Thank you all, had a nice meal, loaded the car and moved the next day for good. The Avatar came about when I wrote a children's book as part of a Masters in art photography, giving all the characters in it animal surnames so I became James Goat. Decided to use said character as my avatar then though...

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...

4 or 5 but an occasional 6 isn't unusual I actually enjoy it burnt. But the butter needs to be soft or it shatters when spreading. :eek: I couldn't eat burnt toast like that, might as well mix coal dust with butter and eat that. :lol: Now crumpets however, they do need a good crispy burnt top, they...

I love both bands, though I think they do come from different places musically, the sisters from a harder harsher background more Stooges and Suicide than REM's more maudlin Patti Smith background. Regardless of liking or not both AE and MS seem to spend a lot of time considering the words they are ...

How about a Sisters residency in Leeds for a week next Feb? Each night, the various line ups play a classic set list from their era, and at the end of the week, we get to vote who we'd like to see Andrew go on tour with? Then again, perhaps to democratic for Von. So how about the various incarnatio...

I think Chris's writing style may not have been right for the Sisters, though given the three albums proper being so different F knows why. Perhaps the insanity in the world recently with two blond mopped nutters as leaders of major nations has given Von something to write about or made him angry en...

Well, today's the day. See you on the other side. Somewhere in France, there's a very nervous person sitting around, desperately trying to remember everything they've learned. No matter how good you are as a guitarist, learning off an entire set from scratch is daunting. And tomorrow we’ll all st...
