    I love the moment when the goat is led across the screen right as the cowbell is added to the mix. Brilliant.

    And of course I hope if the rapture really ever was to occur that the sign would be random Indian headdress-wearing black men popping up out of bushes and bearing their teeth like a cat.

    As for Siouxsie, her voice is a little weatherworn here, but the song itself is beautiful…a wonderful mini-suite with the strings and different sections with percussion. Plus I love what she’s wearing. Heh heh. Good for her for still being able to perform and totally captivate her loyal audience.
