In 1984, Siouxsie & The Banshees released Hyæna, their first album on Geffen records here in the U.S., who also re-released all of their previous records, which I’m pretty sure was the same deal Geffen struck with XTC. In retrospect, I think the gamble was that by making the back catalog easier to find, they could build up a fanbase to break the future albums.
