What has Eldritch ever done for you?

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.

Apart from the records, the gigs, the lyrics, the snidey remarks, the shades, the hats, the flowery shirts...

Me? Songs Of Leonard Cohen. Would never have found it otherwise.

You?

Gave us the idea to take certain substances and listen to his music until late on into the night with flashy lights and smoke machines - ahhhh those were the days (my friend)
I never talk during music, at least during good music. If one hears bad music, it is one's duty to drown it in conversation.

You Francis. :kiss:

And your wonderful family. :notworthy:

Covers; they always make you go delving. I was in mateland last week and Kylie's Confide In Me came on. Boy did I know the lyrics. :P

Much to my 13-year-old daugther's chagrin. :innocent:

Just remembered ...Tilburg and me! :D :von:

Oh, and making Black the first black, before everyone (including the fashionistas) decided black was the new black whilst we are knew black was the first black and not the new black and just ...black.

Hope that helps.

He served me (and the rest of the front row) some cake in York during the Exxile tour. It was quite surreal. :D

Although I like Eldo's music, there are people who can make me feel embarrassed for liking it (and goth stuff in general).

He's gotten me into forums (before I got into this one, I've always kept a safe distance between forums and me :lol:)
Thanks to him I discovered all sorts of music I would have never found out about without first getting into the Sisters (this goes for some bands that pop up around here sometimes, etc)
Err... Lots more of course, but that's what comes up first

For him? Record buying, and buying tickets to this summers gigs, I guess, and bring fresh, young blood into the fan base (well, I've been only following them since some years, so...)

Wellwellwellywell...
I can put my signature underneath everything that has been mentioned so far, but I feel the need to add my tacky/kitsch bit:

Von has provided me with an idea for my thesis and therefore has rescued me from the void and made sure I could finish my studies in dignity. :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy:

There. Now I feel better... ;D

What have I ever done for him that hasn't been mentioned here before?
Behaved like a proper front row clamper, but without the "Andy!", "Andy?", "Aaaaandyyyyyy........." bit .
:lol: :lol: :lol: 8)
Celebrations done, more to come, hopefully.

Meanwhile: I'm still confused but on a higher level... :-)

Whoops, I didn't mean to fish for compliments. It's just that I'm slightly out of my mind because not only have I finished it but I also got a very encouraging feedback from my professor, that I'd never have dared to expect. So I feel a lot of gratitude to everybody who made it possible. :oops:

The initial hint were Von's comments about the war in Iraq in 2003. And I asked myself whether all those people who applauded and cheered were indeed of the same opinion or not. So my thesis was about music and politics, and I have found out (among other things) that politicisation through music does happen under certain circumstances. :D

Given me cheekbones by "influencing" me to ape his lifestyle.
That and the delusion (during my teenage years) that I was asserting
my originality by copying someone else's image. :roll:

Go figure.


PS

But the records, flashing lights and gigs were pretty damn fine, too!
