The latest post on my TSOM blog - https://sistersfan.blogspot.co.uk/2017/10/the-first-demo-tape-1981.html - looks in detail at the first demo tape, and in particular the source of the tracks on the B Side, the "live" tracks.

The results mean that a further slight change may be needed to the Wiki gigography, @Being645, as the likely sequence is as follows :

1. 16.2.81 York Uni (supporting Thompson Twins)
- (10.3.81 Leeds Warehouse - fake date)
2. 19.3.81 Leeds F Club @ Brannigans (supporting Altered Images)
3. 22.3.81 Leeds F Club @ Tiffany's (twelve band charity extravaganza)
- (4.4.81 York Uni - fake date)
- (4.5.81 Leeds, St John's Terrace - recorded live rehearsal?)
4. 7.5.81 York Uni (supporting Reluctant Stereotypes)
5. 13.6.81 Leeds Uni (with Expelaires and Ping Peg Slax)

Unless of course, anyone has other information!

Thank you very much for the information. As usual, that is a very nice and interesting entry ... We are not worthy! We are not worthy! We are not worthy! ...

I will adjust the info in the SistersWiki step by step asap ... for The Sisters of Mercy, for YOU, for myself and for EVERYONE.

Question Question Question ... are you referring to some soundcheck that took or took not place decades ago? If so, feel free to PM me about that issue.

Just caught up on both the recent posts. This one was particularly good, and a timely read for me as this 'gig' was next in my listen to pile of old CD-Rs. Everything you said about the St John's gig being a taped rehearsal seems right to me. Another great detective job ... Thanks!
