Danielle Dax, “Big Hollow Man”

More late ’80s: Danielle Dax was a singer in the Siouxsie Sioux vein, and was genuinely interesting as a music-maker and songwriter, although she was too poppy to be underground and too unusual to be very popular, and maybe she wore just a bit too much finery—it was almost hard to tell what she looked like underneath all that hair and makeup and frills. Also, busy videos like this one probably didn’t help. Sadly, I think she recorded very little after the early ’90s. The Guardian recently called her the forerunner of Florence and the Machine and its ilk.
