James Ray

Know the whereabouts of any ex-Sisters members or hangers-on? Got any amusing anecdotes about members of the band, past or present? Post 'em here...

Bloody Hell, I made that Poster with Microsoft Publisher version 1 for windows!!!!

Those were great gigs, but JR was well pissed up both nights.

I emailed tha happening just out of curiousity as to where he got the poster from. It was either In Resurrection in london or off the wall at the Mercat in birmingham, The Manchester date there was a proper poster done (that I have hung in my Hallway).

Those 2 gigs were fing ace!!!!!

that sounds about right for them... they always had a bizarre sense of humour, and an intense love of football :lol:

they were all mad man city fans, and i believe they changed their musical style dramatically a couple of years later and ended up a big-beat dance combo a la "bentleys rhythm ace", and have had one of their tracks played at maine road at half-time :lol:

I asked my friend who used to put bands on at the Mercat on a Saturday night about hosting a James Rays Gangawar gig. He'd already had a Gangwar gig about 1995 and a year later we had a mix of Gangwar / MK Ultra. If I remember rightly it was advertised as such on A4 flyers around Birmingham. I've still got all the flyers for the Mercats gigs including Matts
All Living Fear.
James Ray (Eric Mayfield) drank the whole rider (Newcastle Brown ale) before the show and he was really wasted before he and the band took to the stage. I remember it being very dark and they played Eddie Sedgewick amongst others.
Unfortunately I don't remember there being any merchandise as I always wanted a Gangwar shirt with the eagle on it from the sleeve of Dios Esta De Neustro Lado. I haven't seen them since.
James Ray occasionally crops up at Sisters shows in the audience.

Mr Ray, if you're reading this, daft question I suppose, but the guy who looked like you at the Joseph's Well Near Meth Experience gig last month was you wasn't it?

Edited due to broken time machine being fixed at some point in the future, resulting in an endless eddy in the very fabric of the space/time continuum.
