Paint My Name In Black and Gold: The Next Phase

The make-or-break meeting with Unbound the prospective publisher of "Paint My Name In Black and Gold" has taken place. It was an email exchange actually. They are feeling very positive. Essentially, the book is now very likely to fund. 70%+ makes the project feel much more like a reality than a poss...

2nd Album Demos Playback Event: 27 April 18.00 (CET)

I don't really have a strong opinion on these either way. As a Sisters fan they're probably almost as important a document of that era as the This Corrosion demos, but unlike the latter, these songs obviously never did make it to a Sisters release and therefore don't offer a different or interestin...

We will also play the instrumental 'home demos' made by Wayne for the 2nd album. These are the ones Andrew turned down in Hamburg. Other than one track, these are not widely known at all. In fact, except for a few people these have remained secret for 34+ years. This playback is with Wayne's permis...

It reached 366 backers and 63% i see :bat: That is 40+ backers in a 3-4 days as i can recall from last visit. £459 in one day. Very important. Over £2,500 in Feb, since I made it clear that if people don't pledge, the crowdfunding will get pulled and there will be no book. That momentum will be i...

SOCIAL MEDIA SHARE DAY: 16 FEB This idea comes from the great Sisters researcher and blogger Nikolas Vitus Lagartija (see earlier in this thread). 16 Feb is the day appointed by the band as their birthday. On that day in 1981 they played their first concert. This year The SIsters will therefore be 3...

@mandrews How about having a social media share day (a digital "Rise and Reverberate", if you will) on Sisters' Day (16th Feb), where we all share a link to your page on social media on their own wall and in groups which they belong to on the same day to give the book a boost. You've already added ...

@ Mark - I know John well - if you're still interested (you're probably not :lol: ) I can give him a nudge...? Please do give him a nudge. Basically, I'll write him a feature/interview or two for no payment - the standard LTW deal. These don't have to be Sisters-related. And in return LTW mentions ...

Knock out a few more tempting anecdotes. Drop the Craig/Wayne items on Mish related boards or Troublebook groups and aim the Gunn/Marx ones at the more fundamentalist sites like here, and the previously used Sisters FB sites. I can't recall seeing any info about the possibility of the book in a mai...

Can you give more infos about the "curated playlist"? I just hesitate between 2 options... thanks ! I will chose songs that make me think of Leeds and The Sisters - some will be fairly obvious (i.e. Sisters' songs; Gang of Four; Mekons, Lorries etc), some less obvious but Sisters related (Elgar, Ph...

So 50% has just been reached by 299 supporters of the book. I'm grateful to them all. Really grateful. But can we get to 100%?
