A little over a week after the “Dear Prudence” single was released, Siouxsie and The Banshees made their first live recording — an album and a VHS tape — at the Royal Albert Hall, having made ringer Robert Smith an official member. While he’d performed live with them back in 1979, that was more of an ad hoc situation.
This time, Smith stuck around as a Banshee for nearly a year, after which he was never heard from again.
