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.

I'd love to hear Halford sing This Corrosion.
I'm sure it would be better than Meatloaf's Godawful butchering of "More" .
OMG thanks for reminding me :lol: :urff: :lol:

Okay this is getting silly. What’s the point of a seemingly never ending list of song titles?

Is he just trying to make a statement - “see, I can write songs!’ Or does he intend to actually perform 20 new songs in rotation?

Actually, maybe that’s it? Maybe he intends to spend a few years touring the new songs without no intention of recording them?

Pretty much the same as every year since 'Under The Gun' then.

:D

Honestly though, there's a degree of stubborn perversity to Von's approach to the whole thing that I find strangely admirable (as much as I'd like a new record).
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 would be interesting, perverse and flippant to play two well-known songs and only new unknown, never released. Even though it'll never happen.

Do you not think, after years and years of having your life's work analyzed again and again, having small ideas taken to the extreme by media and the fans, and generally being considered an icon for an identity you don't associate with, that it might be quite entertaining to watch a whole bunch of people (and possibly, in his eyes, the reason he's terrified to make any motions) lose their minds over the smallest thing?

Entertaining isn't a word I'd use.
Trolling might fit better at this stage

That would be very Eldritch to do something like this (dying hair, loud shirts, now like a metal band outlook), but I guess it's too much fuss for him, too much to learn, for no reason at all - he have nothing to prove, nor to gain.

whatever the reason everybody -to varying degrees- DOES lose their minds over the smallest thing. not just the smallest thing that he does- this Cadiz /Gift Reissue bollocks is still generating interest 18 months after the first flyers were seen in London. if that was just some idiots idea of a wind-up (and i still cant see any other motive if it is fake) then what did that cost them? a few quid on flyers. my point is all of us "would like..." so we invest whatever we want to emotionally into anything that doesn't outright kill that hope off. and sometimes things are more than we really hoped for or expected -the slew of new new songs since Dylan joined made me very happy even if they are never recorded/released...just try not to be TOO disappointed and it's fine. to quote Phil Lynott "it's alright to lose your heart but never lose your head".

Well, Chris said back in 2011 that they'd have more New-new songs besides Arms & Still - just that they hadn't found the time to play them yet.

Chris is a veritable song-writing machine...and .Ben writes stuff for several projects so i dont imagine the fault lies with anyone but Andrew. 1995 anybody?

With the announced songs of the new line-up approaching twenty, I find it interesting that another Leeds band just posted that they have twenty new songs ready for release in 2021: Soft Cell.

We have had Ofra Haza and Terri Nunn as duet partners to Andrew; wouldn't Mark Almond be fantastic?

The song, We Are On This Plane, reminds me of a vid Ben uploaded a while ago.

It was shot on a plane, feat. Ben & a very tired Ravey Davey, who says something like, 'We are all going to die...!'

Davey gets existential while hungover and suspended in flight, Ben records some of it, Von delights and writes a verse, Ben posts the vid to the unsuspecting world?

Reminds me of the way that Frank Zappa would turn offhand quips from his band into songs, eg. "Why Does It Hurt When I Pee?"
"We're Hawkwind and this is a song about love."
