Siouxsie And The Banshees. Susan Janet Ballion (born May 27, 1957) in Bromley, London, better known by her stage name, Siouxsie Sioux, is the lead singer of both the influential punk/gothic rock band Siouxsie & the Banshees and of its splinter group The Creatures. In the mid-1970s, Siouxsie Sioux was a member of the Bromley Contingent; a group of bored, suburban teenagers devoted to the Sex Pistols. Other members included Billy Idol, Soo Catwoman, Jordan, and fellow Banshees founder, Steven Severin.Professional career Sioux"s first gig was as an unrehearsed fill-in at the 100 Club"s "Punk Rock Festival" - two nights in September 1976 - organised by Malcolm McLaren. In 1976 the Bromley Contingent followed the Sex Pistols to France, where Siouxsie was punched by an Arab for wearing a cupless bra, black vinyl stockings and a black armband with a swastika on it. Sioux later said that the armband was intended as a campy joke and that she did not, at that time, appreciate the implications of wearing a swastika. "The Nazis were not only anti-Semitic but anti-anyone different, anti-anyone like me."
