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.

I've got the black one, found it for a decent price at a record fair in Brussels.
Nice heavy vinyl (180gr?) and the sound is good to my ears.
Here's a pic I found of the back:

All in all a fine addition to the collection :D

After a longer period of inactivity, I bought 2 items:

1) Black Planet - Polish postcard single (the 1st of the postcard singles for me) :D

2) Live in Hull lp ltd. to 10 (?) copies :oops: - yes, I have to admid, I bought a copy. I know, this item was offered to some of us by the Australian seller and others declined to buy, but the price was o.k. IMO and my copy was way cheaper than the one sold on Ebay

Was not falaa, or floodland, with different matrix numbers in Lisbon railway station. :(

I tried to explain the importance of these finds to Mrs PiB. I stated excitedly, they were different. She was like 'but you've got those LP ten times'. She wasn't impressed.

So they're still there 25EUR each in the independente LP section ;)
