The Marching Men - First Gig

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.

Three Heartlanders, one drum machine, and some very familiar songs.

Kudos to James Blaaast! for the kicking logo and Phono_Paul for booking us (albeit in utterly blind faith).

If you can't make the girls' gigs, and you're in the area, why not pop down? Even if you don't like the music, Weebles' heckling will be entertainment enough.

Syberberg is our current Nurse. You'll have to enquire but currently we're using (quiet voice) a faux-drum machine, namely a lot of Reason programming, and whatever CD player we can find.

Thanks for posting the link Barry - for some reason, the forums wouldn't accept my links at all. Related to using https:// perhaps?

Reason is brilliant! We're using Reason 5 at the moment, the sounds are excellent!

Drums, bass and everything else are done in Reason and then transferred to a BR-1180 for live playback after some tweaking in Sonar. We only use the CDs for (target) practice.

Wall? What wall? I couldn't possibly comment Herr Blast. :lol: And thanks for doing the artwork, most appreciated :notworthy:
