Record Mirror 1988  

Latest release in the ever popular Peel Sessions series and number 13 in this week's singles chart is Siouxsie And The Banshees' session recorded way back in 1978.  This is actually the second Banshees Peel Session, the first having been recorded only three months previously in November 1977, and features 'Hong Kong Garden', 'Overground', 'Carcass' and 'Helter Skelter'.  Simple, uncomplicated and raw as hell, but there's no doubting the excitement in this recording and memories of the fiery foursome playing these songs on 'The Old Grey Whistle Test' still abound.  One of best releases in the series, we think.
