Many of you may associate the live performance of a Post-Punk band in a Hollywood movie with the March Violets appearance in John Hughes’ 1987 film Some Kind of Wonderful. What you may not have known is that Siouxsie and The Banshees actually appeared in the film Out of Bounds the year prior—containing none other than Hughes alumni Anthony Michael Hall.
The scene above features the Banshees miming their classic single “Cities in Dust”, but in addition to this…the soundtrack is from Stewart Copeland of The Police, and also features songs by Adam Ant, The Cult, The Smiths, and Lords of the New Church.
Oh yeah, the girl with the spiky blonde hair is Jenny Wright, who some of you might know from that pre-TrueBlood southern vampire film Near Dark directed by Kathryn Bigelow, who did New Order’s video for “Touched By The Hand Of God”.
