Far Parade, really? Credible source? I don't know if I could handle a whole new song already, it's only 3 years since Arms was introduced...

Or did you mean the album ;D

i heard that there will be new TSOM fashion collection, including boxers, socks and shoes (probably hi-tops) with TSOM logo on sole.

For sure, The Sisters and everybody attending will have a great time at a wonderful festival ... ;D ;D ;D ...

I'm really not pleased that I can't make it, but hell ... now I'm looking forward with even more pleasure to the Amphi Festival in Cologne ... ;D ...

Interesting coverage of a BC press conference today :

It was announced also that the Sisters of Mercy play in more extended structure than six years ago in Tasmajdan, and that, except for drum machines, which for years used instead of live drums, the rest of the band will be complete.

Surely it is the same line-up as in 2006 ???? This bit also caught my eye :

As for the riders, no hidden delight, as they say, extremely humorous list of required composition of Faith No More, "as the best numbers, Alan Ford," where, for example, "soft as a bunny towels." "The band, of course, wanted time to come together with the organizers, the real demands they really humble," said MeÅ¡ković.Ozzy Osbourne & Friends require, among other things, squeezed juices, paper cups, linen tablecloths and large mirrors in the dressing room while the Sisters Of Mercy asked 13 single rooms, including one on the lowest floor and one, regardless of the temperature, there must be some system for heating.

To read it in the original Serbian, here is the link :

He truly is a reptile.

So can you decipher whether "extended structure" in this instance means a bigger band or a longer setlist?

It seems to not just imply the former, but explain it with the reference to the drum machine. The clear implication seems to be that there will be live bass (if only ..). To go back to the original : Ostatek = "the rest" benda = "of the band" biti = "will be" completa = complete.
Either someone has their wires crossed (possibly me, more likely the promoter) or we're in for a surprise !

Should have added that this site : http://www.clubbing.rs/content/view/7446/54/mentions the time the Girls are due on set (01.05 a.m. - have they ever started later ??) and quotes the rooms rider details. adding the request for "a large sofa" for the heated room - weirder and weirder.

Belgrade is supposed to be pretty awesome at night so if you're not planning to get any sleep after the gig before your flight I'll be looking to stay out late partying. I've got a 6am flight on the Sunday, terrible times for flights out of that place.
May as well be hung for a sheep as a lamb!

The only Sisters tshirt on sale last night btw was the "Hot metal..." one.

Well I'm in the festival, got my belt confiscated on the way in! I'm in the 2007 tour t-shirt and army shorts if anyone else is here.

I'm slightly underwhelmed so far. It let's see how things go.

Sounds cool, but I guess we can write off Belgium now, then.

Yes, indeed :?. The festivals have almost finished their line ups.



I'm quite excited for the setlist, as I assume to get a pretty simlar one in Cologne.
