Wayne on the Sisters.....

THE place for your Sisters-related comments, questions and snippets of Sisters information. For those who do not know, The Sisters of Mercy are a rock'n'roll band. And a pop band. And an industrial groove machine. Or so they say. They make records. Lots of records, apparently. But not in your galaxy. They play concerts. Lots of concerts, actually. But you still cannot see them. So what's it all about, Alfie? This is one of the few tightly-moderated forums on Heartland, so please keep on-topic. All off-topic posts will either be moved or deleted. Chairman Bux is the editor and the editor's decision is final. Danke.

Find it hard to believe that this hasn't already made it's way over here but I did used the search function prior to posting!

Wayne has recently been answering questions from posters over on the MWIS & here was a response to a question, about his thoughts on the current day Sisters.

Q -Zing - Do I think it's cool to bitch about TSOM?

A -WH Yeah, damn right. I used 'em as an example 'cos historically we are linked with them (I wonder why?) and they're an old familiar foe. Anyway, I'm not bitchin', just stating fact. They're rubbish and have been for many many years. I've been magnanimous for too many years about the 'Dritch and his band of happy death men but I've given up on that now. I've got no interest in them, they are s**t. I'll never utter their name again. End of subject.

So that's a maybe on the 30th anniversary F&L&A re-union tour then Wayne? :lol:

that's a pretty few words to say: I've got no interest in them (...) End of subject.
A.E. looks sad, but his guy, floating in resentment, is one of he saddest person I've ever heard about. For many years he's dragging and talking about that/him and can't cut this thread once for all. He has no self respect and dignity at all. End of subject :lol:

Let's hope the needy self-publicist keeps true to his word.

Desperate for fame in Dead or Alive, tried to hijack the Sisters to the extent of stealing the name, decades of pretentious bin-bag lyric-ed pretentious waffle ever since.

I love :von: 's own version of events from the Andrew Collins interview on BBC Radio 6 in 2003 : "Andrew makes it look quite easy. So why don't I try and be Andrew, go off and do my own Andrew thing."

It's a bit pathetic to still be fighting this battle after 25 years isn't it?

I don't get it, he's been asked a question and he's answered it. I doubt he's been lying awake everynight for 25 years thinking about it. Why all the -ve vibes above ?

I once interviewed a Boss Dr Rhythm on what it was like being kicked out of the sisters he said "clap clap tish tish thumpa thumpa " what a bastard eh !

I would even consider legal actions if that had happened to me.

OK, but he could just say something like this:
  • Yes, sure, I was in the Sisters... but that was 25 years ago. To be honest I'm a bit fed up of answering questions about them these days. Andrew went his way and I went mine. To be honest, I'm not really interested in them these days.
Would be a bit more productive than petty name-calling?

yeah but Wayne has extended the hand of friendship only to get the door kicked in his face, he's quite right to be bitter and continuing to bitch about it

Come to think of it, replace "Wayne" with "Gary" and you've got the story of 1995 and Nowhere. :|

I'm still of the impression that That Guitarist was the making of The Sisters

I hold grudges Mark, I'm not nice people like you and most here, I like to see the 'bad man' get a kicking, in my case 'bad woman'.
I'll forgive Jerry Lovelock an awful lot for his work on Wake. It was all I had, visually, for decades. Hell! I even enjoyed the first two times I saw The Mish, then he wrote, recorded and video'd "Stay With Me".

the jig was up :|

He certainly contributed a massive amount to their best album.......and has recorded at least as many good/great tunes (possibly more :innocent: ) as :von: has, since they went their seperate ways.

I read the whole interview with Wayne on the Mish's forum a few weeks back. That answer seems to stem from when his manager got in touch with TSOM management about Wayne getting a pass for the gig in Brazil, he was told in no uncertain terms to "f**k off". Which seems to have (understandably) put his nose out of joint so he's no longer trying to be diplomatic.

In the same interview, he also said that as recently as a couple of years ago, he'd have given serious thought to a reunion tour with Eldritch.

What I don't understand is why his management has to contact Andrew's management in order to request free tickets. There must be a more direct way of saying "fancy a beer after the Sau Paulo gig?"

you know you all want them to reunite. both were great men. it's a pity how far away the chosen road to legend can bring men, especially if it's a one way.

Joking aside (and I'm not sure you are joking) that thought has crossed my mind before.
