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...

PRESS RELEASE

Anne-Marie Hurst

Ghost Dance / Skeletal Family

Return of Influential Queen from the Vanguard of “Old Skool� Goth Rock.

After playing what was to unknowingly be her last major public performance with Ghost Dance in Amsterdam, December 4th 1989, and a hiatus from performing of almost 20 years. Lead vocalist Anne-Marie Hurst is back!!!

A chance meeting last year with Stan Greenwood (Guitarist with Skeletal Family, Anne-Marie’s band prior to Ghost Dance) led to discussions regarding the possibility of the pair working together again. The idea being, to simply write and play new material in an atmospheric, acoustic setting.

Early 2009 saw the pair participating in numerous rehearsals / song writing sessions, leading to a collection of songs the duo were eager to perform.

Fast forward to April 2009…… At a front room party session, in front of a handful of old friends, the new acoustic material was premiered to surprising outstanding applause.

The problem then lay, what to play next? Despite an initial unwritten agreement between the pair that no Skeletal Family / Ghost Dance material was to be involved, suggestions led to an attempt on a few of the old numbers. Despite not playing them together for 25 years, the reaction from both audience and performers alike to the ramshackle renditions was amazing.

Inspired, and cajoled by the favourable response, a rehearsal was set up with drum machine and bass sequencer. Due to a combined bout of technophobia and impatience this was quickly jettisoned in favour of human musicians.

The result, a four piece guitar band, playing songs from both Ghost Dance & Skeletal Family that have not been aired for two decades, plus new original material.

Anne-Marie is again eager to perform in front of audiences, and as such is in the process of arranging live performances for Autumn 2009.

With a back catalogue of three studio albums, numerous compilation cd’s and a plethora of top independent charting singles, including “Promised Land�, “The Grip Of Love�, and “River Of No Return�, an influential queen from the vanguard of “Old Skool� Goth Rock returns.

This may be a good time to ask if anyone has a copy of the rereleased Gathering Dust on CD that they'd be willing to share? :)

Update from Anne-Marie


"Rehearsals going well. Both old and new material is sounding good.

I have just recruited Eddy Kellet on guitar / keyboards to fill out the sound, and I'm in the middle of finding a bassist.

UK dates are in process of being finalised for late October / early November 2009.

Below are three new photos taken last Saturday at rehearsals (thanks Mel and John!) Am extremely pleased with the results. More shots will be uploaded soon.

I'll also soon be uploading a couple of videos from that session to my Youtube channel, including a clip of "A Deeper Blue", ...and also one of the new tracks!

Speak soon,
Anne-Marie."
