Re: Gift reissue plus extras

I'd be surprised if Von sees any cash from anything that happens on a streaming platform or in a record shop. I think there's a reason that he's toured so relentlessly for the last 20 years and it's unlikely to be because he likes the buffet breakfasts in Travel Inns. As much as I like Spotify, I d...

Re: Gift reissue plus extras

I thought he sold the master rights, not the publishing rights? So he has no control over what gets re-released but he does get still get the publishing income as songwriter which would include physical releases, streams etc. I believe you're exactly right, good summary. Indeed, if he had the publi...

Re: Gift reissue plus extras

Maybe someone should show Cadiz the BBC sessions stuff that has come out digitally and the soon to be Record Store Day release. Maybe it will incentivise them? I assume AE sees some money from the BBC session releases (both digital and limited LP)? And I assume the label (Warner) was the driving fo...

Re: Gift reissue plus extras

Thanks for the welcome and the info. I did email Cadiz records about a reissue and their reply made me chuckle.... "Hi yes, still planned. Just waiting for Mr Eldritch to decide to actually get moving to do something" Nice job. So that's not happening. But maybe he's just waiting until he's done wi...

Re: NEW SONGS!

All good news. The fact that "Sisters of Mercy" has a hit in Google News (the Roundhouse shows) is a great sign.

Everyone get your shots now.

Seriously, if they play in 2021...if anyone plays live in 2021, it's a little victory.

Well said MB. Agree with all of that. Interesting that I was just listening to BBC radio about an article that appeared on New York Times today. A fourth vax option has just released results from its testing (only phase 2 I think) and its vax differs greatly from the other three, it uses insect cel...

Do we get Susanne on the B side? Not that I've been waiting 20 odd years for it. Count me in.
Nope, instead you get a Gift reissue CD that includes typos on the spine ("Gifte", "Sitterhood").

Re: Gift reissue plus extras

Was going to make the same point, what is there to re-master? It sounds fine as it is. It'll just end up being overcooked. Agreed. I recently blasted through this on earphones (files ripped from the original proper CD) and it sounded damn good. I wouldn't buy a remaster unless the sound was truly d...

Re: But Genevieve

I still maintain 'But Genevieve' is a chorus looking for a few verses rather than.a finished song. 'Show Me' would be a better song to release but might have airplay issues if such things are still considerations. That's a good call...maybe he had a full song and scrapped most of it for effect. It ...

Re: Why did they use an Oberheim drum machine for FALAA and not the old boss and who did that?

I think Claire was also responsible for triggering the Dr from the sound booth in the early days (ie: changing the tapes :lol: ) On a slightly related note, am sure I heard that in the early days she also used to manually adjust the echo on Eldritch's voice during songs - turning it up/down accordi...

In the Canadian interview from July 10, 1984 he talks quite a bit about it (the interviewer asks about using a drum machine, etc). He wanted a more advanced, programmable drum machine. He talks about being able to program some "leeway" ie can program it so it's not always "on the beat" thereby maki...

Re: "Kierkegaard meets Elvis"?

I don't know if the reference appeared before '91, but in RIP Magazine (July '91) the writer describes Eldritch as such a mix and then some: "Why worry about your profile? Why put out something simply for the sake of getting product out? Too many bands do that, largely to their detriment. Look here,...
