Post Siouxsie & The Banshees by Mark Paytress
I find biographies a very intimate read. You always kind of hope that you can get a glimpse of a star and feel closer to their secrets, accepting the fact that there might be disappointing discoveries along the way too.
As you would expect from an authorised biography there are plenty of historical facts in this book from the very early attempts of playing 'music', to Siouxsie shocking Disney World in her fantastic thigh-length boots.
At times you kind of wonder how on earth Siouzsie and the gang can still be alive after all that they have been through with numerous dramas involving drugs,drink & violence...
This darker side is offset by Siouxsie and Budgie's love story which unfurls in a comical, glamorous and sweet manner. This book is filled with beautiful photographs and unbelievably cult-like stories.
All in all a fantastic read and a treasure to own...

nothing. I can take or leave the band, but that autobiography is a laugh-riot the whole way through.

I have read the biographies on Aerosmith, The Rolling Stones and even Keith Moon
BUT
I have not read ANYTHING as whacked out as "The Dirt"
I cannot believe human beings acted like that and still lived
When they say "the dirt" they're referring to the guys in the band
