What's your favourite neglected Sisters song?

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.

Which do you (secretly) wish they'd play live?

It's occurred to me that there are quite a few readily available (ie NOT obscure b-sides) Sisters tracks which are never played live, or even discussed. This seems strange to me, for a band with a slim body of work and a great many obsessive fans (ie us lot :oops: )

I've personally always had a soft spot for 'Never Land' and 'Torch'. in fact, they are definately two of my favourite Sisters songs.

So which is your favourite 'lost' track?

'Torch' man myself. Always have been; always will be.

Big moments in my life.

Loki was never worshiped as the other Gods,
Which is quite understandable.

Fix, but the version they were playing in 1992/3. That should have been a proper release rather than Alice 1993 (which I like also).

Torch, it was the song that made me a fan of the Sisters.

The first time I heard Torch it sent shivers down my spine and made the hair on the back of my neck stand up.

It's one of my all time favourite songs.

Torch, no question. All the others have been played live already anyway.

It's a shame they cannot do the reverse part live, though :D

It's weird, the backwards part almost sounds like they say "...sing the wrong song, I sing the.." at one point. :eek:

I can hear words in it sometimes too. It's like the back-masking Judas Priest thing though; the human brain is very good at picking out patterns... even when there's no pattern to pick out. Like the audio equivalent to a Rorshach ink-blot ;)

Yeah, they may have been played live a few times many moons ago, but they have now been kinda forgotten about by Von and his cronies (that's what I meant when I called them 'neglected').

Well if that's the case, my vote should be changed to the almighty (;)) DAMAGE DONE!

(Though I'd settle for Home Of The Hit-Men, followed by Good Things, Bury Me Deep and 1959.)

the version of Neverland (a fragment) on the Smoke And Mirrors at The Forum DVD is a killer

:lol:

hal's site is way more useful for that sort of stuff than the tours site... not that the tours site isnt bloody good, but hal's motives are different so his archive is more complete.

i reckon hal's site should be inroporated into the official sisters site's gigography ;D :D
