For this week’s installment of Vintage Video, we present one of the weirder things you’ll see today: Siouxsie and the Banshees’ “Alice In Wonderland”-inspired “Play at Home” special that aired on the U.K.’s Channel 4 in 1983, during the period Robert Smith was in the band.
The 50-minute special, which has since been included on the “Nocturne” DVD, was created by the band itself, and it shows. There’s music by The Banshees, The Creatures and The Glove, and all sorts of odd vignettes, including, as you can see above, Siouxise and the whole band dressed up as Alice.
Watch the whole wonderfully weird thing below (via PPTTCureboy):
