This year saw one of the most triumphant comebacks in recent memory - after a near decade absence, goth rock/post-punk icon Siouxsie Sioux returned to the stage for a series of shows that were rapturously received by legions of adoring fans. Commemorating the occasion was the release of a brand-new tribute album, Spellbound - A Tribute To Siouxsie & The Banshees, that offered a thrilling glimpse of how the next generation of underground artists from Kap Bambino to The KVB, Night Beats and R. Missing, have assimilated Siouxsie's influence into their own sound. However, one of the most exciting tracks on the album actually came from a former member of Siouxsie's band, Jon Klein, who teamed up with veteran post-punker Jah Wobble on a jaw-dropping version of "Monitor."

Originally released on the now classic album Juju (1981), an album recorded prior to Klein's entrance into Siouxsie's coven, "Monitor" laid down the blueprint for a musical style that combined the sinister energy of punk rock with the complex subtleties of art rock. Klein and Wobble's version turns the ragged power of Juju's guitarist John McGeoch into a massive wall of distortion while stunningly incorporating Asian influences courtesy of Chinese harpist and the track's vocalist Yijia Tu. It's a feat that only these two musical wunderkinds could pull off, and certainly the kind of sonic alchemy that Siouxsie herself could appreciate. (continue)
