when I saw them for the first time at Brixton in '97, they had no problem selling out 2 x 4,000 tickets to that double date, already then several years since any release. And even if there was Internet in '97, it was still uncommon, and certainly not possible to order any tickets online. I guess I ...

The stalls floor is actually pretty tiny in there. And spacious too, can't remember it ever being packed that tightly.

I think the capacity options at the RAH revolved around whether the stalls were seated or not and how many tiers to open. Makes sense. Did the sisters have upstairs open? The only other footage I’ve paid much attention to from around that era was the banshees live video filmed there. They seemed ...

Didn't WEA stop that tour in 1992 - insisted he had to be The Sisters Of Mercy and had to have a band?

1992, I'd say, after the Tune In - Turn On - Load Out Tour with all those market-induced cancellations, the Reading Festival, the release of Temple of Love (1992) on 20 April 1992, though not in the US, and a few cuts before The Sisters of Mercy's so far last officially released song Under The Gun ...

Yup, in fairness, Craig was the first and last real bass player in the band. Both Patsy and Tony were more on the promo side, and while Tony played live bass for a while, his studio contributions to Vision Thing were very limited. By that logic, everyone post Andreas = not a real guitar player ;) I...

czuczu's got it, Winterthur was Tony James' last show. On Oct 21st, 1991, about two months later, he told Von he was leaving the band. And what's the actual reason we no longer have one apart from falling out with a bass player in the past.... Money. The next year, Von opened up about the lack of b...
