Siouxsie & the Banshees released ‘Ju Ju’ their fourth album on June 6, 1981, a record now bestowed with classic status - like their other percussion heavy release, the 1978 debut ‘The Scream’.
The Ju Ju tour was the first and only time that I saw the Banshees, I had been interested in the group since 1977, after hearing the session they recorded for BBC Radio One, broadcast on the John Peel show. Siouxsie & The Banshees were often described at that time, as the best unsigned group in London and it would not be until 1978, that they were taken on by Polydor records (now part of the Universal Music Group)
The European tour began on June 14th 1981 in Brussels, and ran to the end of the summer before the group flew to North America for dates throughout October and November.
This Dutch FM broadcast is an upgrade taken from a master source and includes Happy House which had not been previously available. It features seven live versions of tracks that appear on ‘Ju Ju’, only missing ‘Into The Light’ and ‘Monitor’ (the latter performed but not broadcast as were ‘Christine’ and ‘Red Light’). ‘But Not Them’ was a new track played live by the Banshees in concert, it had been written by the ‘Creatures’ (a Siouxsie and Budgie side project) after the Ju Ju sessions and the song would be eventually released on their Wild Things EP in September 1981.
This is a superb recording; the clarity highlights the extraordinary and unique guitar playing of John McGough. High-class audio equipment has been used, it is hiss free and doesn’t sound compressed. Few recordings of this quality circulate from the early eighties and although I may be slightly biased having seen the band on this tour, this is my favourite Banshees recording from this time (1980-81).
