  The Seven Year Itch Live DVD Advert - Click Here For Bigger ScanSiouxsie & The Banshees' concerts have not exactly been well documented on film.  It's now almost 20 years since two monumental shows at London's Royal Albert Hall were filmed for Nocturne (still unavailable on DVD), the only official release till now of a Banshees performance.  Thankfully, for their 2002 'Seven Year Itch' reunion tour, the band took the initiative, filming the second night of their stint at London's Shepherds Bush Empire to produce this 87-minute tour-de-force.

Performance-wise, this was one of the truly great Banshees shows.  The companion live CD - reviewed in RC a month or so back - features songs mainly drawn from the first night.  The DVD captures the second, and it's by far the superior performance, complimented by an excellent sound mix and dramatic camera work.  Bravely, there were no post-production overdubs and the occasional minor fluff has been left in.

Nowadays, Siouxsie is less animated on stage, but then she is in her mid-40s.  Her voice and stage persona, however, remain as potent as ever.  If anything, her sense of sexual theatre is more intense.  The display on uninhibited sexuality during 'Voodoo Dolly' is both disturbing and intoxicating, and there's not a single jailbait girlie singer cliché in sight.  Now all we need is Universal to get their finger out and reissue Nocturne.
