More of the Australasian phone interviews ...

Post your reviews of Sisters-related material or interviews with Sisters-related musicians here. And don't believe the hype: 1985 most definitely is a fashion statement.

Apologies for any thread derailing that may have caused sense of humour failure in some areas. Heartland is not a facsimile of 80s Radio Moscow though.

Now, am I still letting down La Huss's tyres? Hope the Manca weather is better than Leeds today.

Thanks the Ben snippets.
On Instagram, ben said he recorded for Band he grew up listening to and now in this interview, he says clearly that he was listening sisters
It’s obvious that the sissies are in a recording process

I can see Metallica quaking in their converse lol. The Girls appeal is more selective nowadays :p

But, oh for a straight interview with no smartbum games.

energising effect on ALL of them ... ;D ...

Another great interview with Ben, he talks about the tour, the new songs and the song writing process but also more about his audition with The Sisters and his influences and background.

Cool. Thank You ... :D :D ...
It's been some time that we've got such a comprehensive one ...

I've linked it to his page in the SistersWiki ... :D ...

A more interesting read, ok the Ben background and recruitment stuff has been aired before, but the new song generation stuff hints that the old dog might be relearning collaboration. Let's hope he can be encouraged towards recording too, as his is still the only vote that counts.

A couple more small interviews here, one each with Ben and Andrew:

Ben: https://spotlightreport.net/featured/in ... s-of-mercy

Andrew:https://amnplify.com.au/portfolio-items ... -of-mercy/

Nothing new but Andrew does say this about Trump:

“I haven’t actually managed to release an album about Trump because basically he is beyond parody, beyond the despicable. You just can’t keep up with amount of crap that that s**t keeps giving!�
