The Creatures are a side-project of Siouxsie and the Banshees’ members Siouxsie and Budgie.
When the Sex Pistols reformed in 1996 the members of Siouxsie and the Banshees were so outraged that they dissolved the band on the spot upon hearing the news, or so the story goes. After that the The Creatures became a full-time endeavor for the duo.
Amazing song, one of the best of 1983 IMO, which is saying a lot!:
‘Right Now’, a Mel Tormé cover, is the band’s highest UK charting single to date- reaching #14 in 1983. It was the second single released that year, the first being ‘Miss the Girl‘ from the album ‘Feast.’
Artistically the sleeve design is an iconic masterpiece, but being a Siouxsie/Creatures production that should surprise no one.
