Second Favourite

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.

...if I leave out a group of swedish artists who perform in swedish, it's, according to Audioscrobber...

- Johnny Cash (7th)
- Cat Rapes Dog (9th)
- Dido (12th)

...with Sisters in second place. I know the variation might seem a bit odd.

All told, a damned mix of various noise-pollution-merchants. It seems Sisters fans have wider tastes than other, ah, black-clad-ones.

After the Sisters, there's a rough tumble with Joy Divison coming out ahead, leaving The Cure and Nick Cave having a scrap at the bar and Dreadful Shadows and Rosetta Stone are eyeing each other up. The Bauhaus haven't even gotten the first round in yet...

Uh, all of the above.... plus a squillion one-hit-wonders! Let's not forget those. We all have a special place in our heart for people who explode onto the scene and disappear almost as quickly.
.... there is no semblance of rock 'n roll around here!

But to name something you're more likely to relate to in some manner, Joy Division, Leonard Cohen and Current 93 are wonderful, too.

But it's true for me, the Sisters are finest.
