Re: Interview with Kai in Music News June 16th 2024

Fair play to him. I gotta say, the idea of learning all the guitar parts to a sisters gig at three days notice using downloaded phone videos on Youtube Premium while sitting on a plane sounds like the stuff of nightmares to me. I would have thought the band would have at least clean soundboard stems...

Have I missed something or has NO video of this gig surfaced?

Re: Interview with Ben in Soundsphere. May 2024

Yes, that was a small but interesting change. The page has also been updated multiple times since then with new gig entries, etc. And that pic of Dylan is still there. Which I suppose is marginally better than just erasing him, Stalin-style, from history. His songwriting credits are still there too.

Re: Interview with Ben in Soundsphere. May 2024

A nice interview, but yeah, I know what you mean. Dylan coincided with the greatest period of productivity and creativity in 20 years. Possibly it had nothing to do with him, and he just happened to be around and this would have happened anyway. But if he WAS instrumental to it, then sadly the impli...

Life in the Stocks Podcast interview with Chris Catalyst

A nice interview with Chris C, a real gentleman.

Touches on Ugly Kid Joe, Ghost and of course, The Sisters of Mercy

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

I'm kinda scandalised at how much I paid for this gig. Two tickets cost me 250 dollars. I don't think I've ever paid that much to see ANY act anywhere.

I hope it's a decent gig.

Eh, 26 date North American tour for September through to October.

Looks like that stint of playing US gigs last year paid off. Some tour promoters' interest have clearly been piqued.

He really needs to look after himself. Eventually, there will be the last gig. I hope it's not for a long time, but it has to happen. In theory, it could have already happened. That would be a real shame, as man the last few years have been great. I think he should go spend six months building himse...

There is NOTHING more unprofessional than cancelling a show when the audience is already in the building, and apparently if I'm reading this right, an hour after the show was due to start. So something extreme has happened. So, and this is a weird thing to say, I hope he's ill (and of course that he...

Von did release some techno records in the mid-90s under pseudonyms. They sank without trace, confirming that people only wanted to hear from him under the banner of TSOM. He learned his lesson.
