Article in popMATTERS on the Goth scene in Leeds

Does exactly what it says on the tin. Some of the nonsense contained herein may be very loosely related to The Sisters of Mercy, but I wouldn't bet your PayPal account on it. In keeping with the internet's general theme nothing written here should be taken as Gospel: over three quarters of it is utter gibberish, and most of the forum's denizens haven't spoken to another human being face-to-face for decades. Don't worry your pretty little heads about it. Above all else, remember this: You don't have to stay forever. I will understand.

Most of the google alerts I get for The Sisters Of Mercy are about the nuns, but this popped up today.
Worth a read. 8)

In some ways I find this stuff fascinating but in other ways it's a bit frustrating: "Hey look at all this really cool stuff that was happening when you were 13 and didn't have a clue!" :lol:

The regularly over-flowing toilets were the scariest thing about the Phono in '82/3 :lol:. In those days you never joined a taxi queue you just walked back up the hill to the wasteland around the Uni, usually via Tony's caf.

The Warehouse of a weekend was much more upmarket with a fair few new-romantic/proto-g*th student nurses attending as part of the attraction. Fav to the George and then the Warehouse was a regular trek.
....if I have to explain, then you'll never understand....
