Siouxsie & The Banshees - Mittageisen (Metal Postcard)

How can you post punk music without something from Siouxsie and the Banshees? You can't, so here is some for you. I don't think this one is massively well known outside the hardcore banshees fans. A German version of Metal Postcard (which is originally in English on her excellent debut "The Scream").

Lyrics on the back cover, so you can learn and sing along in German (high res scan included in download). The b-side is also excellent, an old live favorite "Love In A Void". It's a little scratched I'm afraid, so to make up for this the following post will be a brilliant studio bootleg called Metal Shadows (which has another version of Love In A Void)

Band: Siouxsie and the Banshees
Label: Polydor
Year: 1977
Tracks:
1. Mittageisen (Metal Postcard)
2. Love In A Void

Ripped from glorious scratched vinyl

O my god! I've been searching for this since 1979 when I taped it from the radio and the cassette stopped in the middle ... thanks! THANKS!

It's a cassette from a Munich mod/punk band from 1984. The sound is ... well, not very good, and the singing is a shame, but it's got some energy. I ripped it from the original cassette (which should be legal, as I was the singer & guitarist).
Thanks again for all the fine stuff!
Michael

Love in a Void is definitely my most favorite Siouxsie & Banshees song.
