Live Stream

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.

Yes his voice isn’t up to it.
Irritatingly the only scenario that could truly hid his vocal deficiencies is new studio recordings...

He'd have to take his shirt off if he wanted to compete with Toyah's Sunday youtube thingy. Did anyone see that? Ay caramba, nearly took my eye out! :lol: :lol:

so we have 3 weeks until " Ruby Tuesday"... i guess we arent getting an invite after all. i can make my own cup-cakes and i have a fit girlfriend and several female friends (who can forget the fire-bretahing as any old slapper can spit zippo fuel) but i would like some new postcards, a 12" -signed- vinyl record of Geneveieve ; a t-shirt that says "Ruby Tuesday" on the front and "40 carriages long and still roilling" on the back. and say...Red Lorry Yellow Lorry supporting
(i know for a fact Wolfie would be more than up for it) .
Not to mention Professor Pearman joining them for a few numbers and -whythe fuckery-doodle-not - The Gragoyle, Lurch, Mr Whammy, Andreas Timbo and Patsy* turning up for the sort of 40th birthday gigs that HUGE SUPERSTER bands like The Stones and Thin Lizzy have. after all Andrew me old munchkin, surely this was part of the Grand Plan? :von:

**and Chris Robo-breezers Ctalyst natch as he will have to provide half the stage gear as per. :twisted:

Nope, instead you get a Gift reissue CD that includes typos on the spine ("Gifte", "Sitterhood").

I don't think today's environmental laws allow the fogscapes we saw in the early 80's.
That was not the case in Sat, 11-Apr-2009: Athens - Greece - Building 56 - Hellenic Cosmos...
They managed to not only create fogscape in stage but the entire building was covered in fog for 2-3 days :lol: :lol: :lol: :bat: :bat:
Yeap anyone that was there can say that easily was the most foggged concert from Sisters :innocent: :notworthy:

I remember he tried but this one was not one of the best concerts i remember him. Though that was a better than the one in 2006 tour at the same city. :wake:

there was one gig during the US leg of the Silver Bullet tour where the fire marshall stoppped the gig halfway through because of excessive smoke and that was that! End of show!

It does feel sad to think that the 40th anniversary should come and go without any sort of fanfare.
What about some kind of online Heartland event?

something could be doable eh? i dunno, i reckon Quiff Boy could DJ for an hour or so playing 80's goth classics.
i wonder if its too late to get Paddy to get The Smurphs out for the night. it might be worth a message to Ben & Dylan & Creff reminding them that their curmudgeonly overlord doesnt have to do much..just growl into a mjc for 30 mins. :von:

I was once at a gig at Post Haste in Wakefield where some joker kept his hand on the button of the smoke machine for over 10 minutes. There wasn't even a band on stage, it was between sets. You could barely see your hand in front of your face.

The only place I remember seeing bands at in Wakey was the 'Rooftop Gardens' which was their local "grab a granny" Tiffany's style venue, i.e. terrible.
