A Kiss in the Dreamhouse is the fifth studio album by British rock band Siouxsie and the Banshees. It was released on 5 November 1982 by Polydor Records. The record marked a change of musical direction, as the group used strings for the first time and experimented in the studio. Guitarist John McGeoch played more instruments, including recorder and piano. For Julian Marszalek of The Quietus, the release proved the Banshees to be "one of the great British psychedelic bands" of the post-punk era. In August 2007, it was ranked No. 1 on Mojo magazine's list of the best albums of 1982.
2004 release from this soul legend whose songs continue to be heard in their original versions and re-invented contemporary versions- from Marvin Gaye,Qunicy Jones and Minnie Riperton to Maxwell, G-Unit and Brandy, to name a few. Blending his jazz and soul roots with the rhythms of Brazil, this collection of songs feature his sensual and soulful vocals along with the talents of Brazilian guitarist Sandro Albert- naming it "R & BOSSA". Lyrically, Ware is a spiritually inspired messenger of love, an optimistic poet who dispenses doses of wisdom along with poignant prayers of oneness. He and Albert dressed the tracks luxuriously with intimate acoustic guitar riffs, classy piano flourishes, cinematic string sounds and Bossa Nova percussion.
2009 digitally remastered and expanded digipak edition of the classic Banshees album from 1982 featuring four bonus tracks including the epic 12" versions of 'Fireworks' and 'Slowdive' plus the previously unreleased demo versions of 'Painted Bird' and 'Cascade'. Siouxsie & The Banshees began life as a Punk outfit (with Sid Vicious on drums, no less!) before mutating into Post-Punkers on their way to becoming one of the most influential Goth Rock band on the scene. To this day, over 10 years after their disintegration, the band's fanatical fan base continues to grow.
