Re: Von interview courtesy of Mr Andrews...

I have a trick for smoking in hotel rooms. Go in the bathroom. Close the door, Run the shower hot until the bathroom is filled with steam. Have a cigarette. Leave the bathroom and close the door. The smoke particles merge with the steam droplets and condense. That takes most of the odour away. Do th...

Re: Eldritch is no longer funny

Yes, Mark, that interview was very refreshing to read. But I think my point still stands to a certain extent. It may be that, historically, Eldritch has had certain enemies/dislikes that he nevertheless felt had some perversely if not redeeming then dangerously attractive features. That's how I woul...

Eldritch is no longer funny

http://lurkingrhythmically.blogspot.com/2007/05/wit-and-wisdom-of-andrew-eldritch.html Classic 'old' Eldritch. Sick? Yes, that was the whole point. Remember his 'Heroes' in MM? Norman Tebbit, Klaus Kinski etc. - again sick but utterly hilarious. The last funny thing Eldritch did was 'War on Drugs'. ...

Re: NEW NEW SONG (On the Beach)

The mentions of rievers and borders makes me wonder if this is Von's take on the possibility of Scottish independence. If it is, the second last line could refer to either a binary choice (e.g. as presented in an independence referendum) or to echo the 'debris cut two ways' of Possession, notably a ...

Re: currently cutting a rug to

''You Want it Darker' by Leonard Cohen sounds very much like 'War on Drugs' by The Sisters. The key, the melody and the temperament are the same.

Re: Newly declassified Tsar Bomba footage

Apparently the parachute borked the Soviet nylon industry. Perhaps this says more about the state of that industry than the size of the parachute. There's an old CIA saying that the Russians would be unable to smuggle a suitcase nuke into the US because they would be unable to construct a functionin...

Some people get by with being able to quote huge tracts of their holy books. Impressive, but some people get by with being able to quote the entire Under the Gun lyric. :-)

Re: 40 best song lyrics...

Nice to see an appreciative entry for the Sisters. I particularly liked the observation that: "Ever better, and from the same Floodlands (sic) album was “This Corrosion” – a track more epic than watching all three Lord of the Rings movies from the top of Mount Everest." Still, IMO, 27 years on, Unde...

More seriously, all albums by Ladytron, The Eden House and Unloved. For some reason, I only wish to listen to music with female singers these days. Not quite sure what it is.

There must have been some kind of legal proceedings since, as far as I can recall, Eldritch won a certain amount in damages from the Hussey camp. Damned if I can remember how much it was.

It may be interesting to speculate on how things would have progressed had Eldritch continued with the name The Sisterhood. Perhaps very differently, perhaps exactly the same. That's a very interesting point to speculate on, Mark. After all he, won the court case and had proved his point. In a sens...

Not read any of this thread. Just read the title and chipping in with the opinion that The Sisters sounded their best live in '85. Not that I saw them then but do have the boots to prove it. Simple as that and my opinion on this is utterly inflexible. So there.

Sam, I would say the whole point of a joke is to subvert accepted moral standards, but not seriously, only in a 'sandbox', so to speak. It's a very interesting question as to why we would want to do this. Clearly there is something unnatural about being compelled to obey these moral standards. Other...

Here's the big one: was he wrong to have recorded and thus committed the history of this galaxy 'The Damage Done'?

My view on this is that was a price worth paying for the utterly bastard groovy 'Home of the Hitmen', but only just.
