Following on from the absolutely fantastic Mr Dream “Siouxsie EP” (including their brilliant version of Israel), not surprisingly consisting of Siouxsie and the Banshees covers, from early Banshees LPs, comes another cracking Siouxsie cover. This time it is “Icky Blossoms” covering “Arabian Knights”, and giving it an electro edge. Nice.
Icky Blossoms premiered their Siouxsie and the Banshees cover of “Arabian Knights” here on Noisey almost a month ago, and now we’ve got the visuals to go with it. Prolific video directors High5Collective ditched the sword-fighting and desert life in the original’s literal video interpretation and instead, glammed up the tune with neon lights and fabulous costumes. “Arabian Knights” will be featured on Icky Blossoms and Black Lips’ split seven-inch, Cowboy Knights, available on the holy day of 4/20 (AKA Record Store Day) via Saddle Creek.
