Song:      Spellbound
Artist:    Siouxsie and the Banshees
Album:     Juju
Guitarist: John Mcgeoch

Intro/Verse - Electric with Mild distortion, Chorus, Reverb
Now on the Intro/Verse riff it may sound odd but the bass is filling in the bass notes 
John plays the arpeggio so it is in fact correct I think!

G|----------5------------------------------5------|

  And the bass plays these notes behind the arpeggio

     F    G     A#     A    G

There is also a 2nd electric guitar feintly playing an arpeggio over the chorus chords 
I cannot decipher it.

Post-Chorus 1 - Electric with Mild distortion, Chorus, Reverb

The acoustic strumming is played in A-shape rooted at 8th fret, 10th fret, 13th fret, 12th fret, and back to 10th fret.
The arpeggio at the beginning is horribly wrong as well. Not only does it not cover all the changes, but the notes are incorrect.

Hmm well judging from videos ive seen and the way John Mceoch plays it I think in fact your wrong as he plays the minimalistic arpeggio while the bass fills in the notes. The way I play it is different as I fill in the notes but im not tabbing my version. Also the electric guitar plays the shapes your talking about but the acoustic plays the chords I tabbed which if you have any knowledge of theory will see that they are in fact the same rudimentary chords as the shape you suggested. Still cheers for the correction and I'll have a look.
