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.

I just can’t justify it. I can’t make them do that. I mean, I’d like to make them do that, but I can’t.
This is still a bit weird. By their own testimony it sounds like the band has had one musician after another dying to be allowed to do just that.

Q:I read that you love Japanese films in particular.

AE:I do!

Q:Any favourites?

AE:Well, if I’m not feeling fragile, then the works of Takeshi Kitano. They are bleak but they are good. I especially love the one where he doesn’t speak for the first 30 minutes of the film.

Q:Any chance you’ll try that yourself on stage?

AE:I would love to. I’ve already started. A few years back I learned American sign language so I could do one song entirely in mime.

Chill, just remember that what comes out of Eldritch's mouth in an interview situation often bears little resemblance to the reality or truth. He amuses himself to relieve tour boredom, and this is probably a far healthier option than in the old days. The quotes are not to be treated as written on tablets of stone for the ever willing zealots.

The best I've read with Ben. I like how he is assuming his "new" position in the band
Andrew and I wouldn’t let anything get by that wasn’t of the highest quality.
and speaks more personal and honest how he views the Sisters and other things.

Yeah, yeah, once bitten twice shy, but never give up hope ... and the pain is contagious.

The rockiest park I can think of in the land of LS is Otley Chevin Forest Park. Some big ones there that you could easily inhabit. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Good transport links too as the airport is next door.

While on the Hussey Hobbo tour bus , Von could either read a copy of Salad Daze or listen to Wayne singing Humpty Dumpty . Or he could listen to Wayne telling him how he recorded FLAA all on his little hobbo lonesome

We could let the Hobomobile's tyres down tomorrow night and thwart the evil doer.

That could work 🤣.Problem is he has so many devotees to the Hobbo Cult that one of them
could give him a lift in their Chariots of bull s**t .
He could bribe them to keep stumm with the proceeds he earns during the day time busking and selling the big issue . He has a special offer at the moment 5 free copies of Salad Daze with every big issue sold . I am told a man resembling Harry Hill was seen scurrying away with a copy to wipe his back side 🤣🤣🤣🤣

Ah, ever more mess is coming up from putrefaction ready for humification ... a good sign, basically ... :) ...

However interesting it might be, though, to see stuff fermenting ... it's not very kind of you to have that
interesting interview with Ben, not Von, from Australia at the start of this thread slide through the excrements ... :wink: ...

The thread for the salad daze is here.

He would indeed
Having 5 copies would allow him to use a couple for bedding under the rock , and act as a sleep aid especially the first few chapters where Hussey talks about which bus he used to catch and what colour wall paper he had in his bedroom as a teenager .
