GARY MARX dustbin

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.

Well, I like "Butter Fingers" - a bit.
But the voice...

But it is a nice personal letter with the free CD (actually it's better than the CD, sounds like someone doing a bad Bob Geldof).

Has anyone outside of Britain received a copy of the CD? I am overseas. Do you think that I can get a copy? Would it make a difference if I provided an address of some buddies in Germany?

Simon Hinkler from The Missi*n also used an ebow alot (on 'Wasteland' for example). Billy Duffy used one for the ambient background intro to 'She Sells Sanctuary'. Jimmy Page used to get a similar effect with an actual violin bow!
The Nephs song Peter Yates used one on was Dawnrazor (with a bottleneck as well).

Yes, I received mine in the USA, about 10 days after I wrote in and asked if he'd send it to me. He replied, said he would, and did. Then I ripped the package open and tore the nice letter in 2. s**t.

Just got my copy of the single this morning. I dunno. I have this feeling that it will grow on me. Granted the voice isn't great but I find it unintrusive and the guitars sound really cheap in it. The only thing that gets me are the drums. The snare in Butterfingers gets really annoying.

Think I'll buy the album anyway :)

Oh by the way, Anyone know any good guitar techs around the Bedfordshire area? My guitar needs new volume switches, rewiring and set up.
