Re: Sisters/Eldritch Synths

These days they're all running MacBooks, so it could well be Logic. Not 100% sure on that tbh. I can confirm Logic. Ben told me Dave's and Dylan's mastery of the software was crucial for putting the new songs together, so since they'll still sequence all stuff live, it's fair to assume they use it ...

Re: Sisters/Eldritch Synths

Not Logic, and unlikely to be soft synths back then. It would have been actual "hardware" synths - I recall hearing Eldritch had acquired a few over the years, and that he used to noodle around with them on his own in his spare time, which would also explain much of SSV too. In terms of sequencers, ...

Don't be too proud of this technological terror you've constructed. The ability to categorise Sisters bootlegs is insignificant next to the power of the Force.

Re: Geek Anvil (currently geeking...)

Started tidying up my Sisters bootleg collection in iTunes (or Apple Music, as it's now called) :D Tagged them all with the genre of "live", and have found that creating smart playlists which filter on the band name and the genre, combined with "album title contains [year]" breaks it down nicely, an...

Merciful Release logos through the years?

The old head and star has seen a few variants over the years... stars, cogs, half cogs, etc Also, it started as the logo for the record label, but over time become more of a band logo. (especially as there is no functioning MR record label anymore!) Has anyone documented how the MR logo has evolved ...
