Label: Sub Pop
Catalog #: 70518
Well, who was expecting Siouxsie Sioux to show up on the Sub Pop Count-Up? Certainly not me, but here she is with The Creatures, a side project she formed with her spouse (and Banshees bandmate) at the time, Budgie, back in 1981. While Siouxsie & the Banshees helped pioneer the post-punk goth sound, The Creatures experimented with tribal percussion, tropicália, jazz, and, well, there even seems to be a “show tunes” influence. Sadly, this was one of their few last releases. In 2007, Siouxsie revealed she and Budgie had divorced, ending not only their marriage, but their musical partnership. This single was part of the Sub Pop Singles Club V2 #27, 1300 copies pressed, all on black vinyl, obviously. We’ll just assume Stevie played Side A.
