Promotion for Wake

THE place for your Sisters-related comments, questions and snippets of Sisters information. For those who do not know, The Sisters of Mercy are a rock'n'roll band. And a pop band. And an industrial groove machine. Or so they say. They make records. Lots of records, apparently. But not in your galaxy. They play concerts. Lots of concerts, actually. But you still cannot see them. So what's it all about, Alfie? This is one of the few tightly-moderated forums on Heartland, so please keep on-topic. All off-topic posts will either be moved or deleted. Chairman Bux is the editor and the editor's decision is final. Danke.

Anybody any idea what month of 1985 this was released? And am I right in saying the US version didn't appear until 1987?

I seem to recall it was around the same time as Gift, cos I remember reading about both of them at roughly the same time.

I noticed the review from Smash Hits (?) but have never actually seen an advert with a confirmed date. Gift was January 1986 - so that's somewhat of a discrepency.

I watched a clip on www.youtube.com (which sadly I cannot find) that featured Von, circa 1985, introducing a clip from Wake, so there must have been television promos.

Yeah, I know that clip. I don't think it was actually made for Wake as such, but by WEA to promote the band in the Americas. But since it's available it must have been aired somewhere, sometime. I don't know. I could be wrong. But it's a funny little clip. Beard and hat and all.

I think that WEA (US) promo reel gets mentioned in the Heartland books. But I presume MR sent out letters or postcards to let the faithful know as some point?

The clip seems to be a little cut short, end and beginning. There used to be a tremendously dorky intro with bits of the Black Planet video and an announcer stating that the Sisters had had a good year that year. Which I guess depends on how you look at it. And the full introduction ends with the words "which was filmed in the very merry month of June". But good find nevertheless. Fun to watch.

I believe that is from the TV showing of wake. There was a weekly show that just showed live concerts etc. I know this because the first time I saw Wake it was taped off the TV by a lady that works at my college. I can't remember if that particular clip was from it.
Nationalise the f**king lot.
