OK, I've decided to weed the recording. It will be available in a few days.

As for uploading it: I do have the necessary disk space but my provider severely limits my upload (capacity and traffic) so that is not really an option. Maybe if I can find a solution I might upload it anyway. I'll keep in touch !

Allright, the newspaper review I promised to post... The guy really found them s**t, but it seems he'd come over his own words, must admit some passages are quite funny Laughing Rolling Eyes

De Morgen, Bart Steenhout, 10-08-2005 - Obviousman translation wrote:
Lokerse Feesten – Sisters of Mercy kill own myth - * (=weak)

Alice in Thunderland

Little groups are so prone on rolling in their own myth as The Sisters Of Mercy. The flag bearers of post punk didn’t publish a new record the last fifteen years, didn’t want to talk with to press and only performed by high exception. Even there Andrew Eldritch and his constantly changing group liked to hide behind a thick cloud of mist so couldn’t even see more than some thin silhouettes on first row.
Despite business going this bizarre way the Sisters have remained enormously popular and they even still get in touch with a new generation of fans. Mondaynight they had come from all corners of Europe the see the legend alive, but they might’ve had quite a shock when Eldritch came on stage from between the spitting smoke machines. His well known raven hair had (probably had to, Eldritch is 46 already) made way for a bald skull. As compensation he cultivated a goatee that had precisely been soaked in black dye. And above that the Sister still wore his traditional sunglasses. Which is slightly idiotic, around midnight.
Count a black biker jacket with that which made him broader than he actually was, and he looked more like a leather queer that had a couple of carriers with Judas Priest behind his back. Only the uncomfortably deep graveyard voice had remained though it broke several times, so it looked like the tortured singer was impersonating a hurt animal stuck in a rusty clamp.
Musically everything, literally everything, had stuck to the old. The songs of the Sisters mirrored, when first published, perfectly the spirit of the time. The cold rhythms came out of the drum computer, the guitars sounded hypnotic and transparent and the keyboards gave it all something majestic. Two decennia later ‘First and Last and Always’, ‘On a Wire’ and ‘Flood’ were no more than echoes from a long lost past, they came with the bombast of thunder strikes out of the speakers. Even ‘Alice’, once the anthem of a whole generation of new wavers, degraded on the spot to something you could call –just spit out the dirty taste- goth-metal.
Just now and then the atmosphere of the bigger days shimmered through. ‘Dominion’ as well as ‘Vision Thing’ that was saved for the encores showed themselves healthy, and recalled us why exactly we loved this group so much as a teenager. These moments however were to scarce to make the balance tip into the right direction. It was nice to hear Eldritch took the dust of his ‘Temple of Love’, but the building he presented in Lokeren was windy and about to collapse. So, after a while you were waiting for someone that would save Eldritch from the complete defeat by hiding it all underneath a soundproof blanket. Alas: No mercy for the Sisters Of Mercy.


You know if a Top Ranked rock band would've done something like he described, they'd say the band had reinvented itself etc... Journalism nonsense...

About Emma: I was really surprised to hear that encore in Lokeren. I expected the Emma-lyrics but I like this version. Hope to hear it again in Hildesheim.

I've found another newspaper review. You can find the scan and some pictures I made on
http://www.lanky.be/lokeren.htm
In this newspaper the photo of the Sisters fans is bigger then the photos of Von Wink

It's interesting to see Adam just singing and not playing his guitar Neutral

well...if you listen to songs as "on A wire", that journalist must have been listening to another group that we did... Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

he should have listened to some recent boots, that way he could have agreed that this show was one of the best ever!!

It was Flood 2. It really suprised me. Von and Adam stood there so close to each other just like two good friends having a great time together.

Laughing

It was indeed no typo of me Wink

At least the reporter of the other newspaper copied the names of the songs off my setlist It wasn't me...

Still, I'm affraid not much reporters do comparing... Today they gave another group three stars because they did more or less exactly what the sisters did, of course in their style with their songs, but still Rolling Eyes
