New Tour - Opening Track

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.

The long intro version of Kiss The Carpet that can be heard opening the set on some 91 bootlegs was pretty awesome.

This time round I'm hoping for SKOS/CN (not first, just in general).

Was really pleased to hear FALAA & Marian last time round, came away a lot happier than I did from the appalling (and 85 era songs free) Astoria Silver Bullet gig.

I am genuinely very excited about this show.

Not the way The Sisters would play it, it wouldn't. I can guarantee that.

Since the sound usually is awful in the first couple of songs I really hope they open with the crappiest ones.

BUT, on the other hand Von suddenly cares about the sound then I say FIX, otherwise I will be in the bar.

You know I wouldn't put it past ...them... to use the Jihad as a live intro in much the same way as a fragment of Afterhours was used for the last tour - if only to keep the obsessed fans happy in the way that such pointless little things can.

they should start with a cover:

the goombay dance band's "seven tears"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e8mtV4kTAPU

well, if the b*stards aren't going to do boney m's "rasputin" they could at least do a song by their alter egos plus, they were massive in hamburg in the early 80s, so i'm sure they would strike a chord with von) ;) :lol:

Shall we start one of those mindless Facebook groups to force :von: to use it as an opener? They always work. :roll: :P
