Who cares who influences who I mean why are people so hung up on if a band sounds like another band. If ya ask me that's a good thing when a musician tries to emulate someone they like while adding there own twist it to. Everyone is going to sound like a mix of this this and that. No one sounds truly original with no influences from no where.
It's always a bit diluted when slapping a 'sounds like Siousxie ' label on a young band. I agree their sound does carry some of the tribalism and vocal stylings of the Banshees but to me I hear more Nico, Bunnymen, x-mal and Cranes influences in their sound.
no idea why it has become so outstandingly fashionable these days to compare just about everything to this couple of old siouxsie lps. but i'm still wondering if perhaps someone might take note of the really heavy dub and krautmotorik vibes on that album instead. that's what it's all about here. i mean, listen to that bass, kids! siouxsie my ass.
