Who's your number 2?

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 agree with swinnow. There's a group who I think perform better live these days. So that group is no1 Sisters I guess no2. Is that allowed? :wink:

I do like me some of the tribal stuff - on the whole "Cowboys and Indians" thing, I come down on the side of the Indians.

Also quite partial to the whole Spacemen 3/Spiritualized/Spectrum axis, and related bands such as Loop.
At this stage I really need to add the Gun Club. Been on a major Gun Club trip this past coupla years.

A few yrs ago I bought a Chris Starling CD called "Planet Painkiller" at the time I thought he is very talented. So today Chris is N03. Not forgetting Chris rip

Yeah, he was an excellent songwriter. If you've not heard the two Starlings records (1992's Valid and 1994's Too Many Dogs), I highly recommend them.
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.

�Everything after Zoon� *is* Mourning Sun. At least it’s an album of actual, new music. Not too shoddy either, I might add.

I like Bethlehem, the band. Not afraid of change.

To be fair, I don't quite recall writing that :innocent:

"Garbage" is too strong, though I don't care for Mourning Sun very much. I think it is undermined by poor production. I do very much like the Prophecy single, though, and hope for a new album.
