Gothenburg, Mudd Club 15.05.85 Video snippet

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.

Thanks a lot! Like always mysterious....

When we´re on already: What about the rumour of a San Francisco `85 Video?

San Francisco 1985 Video: I saw it on someones list, but otherwise never somewhere else. So does it exist or is it just misdated?

Maybe the audience don´t bothered to film the concerts with all the fog making them barely visible. Because there were a dozen filmed material in 1983 which stopped when the fog came.... Similar like the movie....

I was at San Francisco 1985 and I've also heard rumors of a video, but I've never heard of anyone actually having it.

Fender's Ballroon was in Southern California (AKA Hell). How dare you confuse that with San Francisco :eek:

easily done when a) the dvd just says fenders ballroom california USA (and san francisco is traditionally located in california) and b) you dont really care. :wink:

Its still almost a miracle, and more prominently a pity, that no proper 85 videos do exist.
A rah dvd re-release could feature the other pro-videos which never got released.

Great to see the gothenburg one, thanks

Finding out last night this had been uploaded was like Xmas all over again. It's just fab. No Time To Cry isn't a favourite of mine but this version is amazing

Cool watch, thanks for posting :D I'm subscribed to this dude but hadn't seen this. Amazing that stuff keeps on turning up, decades later.

I wonder if the bloke singing figured he'd still be doing this several decades down the line? :notworthy:

If you keep watching to the encore (around 65 minutes in), the annoying cap's owner finally removes said item (and waves it around in appreciation of Wayne's V-E-R-Y lengthy solo on KOHD) to reveal a more modern Eldritch hairstyle. :lol:

I noticed that, looks like Von got a bit bored by it and stomped off too. Cheeky remark to open Train too.

Just finished watching this. Hat guy aside, this is probably better than Wake for me. Wake is too pretty, too polished, has too much flash and gizmos, and I'm not a fan of that big boomy sound others seem to love so much. This one does it better.

Aye, that was the bit I wanted to see, as from his comments it was clear that he was getting fed up with Wayne hogging the limelight. I wrote about it a few years back on my blog piece on this gig (http://sistersfan.blogspot.com/2017/06/ ... -1985.html) but that was obviously before I'd seen the video where he actually flounces off stage, as you say! After thirty-nine nights, I can see why he was getting fed up!

Wonderful!

I think Hussey’s solo on KOHD is better on Wake, but otherwise this is just like a bootleg from recent years (high quality)... apart from the hats and hair.

A historic document. If only we could have one with Gary Marx.
