Eldritch-isms

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.

Rock city, notts, '84 has several:

"one thing we've learnt in our many years, is a right hand is a horrible thing to lose....i'd retract yours, my man."

"i'm not anorexic alright? i'm compact."

[whilst all three guitars are tuning-up] "what i want to know is: if i can sing along, so blissfully out of tune, why cant you guys just play out of tune? [aside] well one of them does actually."

and from leeds xxx 16/2/11 when the drum-machine dies (paraphrased as best i can remember:)
"we have to attend to our machinery....why don't you fuck amongst yourselves and i'll join in if it looks interesting.." [almost immediate return of the doktor]"..or an oppurtunity lost methinks."
Waiting for another ....

"Don't get cocky Dave, I've got the metal".

I can't get any of the other missing bits.

He's probably talking about the mic stand which can be used to hit naughty people in the front row.

Maybe the missing bits are in German. To me it seems that his introducing the band... sort of.

Will be keeping on investigating.

2 from the same gig..

"Some day, everything you need is just gonna fall out of the sky"

I misheard the second as "The next one's called 'How Many Ks in Electric'", which I thought was fantastically witty. I still don't hear Elektra if I listen to it now...

I always thought he was saying "This song is about the mainland... you wouldn't understand."
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.

If he keeps true to his promise and does his Donald Trump album then that title is still a most appropriate title.

According to Urban Dictionary's top definition.
Rain Man
Someone who likes to make it rain (throw money on strippers in the clubs). Usually carries alot of money in his hand, ready to throw.
Young Dan was the richest rain man in the club, he was tossing dough like no tomorrow.

Rain man is also a film about an autistic savant.
its also possible he said "this song is about a reign, man" (reign as in that of a monarch etc, man is in "this is really heavy, maan") or even "rain, man" (as in mother russia rain down, man as in previous theory).
