greetings from west cumbria
my opinion of the night...........for what its worth.
got in early , goldblade were s**t but enthusiastic. reminded me and the mrs of the band i used to be in............. when i was 14.

sisters were good, not very loud to start, but got better, chris's guitar seemed very low throughout and he seemed to be fiddling about for a while.

lights could have been better, not enough strobe for my liking. not really that much smoke either.
We were placed in front of ben about 3 or 4 bodies from the front. got a good view of the bass for romeo down but buggered if i can remeber it.

oh and yes.... can all the tall people (over 5' 4"") please stand behind my mrs, so i dont have to keep lifting her up to see.

what a nice thumb you have mark

there... all said and done...... til next time.
Broke the habbit of bumping into markfiend @ sisters gigs (judging by the photo you were to the left hand side of the hall somwhere)
i am more likely to release an album before the sisters

I'm still waiting for photos of the cute girl in the check shirt. Come on, someone must have snapped her! :twisted:
Any more of that and we'll be round your front door with the quick-setting whitewash and the shaved monkey.

And on the way back to the hotel I got propositioned by a hooker! Is there something about me? After checking out the Shepherds Bush Empire prior to last year's Mish gigs, I got stopped twice within twenty feet and asked for/offered drugs!
Hey, I 'm the girl at the start that went down. I'm fine now, thanks for asking, I lost me and dad's places in the crowd though :evil: that realy annoyed me, but the show was real good! :lol:

moved to just outside egremont 2 yrs ago. lots of beaches within 10 -15 mins and the lakes 1/2hr away. love it.

but a bit of a ball ache having to drive to harrogate (3 hours no matter which way you go) to utilise the sister in law for a baby sitter while we went to see the Sisters. but worth it in the end.

Hey snncrv!

It's good to hear that you were OK in the end & that you enjoyed yourself.

We were in the front row & I think that the people stood just to my right were just in front of you.

I think I saw you when the concert had ended near the merchandise stall while I was waiting for my husband. I was going to ask if you were feeling better, but I wasn't completely sure that it the right person & I would have felt a bit foolish asking the wrong person! :oops:
That's All Folks!

ok, it's a week late, but here's my twopenn'orth:

it was fucking awesome.
could have been louder, could have been longer, but it was still The Sisters.
it was fucking AWESOME!
i can't give any less of an emotional response (ever, actually) because it's so much more than just seeing my favourite band -as the sisters are so much more than just my favourite band- never gonna have had enough sex, never gonna have seen the sisters enough live. fact.

and then there's you lot -us lot- Heartlanders! meeting up with you people is always going to be a special occasion, and there was an exceptionally vast crowd of people there without whom it would not have been half as good...as i've said before i love you all, even those of you i don't. (thanks for putting up with me. ;D )

briefly met chris and ben again -they deserve a prize for the amount of time they are consistently prepared to spend talking to/being phgotographed with/signing stuff for us lot IMO.

however....the cherry-on-the-icing on the top of the whole rather enormously scrumptious cake (for me) was finally meeting eldritch -totally out of the blue, whilst i was having a fag outside the aftershow. i've only ever wanted to shake him by the hand and say "thank-you" (and to do so without bugging him or making a tit of myself) and it made me a very happy man. got his autograph as well ("i know i said i wasn't going to bug you andrew but if you could sign that for me i promise to fuck off!") and when he said it was his pleasure he looked like he meant it which was good enough for me. :von:

last but by no means least- enormous "thank-you"s to weebs, steve, michael and don partners in crime before and aft and "without whom...." :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy:
