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.

Don't think there exist a good low gen of Oxford, every copy I ever came across sounds a bit wonky

I'd also love to finally get a good sbd version.
The two tracks on the grief lp are much better then any full sbd tape transfer i have, and among my all time favs from early 84

I generally don't mind audience recordings at all. I find it quite charming. At least when they manage to capture that special little thing.

Also I'm from a punk atmosphere so "lo-fi" sound quality isn't something that bothers me :lol:

If anyone has any kind of rips of soundboard or audience recordings it would make me happy if someone shared. Sadly I don't have anything to trade since my collection is all physical. Some day it would be great to have all bootlegs as mp3's but that for a later date...

"Feel No Pain - The SSV Project" as a vinyl picture disc...
I already had the CD, and now bought the record on discogs. Depending on my mood, I actually enjoy it. If :von: had the intention of producing the worst record of all times for his friends at Time Warner, he failed. It´s not that bad, and even has some (though few) good moments.
Anyway, the successor, the announced if-Trump-becomes-president-album should be ready for release now, right? ;D

Yeah, I used to rip a lot of CDs, vinyls and cassettes years ago. Now I don't have a decent enough computer or the time to do it :-/

Oh! And I found a that Baktabak interview on CD the other day for a steal so had to buy it. The guy wouldn't sell it if I didn't buy the "a tribute to sisters" CD (bleeeuurghh) and Gift as well in a bundle. Since it was no money at all I just bought 'em all (£5). To my surprise when I got home the Gift CD was not the same pressing I already had and was not on Discogs or THE Wiki either. It's missing the "made in Austria" part on the back. Most probably nothing rare at all but here it is anyway for all you completionists out there: https://www.discogs.com/release/10642771

A friend gave me a gift a month ago but haven't had time to open it until a couple of days ago. Turns out it was Sisters related :von:

The review is already translated on the Wiki (https://sisterswiki.org/Fri,_17-May-1985) but I'll post this image anyway.

I was gifted an original Sisters pin badge as a Get Well pressie. Far better than a bunch of flowers.

I'm made up (Scouse for delighted) because I have no idea what happened to my original badge or the necklace.

I can totally relate to the "shut the f**k up" part. I hope it works on people around you! :lol:
I have however never liked that logo. Ughh. That needs a separate thread actually...

Without checking I don't know if I sold my copy on ebay or not :oops:
There was a hooded version as well, which I believe I still have.

Hihi ... it is in fact your picture, but not your shirt ... :D ... do you know what year it was distributed? 2003? 2006? Or 2008? I think during an US-Tour ...
