Sisters spotting

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.

Interesting to have his influences plainly displayed. Must admit that NWOBHM style guitaring leaves me a bit cold. It's too flash, never mind the quality look at the number of notes kind of thing, lacks feel and emotion. As Phil Lynott said to me in Manchester, on the Renegade tour, sometimes the space between the beat is as important as the beat. He knew a thing or two that fella.
saying that Lizzy did more for the twin-lead sound than anyone else. after TL's entire out put post Eric Bell its the trooper & thats it for me.

I'd partially agree, certainly the John Sykes period had one foot in the 'heavy metal' camp, but by then the class A's had taken their toll on Lynott and Gorham in particular and they had taken their eyes off the ball, plus management changes had occurred. The same cannot be said of the Moore, Robbo or White versions. Midge Ure also occasionally landed on the correct harmony lead too :lol: To put Thin Lizzy in the same pot as Iron Maiden is slightly silly really imho, but we're way off topic now.

it's not even as if Freddie wore a Dennis jumper and in the absence of The Beano stateside had been mistakenly attributed original ownership rights to the garment -without even checking i am going to state categorically that Freddie's jumper was red and green.
