Never too young?

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.

My daughter is barely 20 months old, but is showing promising signs of musical taste. I was trying to keep her quiet today while I did some housework (because that's just how rock'n'roll life is at Mackem Towers these days) and fired up YouTube to play her some age-appropriate material. Unfortunately, my YouTube quickly veers into odd places.

Up comes Temple of Love, and there's an excited chirrup of 'Music! Music!' from the front room. Can't wait till she tells her mum that love is always over in the morning.

I've also had her dancing to Qntal tracks on occasion, and she's been known to bop along to Rosetta Stone in the back of the car. She's getting plenty of black clothes for her birthday.

My two sons are now both big gig goers and have extremely catholic musical tastes ranging from Abba to Zappa as we used to say. However, there are two bands neither can abide, The Sisters and The Mish.... I blame the parents :lol:

I'm sure the enthusiasm will wear off quickly once she's old enough to realise that daddy isn't the greatest man alive and is really an embarrassing old fool. For now, I'll settle for adulation.

:lol: Glad to hear I'm not the only HL parent who has failed in his duty. My kids always demanded that I turned off TSOM or "the man who can't sing" as they called AE.

There was a brief moment of hope a few years back when we had a spare ticket one night when a friend cried off at the last minute and one of my daughters (who would have been about sixteen) said she'd come. But although she loved the "backing track", thought Ben was "hot" and Chris was "cool", she thought that Andrew was "even worse than on the records" and "the other two should get rid of him and get in a proper singer." She also felt self-conscious because "everyone else here is at least twice my age." :( :roll: :oops:

My youngest has met Mr Catalyst when we have been out and about in Headingley and he adores NMA so I haven't totally failed, or is that just a Dad clutching at straws. He did think Chris was cool tho lol
