Siouxsie & The Banshees - "Red Light" by Matt Bomarr

siouxsie and the banshees - "red light" (download) [audio]

I've been a surface Siouxsie and the Banshees fan for years now, meaning I've enjoyed their hits/collections and what not, but I'd never really dug deeper into their discography until recently. Kaleidoscope was their third studio album, released in 1980. It had a much more minimal/synth vibe than their later records. I had a hard time picking what song to post from this out of my favorite two tracks from the record, "Red Light" and "Lunar Camel," but this one won by just a little. If you're a Siouxsie fan, and you haven't picked this up yet, you're missing out. buy

Visage - "The Anvil" by Matt Bomarr

I discovered this record in the dollar bin a few years back. I picked it up based on the cover art. It just looked dark and new wavey, so I had to try it out. I put it on the turntable when I got home and lo and behold, it WAS dark and new wavey. I fell in love with this song, and did a bit of research on them. Turns out, Visage has consisted off and on of members of Ultravox (one of my favorites), Magazine, Siouxsie and the Banshees and more. This album also reached #6 on the UK charts when it was released in 1982. It's always great when you can find out something new and amazing while digging for records. I haven't done it for quite some time, but I think I'm going to start again.
