Rare photos?

THE place for your Sisters-related comments, questions and snippets of Sisters information. For those who do not know, The Sisters of Mercy are a rock'n'roll band. And a pop band. And an industrial groove machine. Or so they say. They make records. Lots of records, apparently. But not in your galaxy. They play concerts. Lots of concerts, actually. But you still cannot see them. So what's it all about, Alfie? This is one of the few tightly-moderated forums on Heartland, so please keep on-topic. All off-topic posts will either be moved or deleted. Chairman Bux is the editor and the editor's decision is final. Danke.

At first I want to say my greatest THANX to Otto for those pictures
(yesterday I couldn't open them) :smile: :smile: :smile: :smile: :smile:
I never saw Von without shades.
But as an answer to Dan I want to point to one thing:
I have an English newspaper SOUNDS from October 13, 1984.
There's an interview with Von and a couple of pictures
and by my opinion (but I can mistake, of course)
this person is very similar to this one on Otto's pictures.
Sorry, I'm still an idiot
who don't know how to upload photos to internet
but in the case I'm really the only Heartlander who has this newspaper
(but I don't think so)
I could ask my wife to scan those pictures and
after this I could send them by e-mail with attacment to somebody (for example to Q-Boy)
who can upload them to Heartland-Forum.

whether altered or not I'm pretty sure they are of him...but if they aren't altered then it'd be strange for him to be caught this way, especially as they look like they would date from 83-84-ish.

Imagine the scene...

(Sleazy music playing etc)

Photographer: that's great love...but have you ever considered shots without ....them?

AE( young, blushing, but needing the money)Oh.. I couldn't...I mean I'd do topless for the sake of my career.. but..

Photographer: it'd just be between us two- if you didn't like them no-one else would have to see them...

AE: I don't know...


Photographer: go on, you little minx, you know you want to...

and the rest is history...

I can think of a couple of other reasons Eldo might have dark circles round his eyes for most of 84

Don't know, probably Kenneth, but DEFINITELY Charles Hawtrey as Wayne (presuming Dennis Norden is unavailable)

do you think that, like, without his glasses on, that if he looked at those flowers in a certain way that they'd burst into flames?

Or would the flowers just feel really tired and would the petals wilt and droop?

Those photos claim to have been taken on 1 June 1984, if you look at the gigography on the official site you see:
26 May 1984 The Hague, Netherlands Paard van Troje
27 May 1984 Hamburg, W Germany Markthalle
28 May 1984 Frankfurt, W Germany Batschkapp
29 May 1984 Detmold, W Germany Hunky Dory
30 May 1984 Bochum, W Germany Zeche
31 May 1984 Lier, Belgium Pallieterhal
01 June 1984 Deinze, Belgium Brielpoort
02 June 1984 Amsterdam, Netherlands Melkweg
03 June 1984 Groningen, Netherlands Vera

That's a pretty good reason for the black rings under the eyes...

Yeah, when you see he played Lier on the 31st... We Lier-folks tend to wear other peeps out, y'know... :grin: :grin:

I can upload them to my webserver then post the link here if you could email them to me, if that'd be easier. Let me know :smile:

Maybe I'm too naive and those pictures I have are not anything special but as I saw these Otto's ones they came to my mind.
So I'll send them to you in the beginning of next week
and you'll decide are they worth enough or not.
(I'm not sure my wife has a possibility to scan them at work right tomorrow.)

Are you implying that Von is some kind of a darklord of the darkest darkness? :grin:

Actually, I believe Eldritch has a tendency to develop "bags" underneath his eyes, like Clinton or John Hurt instead of simple "dark lines".
Hope it hasn't happened!!!

Possibly a stupid question, but are the first two photos actually Von without shades?

:eek: :???:

An' now I've read the rest of the posts - yes - a very bloody stupid question.
Perhaps my wife of 22 days has managed to shag my brains out? :grin:

If you look closely enough at the This Corossion video you can see his eyes when his shades slip. There's also an Interview in Melody Maler back in January 1990 when he's wearing very small round shades that show his eyes reasonably well ( they are, as he claims, a very dirty green!).
