The late 80's saw alternative music begin to infiltrate the mainstream, with such hit making acts as Depeche Mode, The Cure, and Jane's Addiction leaving an impression on the charts, radio, and MTV. It was around this time that one of the genre's founders, Siouxse & the Banshees, celebrated it's tenth anniversary as a band with their tenth studio album overall, 1988's PEEP SHOW. The album follows in the direction of its previous studio album, 86's TINDERBOX (the band had also issued an all covers release, THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS, between the two) - in so much that the arrangements were much tighter than their adventurous early 80's work. Highlights included the singles "Peek A Boo," "Killing Jar," and "Last Beat of my Heart," as well as the lesser known cuts "Turn to Stone" and album closer, "Rhapsody."
