Look at this bit though.
I know I get a rough time from a certain faction of the Sisters fan base, they really can be quite the sour bunch, but one thing they forget is that the sound of the guitars on FALAA is me and Gary Marx, not Eldritch. How can I plagiarise my own guitar style? Recycle, yeah, sure, I accept that accusation, but plagiarise? Come on. Listen to the Sisters before and after I was in the band, and that signature 12-string jingle jangle wasnâ€™t and isnâ€™t there. All Iâ€™ve done with this record is recognise a strength of mine and played to it. And my work with the Sisters isnâ€™t sacrosanct. I think the biggest offence that Iâ€™ve given to that hardcore element of Sisters fans is that I, and the m*****n, even exist and have never treated TSOM as the sacred cow that some people do. f**k â€˜em. The Sisters have made some great, great records, with and without me, but that was a long, long time ago. And before I am accused of anything else, let me just add that Craig and I spent a week in Chicago early in the year playing the songs of FALAA with Billy Corgan singing, and I f**king loved, really loved, playing those songs again, and being â€˜just the guitaristâ€™. It sounded and felt great and just as I remembered it sounding when we split up in 1985. Iâ€™ll go on record here and hold out the olive branch, and say that Craig and I would love to play these songs again, AND with Andrew Eldritch and Gary Marx. If theyâ€™re up for it, they know how to get hold of us. And if not? We may still just go ahead and do it anyway with Billy or someone else singing. Theyâ€™re great songs and deserve to be heard in the way we played â€˜em in 1985, as opposed to the way theyâ€™re being played by the current TSOM.
