Re: Sisters 2024?

Anyone have a presale code for LA? Anyone going to be in LA for a pre gig drink? I’m so excited to finally be seeing them after 35 years of waiting (assuming I can get tickets this time). Not really expecting much TBH from what I can tell they sound s**t these days, but I gotta finally check it off...

Re: 2024-09-20: Radio City Music Hall, New York, USA

Pre/Post drinks: That part of town is a bit sh!t owing to its proximity to Times Square. Tentative proposal is Sean's Bar & Kitchen - decent beer/cider selection (anyone ordering Guinness n'Black is put on notice :D ), but open to other suggestions. When I saw The Cure there in 2008 I had pre s...

Re: "He's not been well"

I always enjoy seeing the Sisters in Leeds. Though it has got a bit posh! I remember when I first saw the Merrion Centre a million years ago and thinking that was very impressive. We didn't really have a history of shopping centres over our way for very obvious reasons. Leeds had good record stores ...

This Derry guy (ahem) thinks he was a bloody great songwriter. Rum, Sodomy and the Lash is a favourite album of mine. The romanticism of alcoholism and drug addiction is a sadly inevitable part of the eulogies. Addiction doesn't help genius despite what people say. Even the patron saint of poetic dr...

Re: Possible unreleased song album covers from Overboming

If I remember rightly, the tshirts were part of the rebrand, with new logo etc by Andrea White (if I've not forgotten her name). Of course, that design might've been used for a single but who knows? Apart from :von: obviously. :lol:

It's got a similar logo to the 2015 etc shirts with a list of cities except Nottingham for some reason which has Rock City. Maybe somebody got confused? ;-) There's also a hoody. Thanks to MH for the info.
