Sisters hit the catwalk again. Von did not approve.

Re: Rise and Reverberate - the term

I found a couple references in obscure literature. 1. Anais Nin , a "French-Cuban-American diarist, essayist, novelist and writer of short stories and erotica." This is from one of here diaries I think: “I don't hear your words: your voice reverberates against my body like another kind of caress, an...

Re: Eldritch-isms

Bruhn was quite diplomatic when this community asked him : HL: Is Eldritch actually as good a guitarist (sitting down anyway) as people seem to think? Bruhn: When I was with the band, he could not provide an eight-minute guitar solo while lying on his back, but a rhythm guitar portion without any pr...

Re: far parade - the term

I suppose there's a couple other parallels in that poem:

Code: Select all

BOOK, lie you there: such borrowed wings                       ::             No-one reads the book of lies 
watching well Their heroes' powers                             ::             From heroine to heroin
But also, lots that isn't.

Re: NEW SONGS!

I think they’d sound brilliant on record. I think we’d see a lot more in the songs than we’ve seen already. They’d be cracking! I'd like to agree, but I think that to sound great on a release the songs would need to be "finished" as suggested by Catalyst in that recent interview. Think about the di...

Re: Sisters spotting

I second the "add a bassist" theme. Ain't gonna happen though. Those bass sounds (and the Doktors percussion sounds) are the result of thousands of hours of Eldritch twiddling the knobs until they now sound exactly precisely how he wants them. They're like his effing offspring. You gonna ask a guy t...

I'm hoping someone will put together a compilation of the best sounding versions of the new songs from the past couple of years. I have basically done this, as no doubt many who are OC about their mp3 collection have. I can share but it's nothing more than downloaded mp3's from Youtube. Not super s...

Aren't there some soundcheck recordings of those numbers? Easy to pass off as an "instrumental demo".

Re: Creatures of Tinsel and Gauze...

T-shirts with lyrics from songs that will never be released, maybe never even heard live.

I guess it's appropriate for a Sisters fan, surprised it's taken this long actually.
