Re: Forty years ago tonight...

Arigato Nikolas for still doing Your Blog. I suppose much was said with recent books but You still find some gaps to fill. Thank you! I took a break for the blog whilst awaiting publication of the excellent biographies by Trevor and Mark, but am back to researching the trainspotter detail of old re...

Forty years ago tonight...

... TSOM were originally due to have shared a stage with both The Birthday Party and Southern Death Cult (a non-event covered on the latest post on my TSOM blog https://sistersfan.blogspot.com/2022/04/goth-heaven-nick-cave-ian-astbury-and.html . This got me thinking - what has been the best line-up ...

Re: Dutch interview, April 2022

An interesting read, thanks for sharing. I love the fact that the interviewer, on hearing Von claim that The Sisters are "The Best New Band In Belgium", almost immediately asks if he's heard of Whispering Sons! Until he releases studio versions of some of the new songs, I would also have Ground Nero...

Seems they've been around a while but oh boy the new single is stupidly good
Certainly catchy with that bass riff at the beginning having a familiar tone! Overall it's like a grunge Throwing Muses.

Re: New music discoveries

For the past few years I've been writing a (second) blog devoted to new music, but as it's mainly goth/post-punk it probably won't be of interest to TSOM fans ( - not entirely a tongue-in-cheek comment, as I know many here have very broad taste).

Re: Paint My Name In Black and Gold: The Next Phase

Fantastic Prologue, amazing new fact in the first line, the first of many. Would love to see a photo of that unusual coffee table! I'd never realised before today that the other member of Craig's short-lived post-Expelaires pre-Sisters project was the same guy who DJed at Le Phono in the early 80's ...

You guys just come off as very judgemental.

Elitism isn't dead. Whilst I would agree with both you an...

Re: Totally Insane fb

The thing that gets me down the most about the FB group is that you're guaranteed that someone will post one of the (very small number of) official Sisters videos. Every. Single. Day. Does any of them think that they're sharing something new? What is the point? Heellloooo Sisterrssss !!! Ultimately...

I noticed that, looks like Von got a bit bored by it and stomped off too. Cheeky remark to open Train too. Aye, that was the bit I wanted to see, as from his comments it was clear that he was getting fed up with Wayne hogging the limelight. I wrote about it a few years back on my blog piece on this...

Re: It was thirty years ago today...

Strange that this anniversary has approached and passed with almost no fanfare. No 30th anniversary boxed set, no "The Making Of..." classic album documentary. But for many Sisters fans around the world, particularly in Latin America where the goth torch still flickers, this is THE Sisters album. Ha...
