Siouxie Sioux (1957)

At 17, Susan Janet Dallion left school and began following punk groups, in particular the Sex Pistols within The Bromley Contingent alongside Billy Idol and Captain Sensible. She soon joined the London club scene and imposed her glamorous and fetishist garments that mingled punk and what would later become the Gothic style with her dark make up and spiky black hair. In 1977, she formed the group Siouxie and the Banshees – inspired by Vincent Price's horror film, Cry of the Banshee - that rapidly hit the charts and seduced with its Orient-meets-rock feel. In the 1980s, she also created the group The Creatures before going on a solo career, from the mid-2000s. An inspiration to many musicians such as The Cure, PJ Harvey, The Smiths and Garbage, Siouxie Sioux also influenced the subculture movement, the ‘Batcavers’ – remaining the icon of edgy music and fashion: 'Musicians have come and gone, but the one constant is me.'
