Was sorry to see him go. They were due to go out on a farewell tour which got postponed due to COVID-19. Struggle to see how that will happen now, all due to respect to the other members, it's just JJ left from the classic line-up. I wonder if a one-off tribute to Dave show (with Jet Black in attend...

Chris Catalyst Podcast Interview

Does Chris still belong in Sisters Chat or is he for the Where Are They Now Section? :innocent: Either way, this is a great 90 minute interview, https://anchor.fm/TheMomentOfProust/episodes/Episode-Two---Chris-Catalyst-ed5ltv . He goes into a fair amount of detail about why he left The Sisters, his ...

Ditto. I guess prices are set already, but I was surprised at the leap in price.

So what's the official count for Eldritch? I counted 760 in the Wiki. But there was show in Athens(?) that he didn't come out for the encore, and all the times that 'Top Nite Out/Snub Nose' or 'Pipeline' get played in the live set and the lazy sod isn't on the stage. So he should be docked accordin...

Happy birthday to the man who is indirectly responsible for my mild interest in the history of The Sisters turning into the at times near obsessional quest for more knowledge.

Never met you, but always grateful for you getting this place up and running.

Don't think I realised how few shows Chris had done before Adam left/Ben joined. And how much longer some of the recent tours had been than I remembered at the time. There was only the 2005 Europe tour (and its accompanying Near Meth gig) where Adam and Chris were in the band together wasn't it? Th...

Most Sisters Gigs Other Than Eldritch

I'm leaving my job soon, so find myself with less and less to do between 9am and 5pm. Today's effort to give the illusion I was working was to find out who (other than Von and the Doctor) has played the most gigs under the Sisters/Near Meth Experience/Speed Kings name. I was quite surprised at the o...

I very much doubt there will be a tour after Peter's heart attack. He'll be taking it much more easily from now on if he knows what's good for him and I'm sure he does. A new album though, if these dates go well and the chemistry is good...who knows? Anyone know why they split up after Go Away Whit...

Did that help?

I think so, but as I've just had my third coffee of the morning, my heart's beating like a f*cked clock anyway.

Thanks though, when the caffeine wears off, hopefully a beautiful calm will settle over me.

Doubt it'd be Tony Iommi as he'd bring Geezer Butler along too.

None of which gets us anywhere nearer establishing who's playing guitar tomorrow, but ...
