This recent Danzig interview makes mention of the sisters:

The relevant part:
Quote:

What kind of band do you think fits on Blackest of the Black?
Anything dark. So it doesn’t have to be, like, black metal or anything like that. It just has to be something dark. So a band like Sisters of Mercy would be fine for it. And then you have a band like Dimmu Borgir or Marduk who would be fine for it, also. That’s how we approach it.


I realize that this isn't saying that Danzig has even necessarily been in contact with the band, but it would be an interesting lineup.

I think Von would prefer to go on audition for Britain's Got Talent.

I quite like Glen, when he's not being overly po-faced (ie, not very often). I don't think he has a cat in hell's chance in getting The Sissies on that tour, and I doubt very much he has any idea what they sound like now as it is.

Hank's story about the Sisters playing with Flag remains quite funny though.

I'd love more details. I've always heard references, but I can't be bothered to go read any of Hank's books.

Black Coffee Blues is one of the most depressing volumes I have ever read. Wind In The Willows it is not.

'Solipsist' and 'Eye Scream' are far grimmer. 'Do I come Here Often - Black Coffee Blues Pt. 2' has two fantastic interviews with Isaac Hayes and Jerry Lee Lewis and it's since then that he ended the Rollins Band and does Spoken Word tours instead, which for anyone who's been to one you'll know how fantastic they are Very Happy

Initials CC and that bloke who wrote Who Killed Martin Hannet also make refs. to "Sisters of Mercy"

BTW - there's tons of spoken word Hank on Spotty

Agreed.
Get in the Van is my favourite of his books, followed by the one where we tours the Black Flags songs to raise awareness/funds for the West Memphis 3 (I think its called Broken Summers). He gives Eldritch a fair bit of credit for getting to the end of their support set, saying many lesser bands crumbled under the same circumstances Laughing

8.9.84 New York NY: At the Ritz. Second time here in a short period. Of all the bands in the world...the Sisters of Mercy will be opening for us tonight. Smoke machines, all kinds of lights were brought in for them. What a crock of weak-assed s**t they are.
We drive to Florida after the show tonight. A long sweaty night after the long sweaty set. No real sleep for a good long time. Oh f**k, the Sisters are soundchecking with "Purple Haze". I just did something funny. I yelled at them, "Leave Hendrix's ass alone, you limey fags!" They stopped playing and looked at me. That was the funniest thing i've seen in a while.

8.11.84 Miami FL: The show at the Ritz was one of the best ones we've ever played. The best part was seeing the poor Sisters trying to maintain their pose with the front row trying to beat the s**t out of the singer, swinging at his head and s**t. What great crowds we get. After the show, this kid told us we could shower at his place and that it was on the way. We drove all over the f**king place until daybreak and found out that it was out of the way and his mother wouldn't let us take a step inside. We drove about 30 hours to Tampa and played this outdoor place and it was okay. Crowd was kind of f**ked but whatever. Now we're in a dive in Miami. I have some days off coming. I'm going up to DC.
Later: A girl shoved four one dollar bills down my shorts during our set. That's cool. I dried them off and bought myself dinner.
I am drowning, but it's my own hands that are pulling my feet to the bottom. I seem unable to stop myself from killing myself. It's a continuous drowning process.

i got huge sentiment for Danzig for his first solo album and Misfits so i'd love to see him even without old, bald 'n' stubborn howler.

in a slightly more generous mood some years later, Mr. Rollins did play the Dominion (I think) Video on an MTV picks show. Comments along the lines of: I don't like 'em, but respect to Eldritch for making it through a Flag support slot.

What a cracking night out that would have been.

From "Smile, You're Travelling" in the entry 12-3-98, Hank is doing something for MTV2 & he has to pick some videos. Lucretia is one of them, of which he says "Never heard the song, never saw the video, but you gotta love the Sisters guy. I respect him for getting through his set when opening for Black Flag in 1984 and having the audience try to disembowel him. Oh, the hatred! Oh, Lucretia!"
