Ben and Dylan must have noticed we found it already maybe - they have both put it on instagram now. :lol:

"Spare us a shekel for an old g*thic overlord"

Sorry, been one of those days, in fact that could be the, admittedly, unwieldy tour name.

Heh. I have the same jacket as our glorious leader. But he probably didn't buy it in Primark. :von: :lol:

Ace photo, where did you see this Lee? Leathered up and raring to go, just missing a top hat ;D

edit : scratch that question, just seen the other thread.

Careful, the OGL moniker was awarded to Wayne many years ago on the MWIS forum.

It's a Levi denim jacket isn't it? Or a "wrangler" like we used to call them, no matter what the brand, back in the day on the Wirral.

I’m wearing it right now in fact :von:
The most successful tyranny is not the one that uses force to assure uniformity but the one that removes the awareness of other possibilities, that makes it seem inconceivable that other ways are viable, that removes the sense that there is an outside.

For reasons unbeknownst it seems odd to still be enamoured of such a thing, aged 50 and all, but yep they sure as f**k do. Ravey rocking the 'who in their right minds only wears one jacket?' look :notworthy:

Question - is Von standing on a box or is Ravey equally titchy?

Regarding a height query above.

Looks like southerners who spend too long in Leeds start shrinking.

also good to see Ravey being recognised as a band member- the first Nurse to be so honoured,. :notworthy:

EDIT: i wrote "The Sisters Of Mercy- fuck all the haters" as a comment to Ben's posting the pic and got a 'like' from Mr.Christo. I am nearly 50 and probably old enough to be his dad but it made my day. :von:

I'd say shorter than Von by an inch or two, he really is tiny.

News to me too, wow I thought he was as Leeds as it gets. Erm, apologies, Mr Davey. Well, it's not where you're from it's where you're at, and Ravey Davey Gravy is definitely there :notworthy:

The most I've seen them look like a band since the early 90's. :D

They look f**king iconic. New album... INCOMING!

Haven't been this excited since... well, you don't need to hear about that. I should know better than to get my hopes up, but, f**k it... hopes are up!

I love this photo but there's a small part of me wishing that while everyone else was being serious, Dave was waving his arms, jumping up and grinning, that would be epic!

This is just outstanding.
My heart genuinely skipped when I saw it. Far too exciting - but also sort of like 'yes, this is how things should be'. I'm sure there is a suitable German word for that feeling.......

That gang mentality of being in a band - we haven’t seen that for a long time from the Sisters. It's really quite moving to see that in the current live band... a proper band, and proud of it. f**king awesome. Gawd bless 'em.
