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.

Eventually found one ... ;D ;D ;D ... and at a very reasonable price ... ;D ;D ;D ...
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 ...
I think I saw one on the merch stand on the Exxile tour back in 2001.

finally got myself an official copy of the Gift CD. i've got 2 copies of the vinyl, and a few different cd-rip cd-rs so it wasn't an urgent indulgence but £35 is as cheap as i've seen it lately and theyre only going to get dearer. although its marked as VGC+ its mint as far as i can see. 8)

EDIT: i never claimed to be a photographer... :innocent:

Assuming it qualifies as a Sisters purchase - 2000AD Prog 666, inspired by the following post in Joke Of The Day

Not really a 'purchase' since I got it for free from one of the shops I frequent. Guessing this is from some Vision Thing release or maybe some promo thing? Or is it really official?

Got these two at a concert/record buying trip.
They had 2 or 3 Good Things 7"s as well, haha.

Stonehenge is probably the second ugliest Sisters bootleg I have.

Oh yeah, that terrible outline font ... :lol: ...

But now you've made me curious. So, which is the ugliest one in your collection? Pschedelic Sessions 1986?

This one is sooo ugly in my opinion:

But looking at it again makes me wonder if the Stonehenge one maybe is the uglier one...

Harsh, the end result is was not quite right but the effort that went into that sleeve was a real labour of love.

1. chisel Black October logo onto a rock face by hand.
2. paint on flammable liquid gel into carved element
3. set fire to it
4. take pics
