PS I'm listening to that Roskilde boot on youtube this morning, and its f**king epic. Yes, you can hear the vocals properly, but also the attitude and swagger is epic. It sounds fresh and aggressive. ...

Yeah, the deteriorating voice thing is a red herring - that's a reason not to tour, rather than not to record.

All sorts of fun and games can happen in a recording booth. Plenty of notably s**t s ...

Just pledged. Not a huge fan of the early years of the sisters, but a big fan of passion and enthusiasm so it would feel wrong not to support this.

They skipped Dublin and Belfast on the last tour, but came the tour before, so I reckon we're due an Irish date next time around. I went to both gigs and they were both packed.

I was surprised the ...

Just on the off chance this forum carries any weight, I too would love to hear a new album. I'd settle for a properly recorded live album to be honest.

Who am I kidding. I'd settle for ANYTHING.

That sounds fantastic. They really should employ Lisa as a gigging member of the band. They obviously get on well with her, and the stage set up just looks right with a fourth person out front.

I love the Sisters, and have no hankering after some return to 1983 - I like the guitar driven sound and bombast of the current incarnation.

but . . . .

I think they need new songs. I preferred ...

On the plus side, some work appears to have been done on the Sister's Spotify page.

Last week sometime, the file for Temple of Love 92 was overwritten by the original 1983 version. I noticed it whe ...

Absolutely epic show. By far the best of the three or four I've seen. Loud, clear, powerful and a crowd that was totally up for it.

Looking forward to Dublin tonight.

Guitars seem a little low, but this sounds great. You can freakishly hear almost every word Von sings.
