Whatever your perspective on Bob Dylan, his new song released this morning deserves a listen. The more I hear it the more I hear and there are shades of Von's writing in their - or vice versa most likely - never really struck me before - but its startling here. Wonderful words for the strangest of t...
Thanks. I see â€œsame masterâ€� used for Were All Aware Of That. I was interested as someone had taken the time to register the test pressing at discogs. Plus you never know, the pressing might have been different quality wise. Andrew the 50 were done as white labels on black vinyl ahead of the pic...

firstly good luck on hitting the numbers - if I'm buying a copy for someone else - how do i get their name in the book listing?
I'm off to see the Furs on Friday and have not been as excited about seeing a band from my youth since Magazine reformed/played Oxford a few years ago. Which got me thinking, would Eldritch bother to see the Furs in 2018? no Ashton but his admiration for Butler's lyrics holds strong. Wonder how he ...
Thanks Flagg. cannot believe you want Brimstone :-) completists only - and yes that would include me! I'd have thought NRUB would be the oddest ask :) good point - NRUB has a certain charm, possibly due to the fact the guy that made that record put himself on the front cover! I'm talking about the ...
Over 34 years of collecting I have made the mistake of selling some of my records here and there, and maybe even losing a few to ex-girlfriends or in moves. I'd like to get these back if possible, so I thought I'd put up a list here. Yes I am nostalgic. If anyone has these items and is interested i...

... Stonehenge is probably the second ugliest Sisters bootleg I have. https://s9.postimg.cc/ohkve2rbj/Wwyv7_ET.jpg Oh yeah, that terrible outline font ... :lol: ... But now you've made me curious. So, which is the ugliest one in your collection? Pschedelic Sessions 1986? Harsh, the end result is wa...
That's funny you reference the Talking Heads, Randall. I always thought would be a particularly good tune for the Sisters to cover. Especially a version like this... a la "I Was Wrong". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MYJWq9Jtf94 agreed, great song - I'd always imagined the Sisters covering 'Life D...
Studio sessions certainly - but don't believe many of the live ones came from the band.. other than one or two notable exceptions.Swinnow wrote:I seem to recall some of the early tapes coming from sources very close to the band, very close indeed.
As for Paul's tapes, nearer the bar than the band
:lol: yeah, Shakey Paul - it's definitely the same guy ;D I knew someone would know who I meant. :D TBH I'm surprised (albeit happy) to hear that Paul is still with us - figured his lifestyle back in the day was not conducive to a life of crosswords in front of the fire with a mug of Yorks Tea. So ...
This takes me back - I knew Paul as Shakey Paul from Record Fairs back in the day (Griffin, Astoria, The One Out near Roundhay Park and others). Last saw him at The Ritz gig in Manchester 85 (we were supposed to be giving him a lift) - not sure to where as we lived in different cities - but out of M...

..for as long as folk by tickets. Most folk buy tickets now for nostalgia reasons - the rare night out, reliving their youth, chance to catch up with old mates - not because the girls are a meaningful band. So long as Von has bills to pay to support his lifestyle there will always be gigs but don;t...
