It was 25 years ago today...

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.

Wonder if The Royal Albert Hall will ever reverberate to the sound of Doktor Avalanche again?.... doubt it somehow.

I'm reminded every day (when I look in the mirror, bend over, attempt to do anything physical) just how old I'm getting.

Right - so here's what we do:

- get the recording of Wake (on DVD for preference), and have a professional AV engineer clean it up.
- rent the RAH for an evening
- put in a massive video screen and ginormous speakers
- sell tickets
- donate proceeds to the AHTaylor Home for Kitties that Sleep Under The Hill.

Who's with me?
