Patti Smith is maybe not that far fetched as Wayne is friends/friendly with Lenny Kaye..... he jammed on stage with The Mish on their first tour & Wayne is definitely a big Patti Smith fan & the Mish covered Dancing Barefoot.

Music publisher? That's what I thought too. I hadn't twigged there was a specific Sisters connection until I Googled and found the page on Discogs and it's all Sisters/Sisterhood and nobody else (apart from some group called Poesie Noire that I've never heard of, but closer inspection reveals they'...

I don't think it's a question of getting the money back T-H (that's a given) but more about getting the item back. From memory, you have a legitimate copy of the "Paris Riots" promo.
