The Times (8.8.98)

Singled out

What always made the work of icon Siouxsie Sioux stand out was her open attitude to instrumentation. The now- defunct Banshees would switch styles of string and guitar, and on The Creatures ' new EP Eraser Cut she merges electric and acoustic sounds with her partner Budgie. Siouxsie makes few other attempts to update her music, but enhanced production and the self- confidence that comes with more than 20 years in the business has brought a modern but mature approach, as demonstrated on Pinned Down, with its chamber-orchestra playing-pop sound.

An EP to investigate, if not to cherish.
