NEW!? Album

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.

If :von: does have a new album ready to go, "as and when" and he has been touting the major record companys, won't this require demos to be pressed/burned onto a media format of one type of the other? How else can the new songs be demo'd to the A/R guys?........
Not as good as Motorhead, but better than The Birthday Party, which makes us pretty damn good.

If they still have a good friendship, that would be the best solution, VOn paying royalties to Adam, and then we are sure to have Summer in the album ;)

Well, I meant, does :von: need Adam's permission to release something Adam wrote? Or would he just have to pay royalties if he does so. The legal situation is unclear to me.

i know that he has had the new(?) song lyrics published by EMI, and that Adam only wrote the music to a couple of them.. Mike wrote the music to Susanne, but the music can be changed, like he has done with the older stuff.

don't even think about changing "Susanne" it's a perfect song and a done song, nothing to add nothing to odd.

I don't think the problem here is Mike though. Von's already given us a version of Susanne, so obviously Mike - even after his departure - is cool with that.

Mr Pearson needs to give his permission for the release of his songs. And regardless of being friends or not (friendship isnt a relevant legal matter in international law and even less in the music business :wink: ) a part of the royalities belong to Mr. Pearson. (it is not exactly Eldritch who would have to pay them though.)

what live shows are concerned, Eldritch can perform every song he likes, regardless of his author. It's called "covering".

The problem is, IMO, Von's desire to release recordings purely for $, rather than the simple pleasure of releasing recordings for the sheer merry hell of it ;) (allowing us the fans to buy enough copies to make the thing a hit and a $ earner anyway)

'spose it's hard to go back to the chemists once you've done Top of the Pops though!
