Gothicbiff has reminded me of a moment. We were sat on balcony and right of the stage and at one point Von went to the back of the stage looking up in our direction. We exchanged solemn nods, and I then brought his attention to my t-shirt.

I'm not sure how clearly he could see it, but it wasn't an enthusiastic response... :lol: :lol: :von: :eek:

2020 - Leeds & Nottingham, so far anyway. And Frankfurt. And Manchester with huge thanks to Gothicbiff

I was sat on the balcony on the right and I thought he was looking at my wife when he looked up! :)

I'm sure his mighty gaze encompasses all.

He can check the shirt again tomorrow anyway.

...So John Robb is offering to play on the next Sisters record for nothing? Interesting. It's not like the two don't know each other and it smacks of the Eldritch-James relationship.

But it'll all be too good to be true.

I knew that I have to listen new-new songs more than once, but after this review it's sure. :notworthy:

Robb seems to have high-hopes ... maybe he got some inside information, or maybe just hoping.

He has always held the Sisters very high as far as I remember.

I think the strongest argument for something in the making for us without insider info is:
Why on earth would Andrew, Ben, Dylan and Dave spend weeks (well, in total over time at least) rehearsing in the Trix studio and have around 20 songs in the pipeline if their only goal was to just spice up the setlist? It just wouldn't make sense, not to me at least. Don't they have better things to do..UNLESS they are there for some serious business?

I know it's the Sisters and tinkering Andrew we're talking about here, but if they were any other band, surely these studio sessions would be a sign of recording?

Sure, but it's TSOM, not any other band.

I allow myself to hasitate with hopes for new album and just enjoy that machine (although not so groove - lack of bass) is working as factory.

This vigour that resembles activity of newly formed band is exciting itself.
Fact that they seemed to manage perform on last tour level is very promising.
