covers you'd like to see

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 like „Putting out Fire“ by David Bowie.
If you mean 'Cat People' it was certainly a regular on the Fav jukebox back in the day. Another regular was 'Uncertain Smile' by The The.

I'd suggest covering 'Living After Midnight' would allow Von to live out a few more glam Glitter band fantasies at encore time. Plus it's lyrics are manageable.

I Drove All Night, The Orb

He's got no chance with the big notes but it's an absolute belter :)

I Drove All Night was a belter of a Roy Orbison song, made popular by Cyndi Lauper. I couldn’t find any reference to The Orb version on YouTube so I couldn’t compare. Don’t know if it’s the same belter

the cover i would most like to see is the cover to the new album....


....oh this is 'cover versions' you would like to 'hear'? ....well it doesnt say that...it should do you know....it may confuse FB group members... nah, you're right -this is the proper internet. no apps here (there is of course but its a proper functiong app, designed by a professional without 80 billion tonnes of javascript killing any semblance of usability...and you need the proper internet to get it anyway. -sorry state of affairs for the bottom feegers if the WWW is the pondlife filter).

you dont care if it confuses FB admn? we're not all retards...i admin a highly successful anarcho-techno music page without any trouble and still have time to get banned for selling carrots that look like sex-toys (because FB wont give in and see that they are carrots not dildos) and have spare mins to do the most pefunctory bollocks filtration on behalf of more retarded/less advanced admin...f**k it, i agree actually- just because youve risen to the top -of the bottom- of your local pond doesnt mean youve evolved...youre just Head Honcho Pondlife now....(& as with bosses cosmos-wide anybody who wants to be in charge is probably the least qualified and/or in possession of a Dodgy Agenda.)
no the thread's title hasnt confused me- i am being an 'Agent provocateur'....knickers to you too mate! yes ok -this should be in "New Thongs..." :lol: :twisted:

Probably entirely unrelated, but I would love to see the sisters do an acoustic set.
Bring back the 606, put ben on an acoustic twelve string and dylan on a bass and record. I think that would be awesome.

I fear you'd have to rewind the lead vocals 25years or so, or stay current and bury them in the mix.

I'd like to hear them do a version of Soft Core by Maurice and the Cliches.
I think Von could manage that & Ben would have a ball with the guitar break.
Would be better with a bass, but then so would a lot of things
Cheers.

Late era Cohen - Almost Like The Blues or Different Sides would be good choices.
