Lab Overview

Limited edition picture disc pressing of Siouxsie And The Banshees’ debut album! The Scream was recorded quickly and efficiently but has since become regarded as a landmark post-punk album and a cornerstone of early goth. The sleeve is uncharacteristically vivid and colorful; one of those rare instances where the cover art is actually worthy of a pic disc. More about the album cover (cuz that’s why you’re here, isn’t it?); photographer Paul Wakefield executed the photoshoot, but the idea was all Siouxsie’s. "The idea was to shoot disquieting and unnerving images underwater in a swimming pool – you can’t scream underwater. I wanted to be able to completely control the lighting, and so an indoor pool was the only option. I scouted quite a few pools, but when I saw this pool in the YMCA in Central London, which was dark blue tiled with light blue lane stripes instead of the normal reverse colors, I knew it was the ideal location. I wanted to give it an eerie underwater night-time feel, and this setting was perfect. I used school kids as models and they pretty well ran riot.” For the uninitiated, check out “Mirage,” “Jigsaw Feeling,” “Nicotine Stain” and the Beatles cover “Helter Skelter.”
