SIOUXSIE AND THE BANSHEES With French Xmas Carol ‘I’l EST NÉ, LE DIVIN’…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

21 December 2018

Back in 1982 SIOUXSIE AND THE BANSHEES, with The Cure‘s Robert Smith as temporary member, covered a traditional French Christmas carol called ‘I’l Est Né Divin Enfant‘ (‘He is born, the divine child’) which was published for the first time in 1862 by the organist of the Cathedral of Saint-Dié-des-Vosges. It was released as the B-side on the single ‘Melt‘, a great track from their excellent A Kiss In The Dreamhouse. Siouxsie in French, pretty special…

Hallelujah! Let’s all sing for peace,
tolerance, equality and unity…

The Twilight Sad, the marvelous Scottish indie songwriters, will release a limited run,
AA-side single on 7″ on 15th June on Fat Cat Records. The two songs on the single will be ‘It Never Was the Same’ and ‘There’s a Girl in the Corner’ from their 2014 album ‘Nobody Wants To Be Here And Nobody Wants To Leave’. So far nothing really exceptional, but ‘There’s A Girl In the Corner’ is an impressive cover version by Robert Smith (The Cure) and that’s quite special for the fans and… the band. Frontman James Graham expressed his joy over the collaboration “Hearing someone that is one of our musical heroes cover one of our songs, and sing the words that I wrote n my bedroom, is one of the most amazing things that has happened to us. Thanks again to Robert for taking the time to do this”.
Listen and enjoy – two beauties…
