The Sisters On This Day

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.

3 from today (25th October)

(Allegedly), 1982, the Hacienda, Manchester - https://sisterswiki.org/Mon,_25-Oct-1982. Annoyingly, I got rid of my copy of Peter Hook's book 'How Not to Run a Club'. Pretty sure it had the complete listings of every show that went on there.

Definitely 1984, Hanley (one of the five towns that make up Stoke-on-Trent, and where - many years later - I got my Sisters album) - https://sisterswiki.org/Thu,_25-Oct-1984. The Wiki says this was not recorded, but Dark Circle Room (http://darkcircleroom4.blogspot.com/201 ... -hall.html) did have a copy available for download some years back. Grateful for any into on which is correct!

And finally, 1990, Brasilia - https://sisterswiki.org/Thu,_25-Oct-1990

Release the bats!

There have been 5 gigs on the 29th October over the years, my one handed typing means that hyperlinking them will take me until tomorrow (defeating the purpose of this), but what we have is:

Imperial College, London 1982
LA 1983
Plymouth 1984
Rio 1990
Montreal 2008

Civic Hall, Guildford 1984

The Palladium, Worcester 2008
My copy of Guildford is only the first 45 minutes (presumably one side of a C90 cassette from 'back in the day'). Is this all that survives?

One show only falling on 2nd November, Aylesbury Friars back in 1984

The only time they've played my hometown. Unfortunately I was 11 and more concerned about whether my mother would be getting me Arena by Duran Duran for Xmas :lol:

Only one show has actually happened in Sisters history on 12th November:

1984, Maxim Gorki in Stuttgart - https://sisterswiki.org/Mon,_12-Nov-1984. The bootleg looks good too, if you can ignore the missing 'The' and the ever-so-slightly wrong font. The show is a good one.

In 1990, the show at the Forum, Ludwigsburg was cancelled due to illness.
