listened to this tape, I think that is right. I would have liked them, then. But, there doesn’t seem much point in cultivating an interest in them now. Incidentally, I am surprised to discover that they were responsible for that heinous “Peek-a-Boo” song.*

Disposition: Basically a blank tape.

* I got kind of fascinated by the heinous "Peek-a-Boo" song, and spent some time looking into it.  It is technically quite an interesting and well-crafted production, and must have been a lot of fun to put together.  Very well made!  Yet, strangely dreadful at the same time.
