The English rock band formed by Siouxsie Sioux and bass guitarist Steven Severin in the mid 1970s brought the raw edge of Punk to the Post-Punk era with equal parts Pop and Avant-Garde, joining the great band The Cure as the forerunners of the Gothic music scene. Their music didn't really hit the US shores until 1980, when their odd Kabuki-like make-up stood in sharp contrast to the American rockers making their way to the 1980s. The sound of the band flowed between raucous Punk to Psychedelic, never becoming predictable.
Over 30 years ago, in 1982, the band released a single that was not featured on any album at the time. "Fireworks" was written and produced by the band, and leaned more toward the Psychedelic end of the spectrum. I thought it would be a great way to celebrate the birth of the American nation, as much of the nations holds firework displays. So here are Siouxsie & the Banshees with "Fireworks"
