Eureka Machines news

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.

(Can anyone else see Chris on fb? I saw his post that he would not be available for a while... but now he seems to have disappeared from fb as if he had deleted his account)

If I was to listen to Eureka Machines where would be a good starting point?

Been a fan of Chris's other band Scaramanga Six before I discovered the Sisters so want to see what these guys are like.

The Wardrobe eh ? Last band I saw play there was The Cure (I'll get my coat).
Great review of the gig here http://louderthanwar.com/andrew-wk-the- ... ve-review/
Must have been weird for CC to be supporting a guy called Andrew singing over a backing track.

I guess I'm the only one on here who doesn't particularly like EM. Each to their own.

There is the option to buy the cover of any song you like... :twisted:
What about if someone buys the cover of "Far Parade" from Sisters?? Are they gonna record it ? :innocent:

You're a funny man.
The most successful tyranny is not the one that uses force to assure uniformity but the one that removes the awareness of other possibilities, that makes it seem inconceivable that other ways are viable, that removes the sense that there is an outside.

I went to see them in Camden on Friday. Very much enjoyed the gig and Chris was in fine form.

Some idiot in front of me threw a plastic glass towards him and then stood up on his two mates shoulders, so which Chris said "What do you think this is, a Sisters of Mercy gig?"

I think they have some fantastic songs, champion the underdog is my fav, and chris was up for special chheers when he saw my shirt of the that platte during this years zurich show. The chris should make vocals more aggressive, than it would be even better and fit the music, choir work is awsome i have to admit
love is just a shot away
