A Sisters Tribute album?

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.

That "we'll try to ignore everything you put out in the last thirteen years" line hasn't aged well.

I've heard of precisely two of the bands on that compilation and if they're representative of the rest, I shall give this one a hard no.

Jaysus, I've heard of three of the bands. Better find those crimpers and bangles.

BTS' Romeo Down really puts it all into perspective. Should be included in this comp.

I'd heard Abba wanted to cover 'Good Things' but their producer of choice was unavailable. Real shame.

I think this is one album where I will feel no guilt whatsoever about listening to it on Spotify :P

Hasn't at least half of this already been released? I know (or I think I know) I've heard a lot of that. I guess the Paradise Lost cover is tolerable, but from what I recall everything else is terrible.

When it comes to Sisters' covers, the best ones that come to mind are Lambchop's cover of This Corrosion and the Supersuckers doing Afterhours.

How on this COVID-infested planet is this even news?

As noted above, there are five(!) tribute albums...I knew of three and was already depressed about it but ran to Amazon to count and sure enough:

1) First And Last And Forever: A Tribute To The Sisters Of Mercy (1993)
2) Monochrome: A Tribute To The Sisters Of Mercy (2000)
3) A Mercyful Tribute to The Sisters (2000)
4) Thank You! (A Tribute To The Sisters Of Mercy) (2002)
5) The Violent Hour - A Tribute To the Sisters Of Mercy (2013)

I bought the first two used a long time ago. Overall, abominable. First and Last and Forever has some funny Amazon reviews, I also put one up years ago. David E. Williams' cover of Black Planet takes a terrific beating all around. Across those two albums, I would say there are maybe four tracks in total that I would replay...otherwise there's so much bad baritone goth it's shameful. And to be clear, I couldn't even tell you if I replayed said track in the entire 2010s. Most of these outfits seem to have been put together just to record these s**t covers.

Do we count the Andrew Liles album as "tribute"?

Covers of Sisters' songs tend to be dreadful, but I quite like this one.

Adrenochrome by Lymon Willis is a fine one, i heard it today first time ( i think ) but like it. Thanks for sharing it.

Hollows ToL is an interesting one, but would like to hear it in a live cover even from a phone cam to judge it.

From the songs in compilation, and haven't heard before, 1959 gives something new but it would need a Steinman to give an appropriate Borgia Party feel in it... :bat: :bat:

Sisters covers require originality.
Nobody should ever listen to my cover of giving ground. But I'm pretty proud of my version of Summer, as the best attempt two 16 year olds could do.

I actually think that's pretty good. Quite listenable. Well done. Particularly if you made it when you were 16!

Yeah, I like this one too. I think anyone who does a straight cover of a Sisters song is generally on to a loser. The best one by far that I've ever heard is Lambchop's This Corrosion.

Now THAT'S how you cover a track.

Do any of these tribute albums have covers of the unreleased tracks?
