band: Siouxsie Sioux, Steven Severin, Budgie, John McGeoch.
This is the original version of 'Arabian Knights' that aired on Top Of
The Pops and then was not seen again until over 20 years later when it
resurfaced on the 'The Best Of (Sound & Vision) DVD. Filmned
whilst on tour in Marseille. Siouxsie
is unrolled from a carpet, a snake winds it's way across the desert,
waves crash against the cliffs and the boys play a board game.
Siouxsie flies through the air on the carpet and a sword fight
ensues. This and the 'Spellbound' video were the first to move out
of a studio setting, it also marks the beginning of a move to focus more
on Siouxsie's face. First promo video that doesn't feature the
band playing their instruments.
