Re: This Corrosion - All versions?

Wait. Are you saying the original CD single is rare? If so I'll have to get to my mates houses and hoover them up 😂 Yeah. I suppose the existence of the German version has devalued it, but completists would still want the original, I guess. Oh and on the wiki, the record number is given as MR 039 e...

Re: This Corrosion - All versions?

https://sisterswiki.org/This_Corrosion_(single) As we have been confirmed through thorough research from the fanbase, the release date for the UK issues was definitely September 14th, 1987. That's wrong. (I made notes in a diary at the time.) (I'll copy & paste what I just wrote on the facebook grou...

Re: Sisters spotting

"Sisters of Mercy" was one of the answers in a question on yesterdays episode of The Chase, but in connection with the holy order not the band. Unfortunately it was the winning answer in that round so there was no opportunity for The Governess to chime in with some additional info.

Re: How Long After Hours

The only version of Afterhours is the one on MR029T. All the others are fake. They're copies of the record, some are poor quality because of too many generations, others maybe have EQ or have been artificially extended by repeating parts of it. Yep. I have at least one bootleg where the tape is cle...

I'd say late 1990/early 1991. He says he's going to Las Vegas to shoot a video for next single "Detonation Boulevard". It wasn't a single in the UK bit there are US promo discs listed on discogs for 1990. Also mentions of the Gulf War which was end of 1990 into the first few months of 1991. And he s...

Now the rest of the songs are up on Spotify, Itunes, Qobuz... Quite Annoying that they got the names of the songs mixed up, lack of respect. Odd that multiple services mixed up the titles?

It's worth bearing in mind that BBC radio now has a 320kbps stream available, so any future rebroadcast will go right up to around 22k rather than cutting at 16k. (Although it'll still be f***ed with a broomhandle as far as dynamic range is concerned.)
