I guess that "Nobody really ever leaves The Sisters" is simply bacause TSOM put a stamp, because of such legend behind band. Once you were in TSOM it will be always mentioned by journalists.


Indeed. Gary, Wayne and Patricia in particular still get as many mentions for being in the Sisters as they do for their own things by journalists and us I guess too.


I think the difference being that Gary, Wayne and Patricia were part of the Sisters during their time as a productive, charting band.......after 1993 who is in the band is of no impotance to anyone outside their hardcore base.
They were also successful in their own right.....the rest not so.


Can't agree to that ... just have a look at the tour schedules over the past decades! There are so many places
where The Sisters played to enthusiastic and welcoming audiences without any of the above being present.

Beyond that, Chris and Ben are reknown for being part of The Sisters and for their guitar work with the band.
That's not just nothing. Everybody knows they can rock!

During all this time, both (and even the nurse) have run their own projects.
Who else did that before? And without leaving?

Also, some hardcore fanbase would surely not sell out gigs each tour ...

Of course, the record industry might time and again take a nostalgic look back on those times, when bands
were fully under their control and had to deliver a record (and profits) each year.

I for one am glad we've got over with that millennium ... Wink ... though obviously, a lot remains to be done ... It wasn't me... ...


My comment was n't a criticism of The Sisters...I believe that Mr Whammy, Chris Starling, Mike etc are very much Sisters DNA. The only difference being that there was a fascination with the early Sisters biography. Wayne and Craig with the m*****n achieved their own succes and Patricia in the chart topping days was as much a frontperson as AE.

As for relevance today...they are very relevant due to their back catalogue which is still magical to myself and many other 40+.


I don't mind criticism of The Sisters. Everybody knows there are lots of hardcore nostalgics with every band in the world. And forgivably so ... it's a matter of the heart, isn't it?
However, judgements like "is of no impotence for anyone but ..."
I don't think so. And it to me it tastes a bit derogatory ... but maybe, it's only a typo ...


.."is of no importance for anyone but ..." is a bit derogatory. Sorry.

This might be somewhat akin to Brian getting killed off in Family Guy...a few episodes later (after people were freaking out!) he was back.....justa sayin!

Thank you for saying so. I've also corrected the typo that got into my writing. Sorry for that.

My fascination with The Sisters biography goes way beyond the early days. I'd love Mark Andrews to write at least one follow-up
on Paint My Name In Black And Gold (his Sisters biography book to come) giving some comprehensive insight in the 1990s and 2000s.

Also, I think, the most recent version of "Those Singles That Never Happened" offers some interesting views ...
https://www.myheartland.co.uk/viewtopic.php?t=26798

Still some fascinating mysteries to resolve ...
apart from the fact, that no band had managed to successfully survive for such a long time without any release before The Sisters did it. To me, that is a value in itself.

Latest Bookmakers odds for new TSOM guitarist

- Von takes on guitar duties himself 8/1
- Mark Gemini-Thwaite 10/1
- Wolfie 20/1
- Choque Hosein 25/1
- Return of Adam Pearson 50/1
- Return of Gary Marx 100/1
- Anne Widdecombe 250/1
- Return of Wayne H.ussey with Craig Adams on bass 500/1


I actually thought of MGT just yesterday and had a chuckle, he's an awesome guy (and plays bass too see recent WonderStuff gigs...)

Can't really see it being Wolfie, not sure his health is up to a rigorous touring schedule, would also be awesome.


BTW, apparently Tim Bricheno is on BBC4's TOTP 1988 special talking about AAE...

Otherwise, well, who knows?

Surprised It's a conspiracy! One day we read that a former Sisters member is sure he was the inspiration for Harry Potter, next day J. K. Rowling announces a new book, and now Chris is out! He probably has to sit model for a phantasy novel!!1! Sad

Heck, Chris, thanks for all the energy and party and good solid work and whatnot you brought to the band. Your contribution was beyond great and I really hope you'll return.
We are not worthy! We are not worthy! We are not worthy!

Surely this one was inevitable with Chris getting an ever bigger name in the circus and more and more jobs. At some point, the paces of the projects you're involved in just don't fit anymore.

What next? Will Adam Pearson come back? Two lead guitars? Nah. Ben is way too good at his job anyway. There'll be another Chris or Ben, a yet unknown chap or lass that was carefully listened to by Andrew and hand picked. Another spooky story of a guitarist playing to peeps half hidden and slowly realising they are from one of his yearslong idol band.
My bet is on that. And it'll be a good one. Fresh thunder. Mr. Green

An actual sister as permanent member would be a good one, I need a star to drool over as well once in a while! Mr. Green
…which makes it coat time again, I guess.

Are there any rumors about who the new lad (or lass) is?

Just the usual speculation and wishful thinking; we'll find out soon enough, first gig is less than two weeks away.

It'll need to be a local if he wants to keep that M62 vibe.

... Laughing ... that tickles ... Laughing ... he might even bring a real bass player with him ... and, err ... additional vocals ... could be great if there was a way to bring it to fruition ... Very Happy ...

Somehow, though ... it doesn't seem likely to me. But one never knows ...

On stage, during show? That would make TSOM a performance art. Swell idea. Bring it on.

Or just get that Cult drummer with a Sisters shirt in that G’nR vid. Gee, I’d be genuinely excited about a Sisters gig with an actual instrument setup, instead of just worrying about the inevitably rotten sound at the concert.

Well, never mind. Let’s just have the left guitarist doing half of the guitars. The rest could be midi:ed, no probs.

Controversial Statement Time (to which I may/may not agree)

He's certainly made a (recent) career out of playing other people's songs
