Alternate Walk Away video...

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.

What's 'alternate' about that, it's the only one I've seen and it's in the weeding section?

Did Eldritch borrow Choque's hat for that video, or is his hair really that s**t? :|

If you look really closely in the Dry Ice you'll spot Reg Varney a cult figure for our :von: .

Unfortunetly due to legal disputes and :von: renaging to cover the 'On the Buses' theme tune, intended for release on a 12" single covering other comedy classics in a Sisters stylee, Reg sued and had the original video removed from the masses.




Until Now

























Or Not

Fantastic : Not seen that video for over ten years now. The simplisity of both that song and the video are amazing. The song itself sounds like it was written in an afternoon and the video looks like it cost under £30 to make!!

It was round this time that Sisters had the music press and most of the impressionable and open minded youths attention. No £100,000 pound location shoots ,no mindless story line driven videos where popstars used to fool themselves their next vocation in life would be 'movie star'! .
This is what you got at Sisters shows in '84 / 85. Minimalistic mood lights and smoke - it certainly wasn't like going to see Kiss or Motley Crue!! You paid your £4.50 and yo got Eldritch at his best - swaying , foot on the monitors virtually mouldijg himself to the mike stand - it was mesmerising. But now, everyone is running about, pyros going off ranting from a pre-arranged script.

No Time to Cry was the FALAA video of that period. Watch that video and you caught a glimpse of the Sisters live show - brillient. But when Morrison joined and some onehired some guy to write a screen play for the videos - I switched the tv off then.

f**k me! Was on YouTube, and watched the German tv version of NTTC and Craig's wearing that spangly blue shirt he gave me - the one featured in the photo section of this site.( If I'm not very much mistaken) ! Maybe I need a second opinion, cos the version I saw was a bit dodgy..Gabba Gabba hey!! :D :?:

It's definitely different from the one I remember, which seemed to be all Wayne's hair and arms, and Von looking scarily like Cliff Richard.

I think Von went through his Michael Jackson phase before Michael Jackson did!

Probably my oops. I'm almost certain I've seen a different version of it, but I could be having an elderly moment. I have a VCD collection of the 84/85 vids knocking around somewhere, and I'm sure that the Walk Away vid on it is more similar in style to the NTTC vid.

It fills me with an overwhelming deisire for mind expanding drugs.
All those blue light tunnels...

By the end of wake I didn't even need the drugs. I was so drowsy by the time the lights came on for the encore I was in a different world anyway.
