2 questions

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.

1. :von: on the Twitters? Or an impostor?

2. Regarding Miss Detroit - reading an article in Teh Graun about Shakespear's Sister, it occurred that Her Ladyship might not actually have been Miss Detroit, but in fact Ms Levy.

Thoughts?

Since there's been no activity on the tw@ since 2016 and it looks like there was just a series of tw@s on the same date that appeared to be Under The Influence, I figured that it might just as well have been him! :lol:

Their tw@er is inactive since November 2018, with no news of upcoming tour, strange. Remind me please, who, allegedly, runs this account?

I think we did figure it our once that their official twitter thing was run by Chris, but for one reason or another he has obviously been told not to anymore. Me personally i was very happy with that account couse we were told fast about cancellations, stage time and so on.

That's what I recall, and it's intriguing coincidence that once Chris seems to be full with The Other Band, flow of information via tw!er stopped.

Another coincidence is that :von: now very likely makes the live updates, I mean who else would be bothered translating all the city names into the local language? Does not feel much like Chris.

Her real name is Levy, it's no secret now we have sites such as wikipedia. However if you'd have asked me the question 30 years ago before the advent of the worldwide web, I'd have told you that the song credit on their first single is "Fahey/Levy/Feldman" and when the album was released not long afterwards that credit had been changed to "Fahey/Detroit/Feldman".

Is there a connection to the Sisters that I've forgotten (apart from the tenuous "the both have sister in the name".)

The performance on Graham Norton was a bit cringeworthy.
