Lol Tolhurst, Budgie, & Jacknife Lee – “Los Angeles” (Feat. James Murphy)

The Cure and Siouxsie And The Banshees are two of the all-time great bands. They both came from the same era, and they both had seismic impacts on goth, post-punk, and new wave. Both bands were always intertwined in many ways; the Cure’s Robert Smith, for instance, did a couple of stints as the guitarist for the Banshees. Both acts have been in the news lately, with the Cure’s big North American tour proving that you can make a ton of money while keeping ticket prices relatively low and with Siouxsie Sioux returning for her first live shows in a decade. Now, the definitive drummers from both bands have joined forces with a big-deal producer on a new album, and they’ve got LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy singing on the lead single.
