Re: Some Kind Of Demos

my 2c: I like cover versions in general, and TSOM covers in particular, but I can understand people who don't. Forsner's are some of the better covers IMO and I have enjoyed these ones. I can see how moving past YT to paid streaming services strikes an off note even if it's legal (and let's be hones...

Re: Interview with Ben in The Rockpit June 2022

So you have these songs where the production is huge but the song is terrible
As opposed to the current Sisters "YouTube Album" ... good music, f**king terrible production.

Re: NEW SONGS!

my prediction: The tour continues on 2 July with the new songs gone from the set. Existing recordings of the new-new songs being performed now mysteriously feature the band covering I Wanna Be Sedated, Police Car, Gimme Gimme Gimme, and a few mildly exciting new covers. Only HL denizens remember the...

Re: NEW SONGS!

there has never been a better time for independent artists. Just look at all the band building their brands and followings on BandCamp, selling vinyl, cassettes, cool collectibles, merch, NFTs, making their money out of that, and from playing live. All direct to the fans, no middlemen, no cuts. Tha...

Re: 'She's A Monster' is a good song

Should have drunk-posted the lyrics on the website like the others. Caligula has a lotta words and is doing ok.

Markov chain can not work in case of :von: because he adds all the time song after song new elements in his lyrics. or am i wrong? :)
Never fear, ROBOVON changes all the lyrics every time I run it.

Comes with a guarantee that the lyrics are 100% correct in at least one parallel universe.

Re: No Covers in the new sets

That's not really how it goes, giving ground was recorded by band called the sisterhood, while rest are by TSOM, line-up has nothing to do with this. The recording copyright, sure. But the composition copyright is separate from that. Both attract royalties. https://assets.website-files.com/6054f29c...

Re: No Covers in the new sets

Giving Ground has a "music&words: Eldritch" credit. In fact of the whole current set only Marian (Hussey/Eldritch) and More (Steinman/Eldritch) credit people who are not in the current lineup. And I think a couple of the gigs have skipped Marian too? Not that I'm an expert on music rights but I imag...

Re: "Sisters, 2022 edition'

To play devils advocate for a sec, haven't we been here before? Take the Leeds gig on 27 April 2003 - I count 9 unreleased songs (including Top Nite Out) in the set of 21. It's basically "peak Pearson". I wasn't frequenting this forum at that point, but surely the feeling must have been similar euph...
