Siouxsie & the Banshees - Through the Looking Glass (New Vinyl LP)
180 Gram Half-Speed Master
Through the Looking Glass is the eighth studio album by British goth/new wave/post punk band Siouxsie and the Banshees. The album is a collection of cover versions. It was co-produced with Mike Hedges and released in March 1987 on Polydor. Through the Looking Glass was preceded by the single "This Wheel's on Fire". It was the second and final album recorded with guitarist John Valentine Carruthers. Some of their cover songs were praised by the original artists themselves. The title of the record, Through the Looking Glass, referred to Lewis Carroll's book of the same name. The band had already been inspired by Carroll's work when naming their label, Wonderland, which was derived from Alice in Wonderland. The record was also an ode to David Bowie's Pin Ups, a covers album recorded in the early 1970s.
