The Creatures first surfaced in 1981 as a side project of Siouxsie and the Banshees frontwoman Siouxsie Sioux and the band's drummer, Budgie; after debuting with the EP Wild Things, they returned two years later with the full-length Feast. With their work in the Banshees remaining the duo's top priority, however, they did not assume the Creatures guise again until issuing the album Boomerang in late 1989; after the Banshees dissolved in the wake of 1995's The Rapture, Sioux and Budgie -- who had since married -- announced the Creatures would now be their primary creative vehicle, issuing the EP Eraser Cut in 1998. The full-length Anima Animus followed the next year, as did the remix collection Hybrids. In 2000 the band issued U.S. Retrace, a collection of previously unreleased tracks from the time of the Anima Animus sessions. Sequins in the Sun, a live recording from the June 1999 Glastonbury Festival, was released in 1999, followed by Hai!, a studio recording featuring KODO drummer Leonard Eto, in 2003. In 2007 Siouxsie announced that she and Budgie had been divorced, which effectively brought their musical collaboration under the Creatures moniker to a close.
