Hyaena is a fabulously textured and psychedelic offering born out of experimentation – Sioux and Severin’s lyrics contrastingly bleak.The departure of McGeoch sees Robert Smith cement his roots in Banshees history with his only studio offering. Single releases Swimming Horses, Dazzle and Overground ably demonstrate the darker underbelly of pop at a time where the charts are brimming with sugar coated hits.
CD - This remastered and expanded CD boasts 4 bonus tracks including Dear Prudence, the glamour mix of Dazzle and the previously unreleased songs Baby Piano - Part One and Baby Piano - Part Two featuring Robert Smith of the Cure. This CD re-issue is now housed in a digi-pak with sleevenotes by Paul Morley.
LP - Remastered from the original ¼” tapes and cut at half speed at Abbey Road studios, London.Both artwork and audio have personally been overseen and orchestrated by Siouxsie Sioux and Steven Severin.
