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.

I have just noticed an error on the wiki page for Norwich. It says the first gig since 1984. They played Norwich in 2006 cause I was there. ;D

Can't believe it was 28 years ago. Got the coach down from Leeds, seemed to take forever to get there. Top nite out indeed though.
