Sisters spotting

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.

I bumped into Mr Catalyst as I was on the way home from work and he was on the way to the launderette yesterday afternoon. He is a jolly nice chap.

I was sure I saw Eldritch driving a car down my road yesterday (yes, I live quite near tomorrow's venue) but all those bald men wearing sunglasses look alike

So now, TSOM gained the same status as Slayer, Pink Floyd, Metallica - true icon popculture(?).

Academically spoken, no doubt about the huge impact of the logo on perception (& success) of the band / inside the band
