Latest Sisters purchase

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.

Anyway, I think it's better to have other pictures than what you find elsewhere in the web and - everybody can contribute and have a part in the Wiki, even if they don't/can't put things up there themselves. I think that is a nice contribution to the fanbase as much as from the fanbase.

So, yes. If you find time to make some decent pictures/scans yourself, I should very much appriciate, send them up there and create the according page with the additional infos I've got or those you might as well be able to deliver ... :D ... as soon as I find time. That can be a few days as well. :wink:
I'll upload some stuff when I get the chance. The wiki is something I know much about - I was the one that originally registered the domain and hosted it.

:lol: ... yes, I know. A beautiful idea ... :notworthy: ...

However apart from you, nobody seems to know much about wikis ...
When I started here, I didn't even have the least idea of HTML ... :wink: ...

Now, there are so many ugly vandaliser (and also some wrongly created :oops: ) pages in it
... if you know how to handle that, please give a hint to those entitled to do something about it ...
I'm well prepared to make a list of stuff to be deleted... :D :lol: ...


Here are the current threads referring to the Wiki ...

And thanks for any uploads ... ;D ...

Vision Thing arrived in the post (not heard all the Sister's stuff yet). Not sure about the sound, it's like David Bowie's Tin Machine a bit too much. 'More' is good, obviously.

Exactly: Vision Thing is very far away from the somewhat overload hystery (and moralisticisms) of Tin Machine.
Not that I didn't like Tin Machine but Vision Thing is nothing the like ... although You Could Be The One is not on it ... :lol: ;D ...

Anyway, Bowie is definitely great - but not absolutely perfect.
The Sisters of Mercy have always done their thing in a way and in places Bowie couldn't touch.
Something I had always been missing with Bowie's music or anybody else's.
A pity they don't do records anymore, there's nothing like them ... :innocent: ...

The Sisters don't really have enough of a catalogue to make any kind of comparison to Bowie. They released three albums all pretty similar - baritone voice and drum machine - all excellent.

Bowie has been the greatest influence on late 20th Century music. He has released many albums of many diverse styles

There is no comparison.

I agree, basically ... :notworthy: ... though I had no intention to compare them! AND I find The Sisters' singles, EPs and albums quite diverse as well ... :wink: ...

Btw, as some of you might have guessed, my latest purchase were two VoC test sleeves. However, I cannot post a picture, as I these are still in mail.
