Gift reissue plus extras

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.

My 80's musical "guilty secret" is a liking for Fish-era Marillion rather than Mr Marx's poptastic turn on the GD album. I'd ask the jury to take into account a 70's Merseyside upbringing drenched in Genesis, Floyd and red leb :p x
Are you kidding me, Jesters Tear is a f**king masterpiece. I play t regularly. Every track is absolute genius. Garden Party, Forgotten Son, He Knows You Know.

I feel no shame or guilt and i keep no secret. I wear my prog rock members badge with pride. Of course two years after Jesters came out everything changed, for the better, but I look back with fondness

Yup, Misplaced Childhood was the one for me, i've yet to explore the rest of their back catalog but Misplaced Childhood can bring me right back to the mid-80s any time.

I have four music related tattoos. On my right forearm I have The Mish and Head and Star logo's either side of the Slayer logo, on my left arm I have the original font Marillion logo.

I can dig that, even though it sounds like a Belarusian stew. Probably better than proth though :)

I mean if you think about prog goth, a dark brooding cynical look at the world with 20 minute synth solos, that’s no true too far from some of the moments on Floodland or Gift

Never been a prog fan and think it's because my older brother constantly played Yes and ELP , his cd of Brain salad surgery mysteriously went missing and I only confessed a few years ago that i used it as a frisbee on the local park .

Agreed. No is my preferred answer, whatever the question

I've seen Rick Wakeman interviewed on TV and he always tells good stories.

His music bores me rigid though.

Are you talking about Ravey Davey? He's not a Wizard, he's a Nurse.
