Interview with Carl McCoy!

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.

Weeeeeee!! Delilah will you show the interview review then, somewhere in the net?
Well I dunno what to ask, I guess in your 60 questions everything important is already included... but how about this: Carl, how many hats do you have? How old is the oldest hat? :D

nice 8)

who are the "ghost musicians" on the new album?

what's his relationship like with tony these days? and how does he feel about NFD being "neff by numbers", and using all tony's best basslines?

Where did you get that hat?
Where did you get that tile?
Isn't it a nobby one,
And just the proper style?
I should like to have one
Just the same as that!
Where'er I go they shout! "Hello!
Where did you get that hat?"?

Ask him what he thinks about Zechariah Sitchin's ideas about the biblical Nefilim being in fact an alien race, "the Annunaki".

Ask him if he's ever going to write a song with proper lyrics instead of the garbled nonsense he's written up til now (nice tunes, though).

Ask him why he used backing tapes and guitar samples at the live gigs in 2000 - why didn't he just get a second guitarist?
Is he going to do a proper tour this time instead of a handful of half-arsed european festival appearances?
Why has the new album taken so looong?

- Which would he recommend?

- Did he appear on Mini Pops?

- Why has he got so much hair in his 40's when I'm bald as a coot in my early 30's?

- Is he glad Kevin Blackwell has gone for a 4-4-2 formation this season with Healy and Hulse/Blake?

- Can I have a free autographed copy of Mourning Sun? :wink:

To give him some credit, I don't know of any other lyricist who's managed to put together a song about being sexually abused by a poltergeist.

I have a friend who is heavily into the mythology side of the Nephilim so i am going to ask her if she has any interesting questions!

Is it true that he made his hat by grafting a tophat crown to a stetson rim?

If/when he does a proper tour, will their be a live dvd released?

What projects has he been working on with Sheerfaith?

Is this release under the name 'The Nephilim' or 'Fields of the Nephilim'?

ask him if it's true that he splitted FotN and decided to play Death Metal from now on after the drummer of Morgoth gave him a few of their records.

2019 - London London Brussels Brussels Stockholm Paris Utrecht
2020 - Leeds & Nottingham, so far anyway. And Frankfurt. And Manchester with huge thanks to Gothicbiff

Ask him if he's still a miserable wee sod, and if he's still pissed off at LOUD being WAAYYYYY better than them on the "For Her Light" tour, and if he would thank Tony for all the sandwiches we blagged of him :innocent:

FOTN is site advertisement, sleeve art and SPV info are any indication.

AFAIK he's still with his long term partner, Lynn, who does the caligraphy
for the Neph/Sheer Faith.

And now I've done those questions, a couple of my own:

What is his opinion on the work/theories of John Dee?

Is he still in contact with Storm Constantine?

Does he plan to do anything official with the "Fallen" demos?

How about a gig in Scotland?

Have to say I wasn't impressed by Loud at all...

And as someone with a short inside leg measurement myself, I'd just like
to add, hey, I resemble that remark! :wink:

They did support NMA, but only once if I remember correctly, in Bradford Queens Hall, again, if I remember correctly.
