As per the message in the 80-85 FB Group: when we get to 25% funded, I will post an update on the Unbound page. This will be in the form of a little sample from the book.

I would dearly love the hard back, but those shipping prices look really off to me. Do you have any friends or family in the UK that could maybe order it for you....? Such a shame if you miss out :( I do, but I don't want to impose. Besides, the Black November thing won't be open to them. So unless...

Update on shipping costs. Unbound had changed their carrier but not updated their page. That's being done now. £14+ is NOT the charge to deliver in Europe. This is still a tracked and signed service, reducing the change of First Editions going missing A list of some European countries' P&P is below...

SISTERS for Hellfest 22/6/19

As a young a foolish man, he was often on record as a Francophobe - hence my jibe. Once upon a time his prefered map of Europe had France (and Norway!) removed. That stuff hasn't aged well, so it's good to see those days are a long way behind him and the band, proud Europeans all. Actually, I don't ...

OK, to be strictly accurate ... Eldritch is going to lose his s**t when he finds out he's been booked to play in France for the 4th time in 38 years.

Ian Astbury's mentions The Sisters on TV-AM, 1985!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VtpVnYpPv6Q (about 5.15 in) Maybe this link is elsewhere in this Forum, but this whole segment just seems so, so bizarre now. Astbury and Lemmy were the reason Wayne vomited himself virtually inside out before the Albert Hall gig; so peculiar to hear Astbury giving so...

Solved. Extraordinary work - an obit on the website of a news agency in Argentinian city in the foothills of the Andes! Seems Pedro Moncada passed away just over three years ago.
