Wayne on FALAA, Eldritch and stuff

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.

Wow, that looks extremely cool, panzerfaust ... :eek: :notworthy: ...

A lovely track list. Is this the one for the second Sisters album?!
Torch, Giving Ground, This Corrosion and Driven Like The Snow that early? And Wide Receiver also marked for release ...
Of course, I'd also love to know more about all the unknown tracks.
Anyway, looking at the song titles, I think it had become a great success, if it had it been released ...

Where is this piece of paper from, though? Everyone can put a few letters on an envelope and a sheet ... And ABSENDER: VON ELDRITCH ... hhm ...

According to Howard Thompson, the Sisters contact at Elektra Records, it's written on the back of a Gramercy Park Hotel Roomservice Breakfast menu (in NY). And genuine. Quite interesting.

The tracklist for "Left On m*****n and Revenge" on this version is the same as that written out for an Italian fanzine writer in the summer of 1985 on MR notepaper, which has been doing the rounds for a while now. What is new here is the bottom bit with Eldritch's plans for the singles, including the non-album tracks. Almost certainly written during the 1985 US tour around the time of those photos with alan Vega outside the hotel.
The airmail envelope is not linked to the tracklist other than that it is the top of another HT photo, the lower part of which features a text from Eldritch about the effects of Chernobyl on West Germany in 1986. It is also on HT's instagram stream.

Ah cool. Thanks for the info. Can't remember to have seen that MR notepaper.
Lovely, however, are all those old photos on HT's instagram ... many thanks for the link @Charlie ...
although I didn't find the one with the envelope and Eldritch's notes about Chernobyl. Might search again.
