If Eldritch knew he was dying...

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.

...do you think he would do something interesting, like Bowie did?

Didn't somebody say a while ago that Von would probably only allow the long-awaited "new album" to be released after he died?... I could see him doing something like that. :| Not a thing I like to think about, especially with the way celebs are getting picked off left and right this year.

That's kind pervert and sick to think about that, but ... I don't think that he would let publish anything that he wouldn't be sure that it would be not as good as previous albums, something that would deminish his legacy (when it comes to studio albums). After all, he's not having kid(s) or wife - at least officially - that he has help to supprt after his death.

He'd have to record it first.
Any more of that and we'll be round your front door with the quick-setting whitewash and the shaved monkey.

Apparently. Just remember that death is the end, but if we can ask to release and/or record something after-death, we, as your minons, would be more than happy. Please. Please. Pretty please.

You're saying he's unaware of his mortality and inevitable death?

Now that I think about it, if he didn't record it till after he'd died, that would be the most goth thing ever.

Stu is correct. This is a total Golf behaviour and attitude :notworthy:

Mark is right. This is some morbid-ass shit. Y'all should be ashamed.
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.

It's not a nice topic to discuss but I don't think it's in any way inappropriate. Eldritch insists that his music is about the human condition, all aspects of it, yes, including the dark side which logically implies the inclusion of our ultimate mortal fate.

"And I think I'm going to, going to..."

Yes, he does say 'die' but he can barely bring himself to say it. So much for the g**h accusations.

And he hasn't written anything particularly existential* since, not that we're aware of.

Like I say, personally I think it's a bit morbid, but wearing my mod hat I see no reason whatsoever to forbid it.

Carry on. :von:

Go re-read the lyrics to Crash & Burn.
About as existential as you can get.

Crash and Burn - straightforward adultery in the back seat of a car. Far Parade - could be about Gordon Brown, or perhaps Belgium. Not exactly Sein und Zeit, either of them.

You pretentious git (I own two different English translations, the original German, and have translated a bit myself. 'Cuz I'm a wanker. A pretentious, pretentious wanker).

So I approve of this message :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy:
