But Genevieve

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.

Still due in July or furloughed?

Thoughts?

Bastille Day?

Incidentally, why aren't the Napoleonic Wars considered The First World War?

Coincidentally, my wedding anniversary in 14/07.

Without a tour I'd guess next year, but maybe they'll surprise us yet.

the sound of guitars in "But Genevieve" reminds me a lot that of "Rachel" by She Wants Revenge.
BG could have a nice powerfull bassline as well if recorded properly, don't you think so too? :roll: :bat:

Referring to a certain rumour a few of us heard on the recent tour; apparently we'll think Genevieve is lovely.

Well now, this *is* interesting.
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.

Thoughts?
On the one hand, they did find themselves unexpectedly free during the spring and with not a lot of opportunities to socialise since.
On the other hand, see above. :wink:

If/when it arrives, I'm curious as to whether we get a single downloadable track, which is what most artists class as a "single" in the digital age, or something which comes with a b-side. If the latter, will it be that instrumental track, another of the new new songs or one of the old new songs?

So just to make sure I’ve understood this thread correctly: there is a rumour that The Sisters will release But Genevieve as a single next month? 😳

A physical single would be very cool since it has to have a B-side.

This thread is sweet.

After all this time, you're still able to believe.
