Siouxsie andthe Banshees Live Warwick University March 09th 1981
Siouxsie &the Banshees Live Warwick University March 09th 1981
Sound quality is 'A'.
Lots more Siouxsie &the Banshees coming in the future, this one was handy and is a rip from Mostyn and below is the info:
"The BBC's 1981 recording of The Banshees at Warwick University has been
extensively bootlegged - it's perhaps been most widely circulated as the
"Strawberry Girl" LP.
I recorded this from a recent rebroadcast, and whilst it's by no means
studio quality, I think that the sound is better than on some of the
"commercial" bootlegs which you might have paid a lot of money for. As
always, the BBC tends to broadcast "edited highlights", rather than the
full show - and their choice of "highlights" tends to vary.
At the time this gig was recorded, the line-up had settled on Siouxsie,
Steve Severin, Budgie and John McGeoch, and the band were about to release
their 4th album "Juju".
Date: 9th March 1981
Venue: Warwick University
Source: A BBC archive recording, captured from a DTT (Digital Terrestrial Television) radio channel
Encoder: Lame v 3.91, VBR, Joint Stereo, q=1, Lowpass Filter = 16 kHz
Bitrate: min = 112k, max = 224k, average = 168k"
All that being said, I seem to find Siouxsie got better at singing live with age, to hear the Creatures live is to hear and almost always in tune unwavering Siouxise belt them out.
