Know the whereabouts of any ex-Sisters members or hangers-on? Got any amusing anecdotes about members of the band, past or present? Post 'em here...

You weren't at the New Roscoe gig about a year and a half/2 years ago were you?

I was there.

My brother's band is Liquid Head who were supporting them.

My brother (the lead singer) got talking to Martin Degfield(?) about the "old days" and he replied that he can't remember any of it coz he was too out of his head on various drug-like substances :lol:

Degville on drugs, never?

Managed to catch Carbon/Silicon gig at the Rock Cafe in Stourbridge last week.... I was very impressed. Tony James, whose career for me has been one of alternating highs and lows, really proved himself to be an excellent musician, playing six string guitar alongside Mick Jones admirably, the mutual admiration of each simply oozing from the stage. I wasn't sure about the pairing initially, but for an out and out rock band (with a few sampled bits and bobs) they were great, and the mainly Clash based audience seemed to agree.
For quite a new project (albeit with some shall we say seasoned vets) the gig had the feel of a band who have played for some years, with most of the songs lasting more than 8 mins or so, and turning into improvised jams.
I guess I was most impressed with Tony James.... he looks a bit different now(aue naturalle) , and this, coupled with his guitar playing, sort of helped me get the joke a bit in relation to previous ventures. I would go so far to say that of all the bands he's been in, he seems most at ease with this one.
Welcome back to the high's Tony

new interview from the anti-bass: clicky
"nowadays everybody talks like they got something to say
but nothing comes out when they move their lips
-just a bunch of gibberish-
and everybody acts like they forgot about GARY MARX"

The Sputnik World website has been revamped since the original post was made.
Tony does mention meeting Eldritch after a gig at the Embassy Club.
Not sure if Eldritch did anything more than talk to Tony at the time, but drummer Ray Mayhew recalls him visiting 3 Pindock Mews.
