Siouxsie singer, Siouxsie guitarist, Siouxsie COVID-19 doctor


This music video from England is called Siouxsie And The Banshees – Warwick University 1981.

As far as I know, there are three women in the world called Siouxsie. Siouxsie of the Banshees. And Siouxsie Medley, United States post-hardcore punk rock guitarist. Finally, Dr Siouxsie Wiles, the best known New Zealand doctor now fighting COVID-19.

All three Siouxsies have in common that they were born Susan (Susie) and changed the spelling later.

This 9 July 2020 video is called Vocal Coach [Beth Roars] reacts to Siouxsie And the Banshees – Spellbound (Siouxsie Sioux Live).

Siouxsie Sioux is not just a songwriter and singer, but sometimes also a guitar player.

In this live music video, she sings the Banshees song Sin in my heart. And plays second guitar to the late John McGeoch’s lead guitar.

This live music video from the USA says about itself:

Dead Sara – Killing in the Name (Rage Against the Machine cover)

Dead Sara performing Killing in the Name Of at the Echo in Los Angeles on 5/6/2014.

Chris Null and [lead guitarist] Siouxsie Medley venture into the crowd to play towards the end.

Suzie Medley changed her name to Siouxsie mainly because of her partly Native American ancestry.

Finally, Dr Siouxsie Wiles from New Zealand.

Ever since she was a teenager, she has dyed her hair pink, and spelt her name inspired by Siouxsie Sioux.

She now angers right-wingers in New Zealand who want to ‘kick that woman off TV’.

She gets hate mail from sexists who hate women, especially pink-haired women who supposedly ‘cannot be real scientists’. And from ‘coronavirus is just a little flu‘ ‘Flu Klux Klan‘ persons who would not mind if in New Zealand as many people would die like rats from COVID-19 as in Donald Trump’s USA and in Bolsonaro’s Brazil. Usually, these two categories of Siouxsie Wiles haters are the same persons.

  6. Linda,

    The new and more contagious Delta variant of the coronavirus is threatening to send Americans back into lockdown.

    Meanwhile, conspiracy theories about the COVID-19 pandemic and vaccines are skyrocketing on social media, slowing our ability to end this nightmare. These dangerous lies—which specifically target women, girls, and Black, Indigenous, and people of color—are literally killing people.

    But there’s hope: A new study shows that just 12 people, known as the “Disinfo Dozen,” are responsible for 65% of online pandemic-related disinformation.1 That means if we can take down the Disinfo Dozen, we can make serious progress in defeating this pandemic and saving lives.

    This is why UltraViolet—along with dozens of partners—have launched a huge campaign to ban the Disinfo Dozen from social media. And if we can raise enough money, we’ll launch hard-hitting newspaper ads and billboards in the heart of Silicon Valley to pressure Facebook, Twitter, and other tech giants to kick the Disinfo Dozen off their platforms.

    We can’t do this work without your support. Will you rush a $5 donation right now to our emergency campaign to take down the Disinfo Dozen and take on right-wing disinformation?

    While the COVID-19 pandemic has taken the lives of millions of people—especially women, girls, poor people, and Black, Indigenous, and people of color—around the globe, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter have allowed disinformation and fake science to thrive.

    Why? Because it’s good for the corporate bottom line. Tech mega-corporations allow the Disinfo Dozen to spread inaccurate and even dangerous content because it goes viral due to the platforms’ biased algorithms, which sensationalize content and prioritize clicks and engagement rather than the truth.

    And as disinformation spreads, Silicon Valley rakes in the money. Anti-vaccine “activists,” including the Disinfo Dozen, reach more than 62 million followers on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, bringing in upwards of $1.1 billion in annual revenue for the social media giants.2

    We can’t let these corporate executives put their wealth over the health of women, girls, poor and working-class folks, BIPOC, and LGBTQ people. That’s exactly why UltraViolet is springing into action by launching a huge campaign to pressure Facebook, Twitter, and other social media companies to ban the Disinfo Dozen. Will you chip in $5?

    Thank you.
