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.

Surly? Not at all. I just don't see the point of 'tribute' acts nevermind a poor covers band with a vocalist seemingly intent on murdering The Sisters' back catalogue. I was going to use the word masterbation but that may have sounded surly.

You definitely have a point but I would make a distinction between tribute/cover bands in it for the money and a group of fans merely having fun - where's the harm in that ? Especially as there is an invitation to heckle if you don't like it !

It's the internet. Everyone's entitled to their opinion.

He cares enough to comment, if only our fans would do the same!

well firstly they are a tribute band to the Sisters, secondly if our boss didn't want it in here it would have been moved ages ago & thirdly don't worry your mind about it, a wise person once said, "if you have nothing nice to say then just shut the f**k up".

oh & moses, not all of us feel the same sentiments as you do.
here we go again....

Because Sisters Chat is all about The Sisters and what some of their fanbase make of it - in this case also beyond chatting? ... :wink: ...
