Token random unimportant fact from the interview:

(Ignoring the random stupid fact above, there are actually some moderately interesting questions & answers in this interview, which makes a pleasant change, IMHO)

Best I've read in years, actually We are not worthy!

And, good to know next time Our fearless leader! mumbles,

Quote:
You seem to regard the very old songs more highly than I imagined.

AE: I think there are some good elements to even the worst ones. Some of those early songs we still play in rotation and I try to concentrate on the bits of them that I like and idly sing my way through the bits I like less.

Hmmm.... So the new record will be called Osmium?

Over their 36 years, The Sisters output has been absolutely littered with intertextual references.

AE: Itís absolutely full of it and thatís why it increasingly takes me longer and longer to write a song because the material is actually very, very dense. Itís one of the reasons I donít mind playing the same songs 30 years running because they are so dense. Every time I sing them on stage, I can follow up one particular link in my head and embrace and enjoy where itís leading me.

Good one!

And I'm with the Catalyst on this one: I also think the Sisters are built for festivals. We are not worthy!

Fascinating insight into the current live set up and the very non-punk revelation that Our fearless leader! employs a cleaner!
Great work from Heartland member Mark Andrews in tracking the three of them down and weaving their answers into such an excellent interview. We are not worthy! We are not worthy!

And I think the truth can now finally be told...

SCENE: INT dwelling in undisclosed European location. Curtains half-drawn to reveal apocalyptic scene - half-empty coffee cups with fag ends in them, beer cans litter every available surface, overflowing ashtrays on coffee table and bookshelves, battered acoustic guitar on sofa; also on sofa what appears to be a sleeping body covered by an old candlewick bedspread. Cat asleep on body.

FX: Doorbell

Body on sofa grumbles and stirs.

FX: Doorbell, continuous and insistent

Body rises from sofa, revealing VON. Cat grudgingly jumps onto floor and tiptoes through the detritus heading towards the kitchen. VON picks up a succession of cigarette packets on the coffee table, shaking them; finds one that is not empty, removes cigarette, puts in mouth, and lights.

VON stands - he is wearing baggy, stained, once-white Y-fronts, a single blue sock, and a faded t-shirt proclaiming "Aqua World Tour 1997".

FX: Doorbell

VON coughs, disturbing the depths of 35 years of catarrh. Shuffles towards door.

CAM: Pan to follow VON through door; Steadicam down hallway to front door.

VON opens front door. Standing on doorstep is GLADYS from No. 37. She is carrying a bucket containing marigolds, scrubbing brush, furniture polish, and a roll of bin bags. She is wearing a housecoat under an apron. Her hair is done up in a duster.

GLADYS: Ooh, good morning, Mr. E Ė Iíve been ringiní that doorbell for ages, I thought you must of gone out. Let us in, ducks Ė itís perishiní out Ďere.

VON: Morning, Glad Ė sorry about that, we had a bit of a party last night, Iím afraid we made a bit of a mess.

GLADYS: Oh, you international rock stars with your wild parties. Whatever will I do with you?

GLADYS chucks VON under the chin

GLADYS: Now, you go put some clothes on Ė whatever will the neighbours think, and me married to my Dennis these 63 years come November. Iíll pop the kettle on and make a start.

GLADYS enters and walks down hallway; VON goes upstairs.

CAM: Steadicam follows GLADYS to living room, where she surveys the carnage.

GLADYS: [mutters] Well this is a right old to-do and no mistake. Best get started.

GLADYS pulls out binbag and start emptying ashtrays into to, collecting beer cans, etc. Goes to window and pulls curtains back. On a table under the window is a pile of papers, pizza boxes, empty DVD cases, and various papers. GLADYS puts the DVD cases to one side and collects the rubbish. Picks up note pad, reads.

GLADYS: Whatís this? ďFinal details and tracklist for new albumĒ? Whoís Chris Catalyst when heís at home? ďRobochristĒ? Well, I donít like the sound of that, I donít think our lord and savior would be very flattered. Such nonsense. And no, I donít believe for a second thatís heís slept with all the girls in Berlin Ė Barnsley, maybe, if Mrs. Dawsonís youngest lass is to be believed. [sigh] I donít know, these boys and their foolish fancies.

GLADYS puts notepad into binbag and continues to collect rubbish, dusting and wiping as she goes.

[fade to black]

@EB Laughing
I suspect that there is more than a grain of truth in this, and no doubt Euro-Gladys has also managed to delete all the new tracks the band are "always banging down" with an ill-placed can of Pledge on a computer keyboard.
