SIOUXSIE & the BANSHEES – “Israel” / “Red Over White” (Polydor POSP 205) November 1980
Siouxsie & the Banshees “Israel” – This is my joint record of the week. If something has to be sung about Christmas I’d much rather it was this. Not as instant as ‘Christine’, but with far more depth.
Beautiful haunting refrain, echoey guitar, very atmospheric. The more I listen to it, the more I admire it. Puts everything else to shame. (Record Mirror)
