Chris Catalyst: "Make Good Art"

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.

Thought some of you might be interested to see this... Chris has a new album out in April and this is the first track from it. It heavily samples a speech by Neil Gaiman, and Neil has given it the thumbs up...

Agreed, exponentially better than the xmas thing, would make an excellent walk-on / opening track for a Robochrist gig would this 8) or better still follow it up with an album-length remix where Gaiman recites the untold Ballad Of Halo Jones instead, seeing as he knows it.

Excellent. Has a very 90s Madchester vibe about it. Reminds me of Oasis “f**king In Th Bushes”

i really like it. This is what that cunt Kanye West thinks his music sounds like whilst obviously sounjng nothing of the sort. Funked up break beats with effective repetition (as opposed to unimaginitive monotony).

Any way, Chris can do just whatever the fuck he likes in my book. When he was doing a live chat on Instagram the other week, he saw my name come up as "eastmidswhizzkid" and he says: "Oh eastmidswhizzkid's joined the chat. Hi Lee!. for those of you who dont know Lee is an old diehard Sisters fan who ive met a few times..." He knew my real name! i was well chuffed. :von: :bat:
