Does exactly what it says on the tin. Some of the nonsense contained herein may be very loosely related to The Sisters of Mercy, but I wouldn't bet your PayPal account on it. In keeping with the internet's general theme nothing written here should be taken as Gospel: over three quarters of it is utter gibberish, and most of the forum's denizens haven't spoken to another human being face-to-face for decades. Don't worry your pretty little heads about it. Above all else, remember this: You don't have to stay forever. I will understand.

Absolutely one of my all-time favorite bands. I don't think they ever quite got the respect they deserved. I think she's a great singer and an extremely gifted songwriter, and Jim Mankey's one of my favorite guitar players. First thing I ever learned to play on the bass was "Bloodletting," actually (which is not really an accomplishment, as it is very easy).
You're not wrong. I think God Is Bullet has one of the most beautifully filthy bass riffs I've ever heard.
In fact, the whole song is beautifully filthy.
Cheers.

My biggest music regrets: never seeing Concrete Blonde live, never seeing the Ramones, and missing out on Billy Joe Shaver's final tour. I never really got to see Motörhead either (I had tickets, but a massive pileup in Dallas meant I got to the venue just in time to hear the last half of the final song).
The most successful tyranny is not the one that uses force to assure uniformity but the one that removes the awareness of other possibilities, that makes it seem inconceivable that other ways are viable, that removes the sense that there is an outside.

I missed out on them too.
But I think Johnette's voice would have melted me on the spot had I seen them

I watched some of the sets from the Great Escape festival last night. Primarily for Hanya & Bleach Lab (who were both great). But this lot really caught my attention.

Was listening to Pearl Jams 11th and latest album (Gigaton, 2020).

I didn't love it, but it did make me wonder whether it's better to be a fan of a band that releases similar albums every couple years versus, say, a certain other band's approach: hardly any albums, but all great stuff with a widely varying sound.

What's it like for hardcore Pearl Jam fans? Are there subtle variations in the 90s-studio-rock sound that you go wild for every 2y when the new album goes up on Spotify?

Yeah I had a similar conversation the other day with one of my friends: what's it like to be a fan of a band who actually release music? ;D

PJ are releasing it, but it's all sounded exactly the same (to me) for 30 years now. Is that better or worse? I am undecided and would like a viewpoint from someone not traumatised by waiting on TSOM

Do people not think some of these bands have simply released too much music ? , as much as I'd love a new Sisters album there catalogue of songs is just enough for me , can think of bands I loved when young who should have knocked it on the head years ago , Maiden , Depeche Mode etc .

This & the first volume are great collections of cover versions. Bonus: completely free to download on their bandcamp

NMA - One of the very few bands that rarely disappoint.
