Siouxsie Sioux - the original high priestess of goth returns

As you stare at this photo, try to reconcile it with the fact that this woman is fifty years old:

Yes, that's Siouxsie Sioux, and yes, that's a new photo. Feel free to click through to the big version for the full effect. I hope I look that good when I'm 50. She looks the same as she did when I saw her live in 1996 and 1991. She looks fantastic.

I mean, come on, this shot below was taken almost 30 years ago!

Talk about aging well. She looks better now!

I must have been asleep when word of her budding solo career first broke. So it's old news now, but if you're living a sheltered suburban life like me, you may be interested in knowing that she's got a new album released simply under the name of "Siouxsie" called "Mantaray". There are a few song clips at her official web site here.

I'm glad to see her back on the scene. Maybe she can teach some of these goth posers stinking up the airwaves these days a thing or two.


  1. Oh, sweet! Siouxsie looks great. I got my first Siouxsie album when I was 12 and I haven't been the same since. I need to check out the new album as I never really got into the Creatures stuff.

    oh my gosh, is that really Siouxsie?! She hasn't aged a bit! I'm absolutely in love with her new album, Mantaray. Keep up the good work, Siouxsie!

    Always a fan of Sioux- however, I wish she had more of an extensive library. I easily get sick of music.

    I couldn't wait to grab a hold of Mantary, however- highly disappointed when I heard the material; unlike anything I have heard before from Sioux.

    If I had to pick my favorite material from Sioux, it would be The Banshees' B-sides.


About This Blog

This is increasingly not a blog about Alphabet City, New York. I used to live in the East Village and work on Avenue B, but I no longer do. Why don't I change the name if I'm writing about Japan and video games and guitars? Because New Yorkers are well-rounded people with varied interests, and mine have gone increasingly off the rails over the years. And I don't feel like changing the name. I do still write about New York City sometimes.
