Does anybody have the show from the following night [same venue].. if so, could you post it as that's John McGeoch's last Banshees performance. For some reason I always thought this show was his last, but they done a second night. Fuck knows what happened when they started playing Spellbound...this could well be the beginning of the end for McGeoch right there. Apparently he was hitting the booze in a big way and fucking up on stage. Siouxsie and Steve weren't going to stand for that, now were they?

I guess playing with Siouxsie you can sorta tell if he screws up but if McGeoch were playing with Crass could you really tell the difference ???

Ive always heard Siouxsie give the "nervous breakdown" explanation.

apparently youtube is your friend:

Siouxsie and the Banshees en Rock-Ola, 30 10 1982

pm me if you cant download from youtube and need a link.
now that youve got me obsessed with the idea of hearing mcgeochs last gig with siouxsie i'll make a post if I find one in good quality with split files...
