Latest Sisters purchase

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.

Prices on EBay are currently completely out of control. However, 2 new additions to my collection:

- Victim of Circumstance 7" tp, only 2 made (I always wanted that one) :D
- Silence is Platinum 7" tp of red gatefold sleeve, unnumbered

Absolutely. The prices have reached a new extreme ...

Congrat, however ... :notworthy: ... within your collection they should be in a good home ... :D ...

Ah, splendid! :notworthy: Didn't find this thread when I did a search. :roll:

Found a few more bootlegs during the week. Will post them when I have more than 5 minutes at home... sigh.

And I'm sure I've got the same concert as on "Stranger" on another bootleg. Need to do some scrolling through the old Wiki... :roll:

perhaps on CD ... :lol: ... easily check out the concert date ... http://sisterswiki.org/Mon,_29-Apr-1985 ... :) ...

However, I think the Strangers bootleg is a most pretty one, and that interview picture disc anyway ... ;D ...

also, these official longbox versions are not easy to find, distrubuted only in the US! ... Congrats! ... :notworthy: :notworthy: ...



Err, and to give it another try in this old thread ... although many picture in here
have a) disappeared or are b) no longer visisble for me ...

my most recent purchase was one of these ... maybe an act of mere stubbornness ... ;D ...

OK, and this ... just because it is a very recent one with a recent recording at a very normal price ...

Yeah. had a peak there. I seemed to recognize some of the background chatter but my mind was probably playing tricks on me...

I was surprised and VERY happy to find the longboxes. Thought I'd never get to see one yet alone own TWO of them... :eek:

Theses Russian flexis...I hate them. Haha. There's been a bunch made for Sonic Youth as well (which is the other thing I collect besides Sisters) and I refuse to buy them. Haha.

A lovely collection ... :D ... which is the black one in the middle of the lower row? Silence Is Platinum?

I have recently found some old mags with interviews and other stuff :
Musician Feb 88 / Record Mirror Feb 88 / NME Dec 90
as well as GPS03 and Heartland Issue 3

For those who might enjoy, the interviews, GPS03 and some excerpts from Heartland Issue 3 can be found here ...

Holy moly. The Sister Ray cover on this one is fantastic. Never REALLY liked it before but this pushed me over. Is there anyone here with the Oxford CFE 1984-05-18 gig in a more listenable format and willing to share? ;-)
