This is what I am. I have periods of enormous self-destructive depression, where I go completely off my trolley and lose all sight of reality and reason.

Life is a process of working out what's not working for you and disentangling yourself from it and trying then not walk into the same thing again. Watching your patterns and correcting them if you can.

There's a lot of rage you have to express it somehow. If I didn't express it in song, I'd become incredibly violent.

Siobhan Fahey

I've always craved to belong to somewhere, but I never have and never will.

Siobhan Fahey

Music bypasses the intellect, it makes you laugh, makes you cry, makes you want to dance, makes you want to have sex.

Siobhan Fahey

If this world is wearing thin
And you're thinking of escape
I'll go anywhere with you
Just wrap me up in chains
But if you try to go alone
Don't think I'll understand
Stay with me, stay with me.

Siobhan Fahey

You'd better hope and pray
That you make it safe
Back to your own world
You'd better hope and pray
That you'll wake one day in your own world
'Cause when you sleep at night
They don't hear your cries in your own world
Only time will tell if you can break the spell
Back in your own world.

I'm still grappling with all the things most people resolve by the time they're 35. Maybe that's why I make music that is relevant to young people. I'm emotionally stuck at the age of 13.

Siobhan Fahey

Music is a gut thing. You're working in a medium which is more in touch with the primal than the modern. A gig is a ritual. There's a congregation.

[Bananarama] were written off from day one. Nobody believed in us but us. We kept having hits despite the record company, despite the press

When do you know you're insane? And when do you known you're sane? I think I treat a fine line between the two. It's a battle to function, but somehow I manage.

Siobhan Fahey

I've tended to avoid meeting my heroes. They aren't necessarily the nicest people anyway. The exception was George Harrison, one of the loveliest men I've ever met. He lent me his home studio to make Hormonally Yours.

Siobhan Fahey

Most of my life I've had long periods of feeling down and lost. That's why every five years or so I've smashed my life to pieces and started again.

Siobhan Fahey

I'm absolutely obsessed with The Jesus And Mary Chain and Patti Smith, but I'm a massive pop fan. I love pop culture, It's a total reflection of the zeitgeist.
