For Juju (1981), Siouxsie and the Banshees took a different approach and practiced the songs in concert first before recording them. Juju, according to Severin, became an unintentional concept album that “drew on darker elements”. Sounds hailed it as “intriguing, intense, brooding and powerfully atmospheric”. The album later peaked at number 7 in the UK album charts and became one of their biggest sellers. McGeoch’s guitar contributions on Juju would be later praised by Johnny Marr of the Smiths.

During the 1981 accompanying tour, Siouxsie and Budgie secretly became a couple. At the same time, they also began a drum-and-voice duo called the Creatures, releasing their first EP, Wild Things.

The Banshees followed in 1982 with A Kiss in the Dreamhouse. The record, featuring strings on several numbers, was an intentional contrast to their previous work, with Severin later describing it as a “sexy album”. The British press greeted it enthusiastically. Richard Cook finished his NME review with this sentence: “I promise…this music will take your breath away”. At that time, McGeoch was struggling with alcohol problems and was hospitalized on his return to a promotional trip from Madrid. The band fired him shortly thereafter. Severin asked Robert Smith to take over guitarist duties again; Smith accepted and rejoined the group in November 1982.
