SISTERS SONGS COVERED.

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.

30 years later and they've succeeded in having that drum machine sound even tackier (is that a word, 'tackier'?) than the doc on the worst sisters demo tracks...

I don't mind that at all. Some great energy behind the performance - quite punky and I'm all for that.

Not bad at all. Although they could make it slightly longer, this way the duration is similar to usual Sisters gig. :wink:

The singer seems to prefer his own notes, unfortunately the band didn't adapt (or vice versa)

Yes, my thoughts exactly.
The most successful tyranny is not the one that uses force to assure uniformity but the one that removes the awareness of other possibilities, that makes it seem inconceivable that other ways are viable, that removes the sense that there is an outside.

After these latest two versions, it seems to be the vocals and not the guitar part which are the tricky bit that lesser mortals can't manage.

It's quite low and quite soft, a combination that's hard to mimick when you don't have a natural baritone like that...

It must be More day.

Either a Portuguese ambient version that sounds more like Afterhours :

available as a free download here, along with Preacherman, So Alive and other goth staples :

Or for something related but completely different, one I should have posted in General Chat under the WTF thread :

Mexican tribute band doing Alice. Vocals start promisingly, then take a more, erm, original path. Far too audible to be authentic too.

I know that most people will have had enough of solo artists called Lisa desecrating Sisters' classics for one year, but trust me, this one's better than most :

And the latest stop on the seemingly never-ending world tour of Sisters covers...Turkey.
This guy has respectfully covered both Alice and Lucretia with his various projects :

You can hear his take on Lucretia on The Rorschach Audio's Facebook page.

Funhouse: B&S - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MezB7_BOQwo
Sons of Neverland: NTTC - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MFH8ofunXDk

There are nice bits to both of these (and the usual problems for Sisters covers).
