Sisters cover song wishlist.

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.

XidiouX's song suggestion is interesting, the song is good and somewhere in it hides the spirit of surf rock Sisters are actually play last period :notworthy:

Thurston Moore on backing vocals is always a good sign. From Wikipedia:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crush_with_Eyeliner

'Michael Stipe claims the song was inspired by the band New York Dolls, who, in his opinion, "knew how to exaggerate a song, to make it sound really sleazy and over the top." '

Can you think of any Sisters songs to which this description applies? Hint: Jim Steinman.

Orange Caramel's "Bangkok City" is basically a flawless, cruel Sisters song already. It's very Dionysian.

Or they could do this.

I can think of quite a few Scott Walker songs, e.g.:

Anything from Climate of Hunter. Here are the most gonzoid, More-ish (in every way) tracks:

I was about to ask if you didn't mean Father & Son but decided to check first. Indeed this song exists and it is good! ;-)

This one's too easy:
