Re: Eldritch is no longer funny

I always find :von: interviews quite strained. I see very little humor just somebody looking for a soundbite without any depth. Not a criticism, just noting the way he chooses to play in the park.

IIRC didn't Eldritch say that the record company had bodged "Never Land - Full Length" together themselves out of bits of outtakes?

I pledged, and I'm proud and honoured to have been a part of making this happen. The fact that Amazon or whoever are selling it for less doesn't bother me, because I helped make it happen, I'll have my name in the book, and I'll have all the extra cool stuff that's coming with it. F--k knows, it's ...

Re: RSD BBC Sessions release

Well I've been in self-isolation so missed record store day. Luckily Crash Records in Leeds had some extras available mail-order so I have one of those incoming. I can hardly miss the first new Sisters record in 28 years can I? Just ordered the CD.... and I'm very happy and excited. First thingy si...

Re: cheap ?

These are the original recordings... or are they the Rhino remaster?

Never bought it.. but was once on Amazon for 9.99 (pounds)

The Fields of The Nephilim one is a corker by the way...well worth the buy. Just for the Single Remixes

Re: Worst band you have seen live and why?

Iron Maiden were pretty bad at whatever the NEC is called nowadays. Just white noise mostly. And I wasn't sure about the Union Jack waving etc... Didn't sit right. Pixies a couple of years ago too - totally underwhelmed by them. Black Francis looked like he didn't want to be there. Funny you mentio...

He worked with goth titans the Sisters of Mercy, which turned out to be an improbable masterstroke: his grandiosity turned a band whose ambition had been hobbled by their ...

Re: Proof, Morrisey's a Wank of the Highest Order

@mh wholeheartedly agree. Something from the John Robb interview with Chris stood out for me & that was the fact that when Morrissey goes out for a pint or whatever, he goes out in character rather than as just himself. Maybe thats just him... there is no veneer. I remeber Sean Hughes ( a big fan o...

Re: Totally Insane fb

I still remember the guide for new students when I arrived in Leeds in 1990 warning us off all the "proper Leeds" Leeds pubs. "Don't go in there with your long mac and your CND badge." It really was a different time. :lol: Huddersfield was the same except there weren't that many student pubs! I was...

Re: NEW NEW SONG (On the Beach)

that's not a song, it's a verse and maybe the lead in to a chorus if I'm being generous I just checked, and it fits in a single tweet. Not sure what that means, but yeah, it's short.
