what happened next
The Banshees went from strength to strength and effortlessly sold out Friars in 1979/1980. The Banshees continued in one form or another for another 20 odd years. During this time Sioux and Budgie teamed up as The Creatures having hit records away from the Banshees. By 2008 Siouxsie was recording and touring as a solo artiste. Some of the punk ethic clearly hasn't deserted her judging by a very hostile interview for Uncut magazine in 2007

Spizz Energi are still going strong and under this name scored the legendary indie classic "Where's Captain Kirk"

The Human League by the time they came back to Friars in 1981 were going for world domination. After two albums, Marsh and Ware went off to form Heaven 17. Oakey and Wright recruited Jo Callis from the Rezillos, local musician Ian Burden and two girls they saw dancing in a nightclub and never looked back. They are still releasing new records and touring in 2012
