Welcome to the new look Bangles Discography!
This site is intended as a reference for fans and collectors of the Bangles' records. It aims to include every release, complete with track lists, catalogue numbers and of course details of the lovely picture sleeves. The Bangles were active as a band from 1981 until 1989, and then reformed in 1999 and continue to tour and release new music. Releases from both these periods are included.
Follow the links on the menu on the left for everything released by the Bangles, plus solo and side projects from the band members. Alternatively visit the site map by clicking here.
The site is organised by release, in chronological order. Since we're based in the UK, British releases (where applicable) are listed first, followed by European, American, Australian and finally Japanese. On each page vinyl is listed first, followed by cassettes, then CDs, then anything else (for example MiniDisc). Promo releases are listed after the retail releases.
Quick Introduction to solo careers
Following the original breakup of the Bangles in 1989, Susanna Hoffs released two solo albums, one in 1991, and the second in 1996. Her new album with Matthew Sweet, "Under the Covers Vol. 1" was released in 2006, with a "Vol. 2" planned soon. Debbi Peterson formed a duo called Kindred Spirit with ex-River City People lead singer Siobhan Maher. Their self-titled album came out in 1995. Vicki Peterson formed the Psycho Sisters with Susan Cowsill before joining the Continental Drifters, with whom she released 5 albums (on one of which Vicki was a guest artist rather than a full member). She also released an EP in 2006 with her new band The Lamps. Although Michael Steele played with several bands during the '90s, including her own, Crash Wisdom, she did not release any material. Her demo recordings with the Runaways from 1976 were, however, released. Original bass player Annette Zilinskas left the Bangles in 1983 to join Blood On The Saddle, with whom she released three albums. She later joined Iris Berry and Pleasant Gehman to form the Ringling Sisters, who released an album in 1990 followed by a couple of EPs. Since Michael Steele left the Bangles in 2005, the band have been touring with the lovely Abby Travis on bass - visit her website for more info on her music. For more on all these solo projects, follow the links on the menu on the left.
The country of origin listed is either the country of release or manufacture, or both. For example, you'll find a great deal of releases from the Netherlands - this is because CBS manufactured most of their vinyl there for European release, so the items were not necessarily intended for the Dutch market. Vinyl for the UK market was mostly manufactured in the UK, but when CDs became prevalent Sony Music mostly used one CD manufacturing plant in Austria, so again a large number of Austrian CDs are not necessarily for the Austrian market.
