Totally Insane fb

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.

the band play to at least 250K people but none of the social media groups has more than fifteen thousand members,
They play to 250k PEOPLE not 250k fans because, for reasons of ego, TSOM are a festival band “we don’t play small venues, so don’t look for us in your po dunk town”

How many of those 250k people actually know who TSOM are, could name one of their songs (that isn’t This Corrosion or Lucretia)

Here's a dodgy cover version. Nowhere near as good as the Sisters version tho

Kirstin seems very nice. At least it's not abuse. I must admit I find these fb groups boring. Phil Verne's fb group is very interesting :von:

You guys just come off as very judgemental. Not trying to be confrontational, but just like... be aware of how you treat others, and why it is that you feel these people are lesser than you for enjoying the same thing but in a different way.

Whilst I would agree with both you and @elamanamou that we should all be nice to each other, as let’s face it, we Sisters fans are few and far between (as someone once said) these days and need to stick together, I think that most fans (excepting maybe saints and martyrs) will have found the endlessly repetitive video link posts on the largest TSOM FB fan group tiresome at times, despite the excellent work of Ade and the other Admins to keep everything on an even keel. Most of the posts in this thread express that annoyance, rather than expressing any feelings of superiority. I think that most of the TSOM fans remaining here on HL these days are of the hardcore variety but I would describe them as specialists, competitive completists or even just plain obsessives rather than elitist (all of which terms, including the latter ironically, could be labelled as judgemental). But again, I would agree with the basic point that TSOM have always needed the new casual fan just as much as the obsessive completist. The great thing about the internet is that there can be (and indeed are in many cases) groups set up to cater for minority interest groups within the whole TSOM fan diaspora (eg bootleg collectors, fans of a certain era, those with an interest in design, those who live in a certain country etc etc). I just wish that the main twenty thousand strong FB group didn’t have quite so many links (invariably without comment) posted each day to the same old videos that many fans have seen thousands of times, and instead had more threads about important issues like tea towels for example!
