Siouxsie and the Banshees' debut album The Scream (1978) is a beautiful rash of music and personal moment of clarity for yours truly, a rite of passage if you will. It scratches and burns with reckless fury, hammering drums and a snarling, brutal style that scares the shit out of most parents. It was also the gateway record that pointed me in the direction of influential bands like The Smiths . . .
