SIOUXSIE & THE BANSHEES - BBC Session 1995 (Flac) *Special Post* #4

The last studio session that Siouxsie & the Banshees recorded for the BBC. The band released their final album 'Rapture' in 1995 before being dropped by their record company. In 1996 they split after more than twenty years together.

This is a stunning quality recording and performance.

"Unlike other Radio 1 programs which played pre-recorded sessions, Mark Radcliffe sessions were actually played live on the spot throughout the programme. Which also meant that we could hear any mistakes, cock-ups or the true brilliance of bands which were sometimes covered up in the production room.

But not only did we get to hear some great bands do what they did best, we got to hear some studio banter by the way of questions being fired at the band. Which at times led to some unimaginable hilarious moments.

To get an idea of how that may sound, I've included all the studio banter I had alongside the tracks. This recording as with my other BBC broadcast torrents has come from my own personal collection of old cassettes." (rp61hawk, the original uploader)
