Siouxsie And The Banshees’ Siouxsie Sioux and Steven Severin’s decade long feud is over. Their history and reconciliation is recounted in the new issue of MOJO magazine out Tuesday, ahead of the final four Banshee’s album reissues. “There are many bridges to mend,” Sioux says of her rekindled friendship with Severin. “But it’s good. There’s hope there.”
In the feature, Mojo describes the hotblooded tensions between the icequeen and bassist, which lead to a back-stage fight at LA’s Universal Amphitheatre where Sioux wrapped a telephone cord around Severin’s neck. “You wouldn’t get the Banshees sitting around with a therapist,” says the bassist. “We used to blast through it in a very English way – a cup of tea then hit the road. You can’t do that for that many years without resentments building up.”
