Sisters spotting

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.

Probably of little interest to most, but Nikki Sixx sounds like he was a bit of a fan, and judging by the accompanying photo he wasn't the only one! http://www.fullthrottlerock.net/apps/bl ... ion-swine-

yeah I've read or heard more than once that he was referring to the Sisters. i think also on his twitter or something. re Mars: well considering that he is a lot older than the others and have been very ill, happy to see him alive--ish

Surprised not to see anything on the forum about Tony James recent appearance on the Christmas University Challenge show.
"and he played bass guitar for (The) Sisters of Mercy" according to Jeremy Paxman.
Still on iplayer if you have access to it. Search for Brunel University vs Reading University.

He seemed OK actually. He's certainly walking a lot better than he was. In very good spirits too.

Give ex-Sisters Nurse a lift to the boozer? Yes Mark, I'd say that counts. Extra points for the top news regarding his wellbeing :notworthy:

Patricia on Top of the Pops miming vocals for PWEI!

This is from 1990, but I only spotted it today.

Whoa, I had no idea there was any kind of push behind ..Cicciolina. I've got the EP but didn't know it was getting TV time!

Odd choice.

Maybe it's a deeply meta joke about the lack of TSOM activity?
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.

The xkcd comic has some javascript that responds to right-click on the image. What it has to do with the Sisters [s]I haven't a scooby[/s] is left as an exercise for the class.
