19. Siouxsie Calendar
For the first time on DVD! This remastered DVD features footage taken from the band's 1983 performances at the Royal Albert
Hall. Tracklist includes: 'Israel', 'Dear Prudence', 'Paradise Place', 'Melt!',
'Cascade', 'Pulled To Bits', 'Night Shift', 'Sin In My Heart' and 'Happy House'.
Their excellent 1983 live show remains a
sustained fantasy on the dark glamour, Brit-punk legends Siouxsie
and the Banshees at their zenith over two nights at the Albert Hall in 1983.
Not a wink nor a smile breaks the spell - which peaks, naturally, with the
hit Spellbound - and no band can have been more calculated to thrill the average
English and Drama A-level student. High-concept schlock, of course, but the
inner goth remains mightily impressed. This classic concert set was recorded
live at London's Royal Albert Hall on Sept 30th & Oct 1st 1983. The Cure's
Robert Smith joined the lineup on guitar for this particular tour and is an
integral part of the concert performance. The bonus features of the disc include
the BBC documentary "Play At Home" (53
min), the promotional video of "Dear Prudence" and 2 live takes from "The
Old Grey Whistle Test" of Melt" and "Painted Bird", a photogallery plus a Siouxsie
calendar and Siouxsie screensaver.
