to be honest I think most of the mistakes were due to Von, who seems as rehearsed and fired up as the rest of the band this time around. Maybe the new songs sparked a renewed enthusiasm in him for the band, or Sisters Creative Time doubled as rehearsals. He did bungle the words a bit on the 2019 tou...

Julia McLean answering to Mirjam Hartstra : "... the band only found out last night too. That's the last one until "after the zombie apocalypse"..." So that is official? And reliable? that might be based on Von mumbling something about the last time... pretty much ever during NTTC https://www.youtu...

Tour is done. Notts is the last gig Is this definitel? Honestly it does seem sensible. I think I'll try to head home today if so. maybe someone should try to confirm with Ben or something before jumping the gun.

Lovely how the sentiment seems to echo First and Last and Always but this time in the plural including the rest of the boys.

At least assuming it's about the Sisters.

I think it might also be

Either way, either way boys
Heave away, that's what you do (too?)
(or you two do?)

Love this song, I thought it was just "either way" repeated but "heave away" makes a lot of sense.

Don't quote this but I think there was another occasion when Gibson mentioned the Sisters and Nick Cave, saying something to the effect that he admires them and would love to write something as good as one of Cave's albums (Let Love In maybe?) I can't find it now though. Would anyone happen to have ...

I like it! It could do with more natural singing (like most Sisters covers that lean towards the goffick) but it's a good take on the instrumental imo.

If I want to put three or four of us in the same room for 9 months and spend a lot of money and energy on a record, it kind of behoves me paying those people for being there, adding their talent and their skill and their nervous energy and lack of being with a girlfriend or boyfriend.

What I find most intriguing is this: We finished the music [to Far Parade] (which was really great, we used to soundcheck with it) and Andrew finished the words but never seemed to want to sing them.

It does make me chuckle slightly when I occasionally see my name as a reason for the Sisters not doing new music, when in the 15 years I’ve spent with TSOM I wrote for about 15 albums. He is hurt and I understand him, but no one has said HE stood in the way of new songs, not directly anyway. We a...

My favourite part about this clip it's seeing Ben playing the main riff of 'Show me' during 6 bars instead of a riff he has been playing for the past 10 years now, but it's less common on this tour(Suzanne); at 0:17 he's like 'something doesn't seem right about that' :lol: For all the heartlanders ...

Two of my videos: Alice https://youtu.be/-6JwCpXfO3s Instrumental https://youtu.be/Kt9jFDvC240 Storming, and the last two gigs Ben has played new solos during the instrumental, maybe he's improvising one each night now? Really lifts the song in any case. Thanks to everyone for updates and videos!
