On March 2nrd, 1987, Siouxsie and the Banshees released their covers LP Through the Looking Glass. The album’s title was a homage to the Lewis Carroll theme throughout the Banshee’s career, as well as referencing track 2 on the LP, a cover of Kraftwerk’s Hall Of Mirrors.
Additionally, releasing a covers LP was a practical decision, as the previous LP Tinderbox was fraught with delays due to a knee injury, and a disagreement over production, so the quick release of a new record was desirable.
Through the Looking Glass features two single releases
A cover of Bob Dylan’s This Wheel’s on Fire
and a cover of Iggy Pop’s soundtrack to the Berlin Ubahn from his album Lust for Life—The Passenger
