Know the whereabouts of any ex-Sisters members or hangers-on? Got any amusing anecdotes about members of the band, past or present? Post 'em here...

Who's the replacement?
The replacement, presumed temporary until proven otherwise, is Kai from Esprit D'Air. There's a ton of full show videos on YT from the current European tour, feel free to check them out, he's pretty good, which is of course a total understatement.

However utterly bastard groovy Kai may be, it is indeed a shame about Dylan. The thread covering the first night at the Roundhouse in the Live section here on HL offers description of events, and of course more than a ton of wild speculation. His departure (aka sacking) is sad, but life goes on.
There is increasing evidence to suggest that Chris may have been being sarcastic.

As you can read on his Instagram page, Dylan is apparently officially out. If I interpret that correctly...
Definitely not goth!!!

A short conversation between myself and Dylan on insta:

eastmidswhizzkid: Hi Dylan, thank you for everythijng you did in the Sisters. We appreciaed it and love you man


Dylan Smith : "@lee_whizzkid Thank you for your kind words and support. I am proud of what we managed to achieve in my time in the band. I was a fan before I joined and still am. Catch you round 😎"


eastmidswhizzkid: "@dylan_chrisford_smith Peace & Love Sister Dylan. Always"
:von: & :kiss:

BTW- if youre on insta check out the little vid that this chat is under - that tune he is playing would have been a great Sisters song wouldnt it....
Well I was handsome and I was strong
And I knew the words to every song.

"No! The words you sang were wrong!"

Riff sounds like an interpretation on hushabye mountains structure. Wouldn't that be a lovely cover?

It's nice to see Dylan back on stage, doing what makes him happy
When Ruffers and I met him outside the Roundhouse after the Friday night drama he seemed utterly distraught. I was genuinely concerned about him
I have seen The Sisters at The Paradiso. I will die happy
With massive thanks to Ruffers for his company and help.

He could do a lot worse than Die Krupps. Glad for him!
And here's a clip from yesterday and he already looks very settled :D

i like the bloke no end. hes a good lad is Dylan - went out of his way to connect with the fanbase publicly and privately just like ben and chris have. and hes a rock star through and through -such folk can be far harder ego-wise than our Smiggy. even his uppity-yet-beautifully-shy super-model girlfriend was made for him- they have the same birthday! awwwww. :kiss:

EDIT: smiggy just posted a pic of him on stage with dk and Ben Christo commented- those 2 have obviously remained good friends. 8)
