NEW SONGS!

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.

WHEN I'M ON FIRE (2020)

I know I'm wetter when it rains

I know I'm better with the pain

And when I stand and raise my hand
There is no god but where I am

And I know

When I'm on fire

More songs:

ON THE BEACH
THE SECOND SONG OF MOSES
RAY RAY

None of those new-new songs have author/credits alongside them.

Odd innit?

Edit:
DON'T DRIVE ON ICE was also added to the list, though this one is credited to Christo/Eldritch/Smith as usual.

Probably no coincidence new songs are appearing now, as a tour was scheduled so the time was/is set aside for Sisters stuff. Hoping for something marked 2021 to turn up soon, would be an even better sign.

that's not a song, it's a verse and maybe the lead in to a chorus if I'm being generous

I just checked, and it fits in a single tweet. Not sure what that means, but yeah, it's short.

Am I right in thinking that in some interview in the past he complained that he'd written songs in the past with too many lyrics, and that they were hard to sing on stage?

If so, he's not making that mistake twice.

It could be due to the increasing font size on the auto cue.

Well, that looks like lyrics that Von might actually sing, not like ON THE BEACH which will probably stay a poem forever.

Compare this to the Song of Moses (32 Deuteronomy, King James Version).

39 See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand.

40 For I lift up my hand to heaven, and say, I live for ever.

Three nights at the Roundhouse in September? That's ambitious. They'll need all those extra songs to be able to perform different setlist each night. Something to look forward to.

All good news. The fact that "Sisters of Mercy" has a hit in Google News (the Roundhouse shows) is a great sign.

Everyone get your shots now.

Seriously, if they play in 2021...if anyone plays live in 2021, it's a little victory.

You're not a fan of Afterhours I take it?

I think it's brilliant.

yes the relevance of the second song of moses was pointed out to me by a biblical scholar (hobby) friend/aquaintance of mine. very clever.

I've mentioned before the similarity between the intro's to the live 'Rain From Heaven' and 'United'. Plus we now have a KK Downing lookylikey as well as a Rob :lol:
