Well, they started out as Sex Pistols groupies. Then at some punk concert
(Isle of Wight?) they went on stage without any real rehearsal and supposedly
they were a hit with the crowd I ahve no idea what they played. Thus Siouxsie
and the Banshees was born. Incidentally, Sid Vicious was their drummer (when
he wasn't beating up Billy Idol), before going on to the Sex Pistols.
