While growing up, Sioux was often left to look after herself in an undisciplined atmosphere. Even before his death, her father's alcoholism kept him incapacitated, forcing her mother to work full time.

During her teens, she was a self-confessed loner and started getting into music like David Bowie, Lou Reed, T Rex and The Stooges and started visiting the local gay discos.

In 1976 the Bromley Contingent followed the Sex Pistols to France, where Siouxsie was punched by an Arab for wearing a cupless bra, black vinyl stockings and a black armband with a swastika on it. Sioux later said that the armband was intended as a campy joke and that she did not, at that time, appreciate the implications of wearing a swastika. "The Nazis were not only anti-Semitic but anti-anyone different, anti-anyone like me."[citation needed]

"I've always been fascinated by symbols, whether it's the crucifix, the hammer and sickle or the Star of David. And it wasn't just me that brandished the swastika around. When I was growing up, it was always (adopts old codger voice) 'The youth of today... I fought the Second World War so bums like you can loaf around on the Social security,' so it was a way of antagonising that generation. In those days there wasn't so much information about the war or the Holocaust, and I didn't realise what vandals the Nazis were: all the art, the books they destroyed. Their aim was not only to promote Aryan purity, but to erase anything that might have competed with their superiority, like the Greeks. Wearing that armband was much more in the spirit of The Producers - you know, Springtime for Hitler - an amazing movie. That was camp, rather than death-camp. I was appalled that anyone would take it [seriously]..."

One of Sioux's first public appearances was with the Sex Pistols on Bill Grundy's television show in December 1976 as part of the Bromley Contingent. In the course of Grundy's interview with the members of the Sex Pistols, he tried to flirt with her: The Crucifix, a cross with corpus, a symbol used in Catholicism in contrast with some other Christian communions, which use only a cross. ...

Dallion or Ballion?

For years there has been some confusion regarding whether Siouxsie's real surname is actually "Dallion" or "Ballion". Her authorised biography now clears up the issue: she herself admits that her real surname is actually "Ballion". A family name, or surname, is that part of a persons name that indicates to what family he or she belongs. ... This article or section does not cite its references or sources. ...


She allowed "Dallion" to be the misunderstanding because of shame about her home life and not wanting fans to come around and have tea with Mrs. Ballion (her mother) — the fans would come by the family home, and her mother would invite them in and share all kinds of stories embarrassing to an increasingly popular local singer and club personality. "Dallion" even appears in the credits of an early movie; whether it was an intentional or unintentional misprint, Sioux used that to legitimise somewhat the belief that "Dallion" was correct.
