"Hong Kong Garden" was the debut single released by English band Siouxsie & the Banshees. Issued in the UK by Polydor Records in 1978, the track was written by Banshees members Siouxsie Sioux, Steven Severin, John McKay and Kenny Morris and produced by their manager Nils Stevenson and a young sound-engineer Steve Lillywhite.
Paul Morley wrote in the NME : "It was no surprise that "Hong Kong Garden" should spiral into the charts just weeks after the group became Polydor people. The mystery and enigma of the single, coupled with the similarly seductive reputation of the group itself immediately landed it with plays on the radio. Its oriental 'authenticity', its flickering eroticism, its simple beauty pushed it deep into the charts."
