He told me two years ago, when they were in Sweden. I donÂ´t know why. But I can understand him. Andrew is kind of living in present time and not in the past. And music and maybe even more so lyrics must have a meaning to Andrew he also once said, and if he cannot breathe meaning in the singing and give the songs a life there is no point recording them.centurionofprix wrote:When did he say that, if you don't mind the asking? I thought the bottleneck was previously Pearson's refusal to have his songs released online (perhaps for reasons somewhat touched upon here) but now Eldritch doesn't want to release the old stuff? Any idea why?playboy wrote: Only one problem....
Andrew has told me that he wonÂ´t, if he release a new record, include songs written by past members.
So we can forget Top Nite Out (well, at least the instrumental one we have heard on concerts, however Andrew has written another one with the same title, including lyrics....) as it is written by Adam Pearson.
And we can forget Crash And Burn, Summer, Slept and Come Together as the music is written by Adam.
And we can forget Will I Dream as it is written by Andrew, Adam and Srdjan Miodgragovic (also calls himself Mike Varjak).
And we can forget Susanne as the music is written by Srdjan.
Remaining songs are: Arms and Still......
So in order to release a new album ever they have to write some more songs and not change members so they have to start over all again......
And giving some of the songs are 13 years old I see his point.
And why not to record stuff written by a non-member seems to be part of the fact that he wants a possible new record to be more updated and a work within the band as they have been in the band and become more involved in todays Sisters as they first believed. Kind of respect for the new guys. They are active band members now and not second hand players recording tons of songs written by ex-members.
So, Andrew has got a few reasons not to record the "olders" songs. And I think he is doing right for not to.
