Happy Sisters day

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.

Cheers Steve, appreciate the shoutout! I dug up the version of Good Things from 'Kenny Giles Walks On Water' that is alleged to have been recorded at the gig!

Happy Sisters day, everyone!

Wearing my incredible shrinking t-shirt from the 10th anniversary Leeds gigs to celebrate. Seemed much roomier thirty years ago. Weird.

Happy XL Day all. Best wishes to those I was hoping to see today, maybe in Leeds, maybe in York. We've had some fun and weaved some dreams over all those years.

There's a new post on my TSOM blog about that first gig, following up on other details to have emerged since the fanzine review was rediscovered a couple of years ago: https://sistersfan.blogspot.com/2021/02 ... rs-of.html.
There's also some interesting posts on the 8085 FB group where people are reminiscing about their favorite TSOM gig of that early era, if anyone's interested.

quite honestly, slightly disappointing besides the shout out by Ben.

like expecting a good night of rough sex and finding a soft penis and all the blue pills finished.

oh well belated happy sisters day.
