Siouxsie & The Budgiees – The Siouxsie Experience.
From the Happy house to the Hong Kong Garden Takeaway the Budgiees aim to please any fans of the Gothic Punk Queen and her Banshees. The UK based band strive to recreate the sounds, shapes and fashion-influencing style of, perhaps one of the most important influencers of the British Avant Garde scene.
The Budgiees are named after The Banshees drummer “Budgie”. They play originals and covers made famous by The Banshees and occasionally are joined onstage by Robert Smith Impersonator “Rabbit Schmidt” from The Cureheads to celebrate the time that Cure frontman Robert Smith was on guitar duty for Siouxsie & The Banshees.
“Sally Holliday of neo-folk supergroup “The Eden House” plays Siouxsie in an amazingly convincing way. Her voice is easily as strong as Siouxsie and the attention to detail in her impression held up well for the entirety of the show. The Budgiees drove the tunes home under “Siouxsie’s” powerful guidance. I think I even shed a tear for my long dead Tippex encrusted leather biker jacket at one point. A very….very nostalgic night.” 10/10 Cathy Grime - London Metro.
