And set list and encores mixed up. Tonight seemed mucb better paced than last night, particularly storming Domini...

Re:filming. The Glasgow gig was basically a warm up gig for the tour, perhaps the band didn't want footage of possible forgotten verses , bum notes and sound problems circulating. More likely Von had a bad hair day. In fairness, there's no reason a jobsworth loves to give for running someone else b...

Wow. That's pretty impressive setlist! Love that Valentine and Summer are back and 1959/ Jihad?!?! Roll on Leeds! Just goes to show that while the girls might not be releasing records they still aren't just a pure nostalgia show (...and yes i am aware of the irony in claiming that playing songs that...

A bit dissappointed with this. Have been getting all the Velvets deluxe boxsets over the last few Christmass & would have hoped for more. The album and the ep's is just a missed opportunity. Why not throw in a few demo's/out-takes alternate mixes, and maybe Tiffanies or the RAH? As someone said, if ...

Fabulous find!

Whatever about the merits or reasons, it's funny to see that if you replace the attitude about doing gigs to releasing records, very little has changed over the intervening years!

While I have loved every incarnation of the band, to me the greatest incarnation is Gary, Craig & Benn. But without Mr Marx - there is nothing.

rumours and speculation

It's crashing hard on the end of Feb and there hasn't been any gig speculation? (Or was it somewhere else and i missed it?)

I doubt there'll be a significant tour (at least i Europe) but maybe the odd Belgian, German or further afield festival would be nice...

Any know or at least care to guess?!

Yes, I understand that. Actually the Sisters also compose some new music (though not very often) and they play it live… exclusively live. I’ve been thinking about it recently… e.g. DM releases a new album every 4th year with, let's be honest, 2 good songs, otherwise they live from the songs o...

I tend to lurk rather than post here, but its clear from lurking for a while that the fans over 44 who knew the Sisters when they were a functioning band pre Floodland are consistently disappointed by the current product, where as the younger fans are pretty happy. Not saying one is wrong or right,...
