Some reading for time between the shows... Here is an article from today's edition of Czech newspaper LIDOVE NOVINY about the Tour + interview with Eldritch (done before start of tour). Here you can find scan of the article: https://www.flickr.com/photos/29782013@N03/14198220364/

and probably more interesting, original English version of the interview. Enjoy 8) :


Q: Sisters are around since the year of 1981. Your new tour is called „Ever Forward“. How long this „ever“ will last?
As long as we can still stand, as long as we can still sing, we’ll be there.

Q: Could you imagine yourself as touring in the age of „Lemmy“ from Motorhead (now age 68 ) or even Leonard Cohen (79)? Have you visited their shows recently?
We went to see Motorhead in Bradford a few years ago and they’ve still got it. Chris says he saw Lemmy last year and said he was in fine form. We’ve got our fingers crossed for him. Leonard Cohen is unassailably classy and I would imagine remains as such.

Q: You did not play any show last year. The silence about the band even made to rise some speculations about the end of Sisters. What were you doing? Besides guitarists doing their own projects...
Every band has a break from time to time, sometimes to rest the band, sometimes to appease the accountant. This time, we were just having a rest and the lads carried on with their own things. They work at a different pace to everyone else.

Q: Back to music. What can be expected during following tour? Some new covers (like Red Lorry, Yellow Lorry's Gift That Shines last time), reinvented old songs or even some new stuff?
We will be doing some old songs, some new songs and we have plans for some covers which you won’t be expecting at all.

Q: During your last concert before break – in Cologne in July 2012 – was with big suprise featured Lisa Cuthbert. While you have used backing female vocals yet on your shows in early 90s, this time was she even solo performing one of your songs (This Corrosion). Can we expect to see here again during following tour?
Not on these dates, but she is a great talent and we hope to see her again soon.

Q: Are you following some of ther internet forums – e.g. Heartland – to get feedback on your shows?
No. We do what we do, and continue apace. I think Chris from the band keeps tabs on sites like that, but I’ve enough to be doing without getting involved in internet bickering about what songs we’re playing, or what shirts we’re wearing this week.

Q: You must be surely bored asking why was your last regular album released back in 1990. So that no question about new album. But, don't you plan to release at least some new – or unreleased - stuff via internet?
You preface a question by telling us you’re not going to ask that question. So I’m going to preface my answer by...

Q: You are one of the most bootlegged band. Do you mind when your live recordings are shared?
Nowadays, not so much, so long as it’s not for (someone else’s) profit. And we hate most of the artwork, but... ‚twas ever thus.

This is the second interview this tour and no one asks the only interesting question, namely why they don't play Far Parade, or any other new unplayed song. But maybe they don't know there is such a song. Oh well.

Thanks for sharing!

At least it proves what many of us suspected; that Chris does check in here from time to time, and that at least some of it gets reported back to :von:

He doesn't follow the forums but he doesn't like the bootleg artwork created on the forums.

OKAY THEN.

Do you have any other upcoming projects that you want to tell us? Tours? A new EP? Singles?

The reason we do these interviews now because we are on tour in May. Chris group trying to force me to make a single. You never know. Things are very malleable in the world of Sisters.

Chris if your reading this you shouldn't have shaved your head. You look like a child now. A very small child. Don't do that.

Thank you for posting, Europa. This is a nice read, too... :D ... funny translation at times, but I like the part with the Sisters sauce ... ;D ... yeah.

And the part with the respect, anyway.

Agree about the funny translation. Would be interesting to know if "Chris essaie de me forcer" was trying to translate "Chris is always trying to force me" or Chis is currently trying to force me " to release a single in the English original.
And surely he's saying that he personally doesn't have any interest in Twitter, and not the opposite as is implied in the Engkish retranslation.
