The Peter Bratach 1985 New York Ritz photos on 7th June

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.

Just to reassert, I did not take these, nor do I know who did. If anyone knows, drop me a PM and I'll update this post.

The 11th picture seems to be from another date. Who knows which?

The photographer has been identified ... his name is Peter Bratach. The info came to light on the Facebook page via Trevor Ristow, who originally circulated them.

I haven't been to the Heartland in years, so this was a nice welcome back! I only knew my photos were posted to Facebook, not here. Thanks to Trevor for tracking me down!

Yes, this was from the 1 June 1985 gig at the Kabuki in San Francisco. Not sure how it got mixed in with my pics, but there you go!

There's a distinct lack of a hat in those two. Von's also got his biker's jacket on.

Those last photos are not from San Francisco Kabuki June 1985. Not sure when they're from though.

I believe this photo is used for the poster given away with the Live Reading '91 7" box set:

Hihi, yes! ... :D :lol: ... very well observed! ... :notworthy: :notworthy: ...

Should be interesting, where the photos in the Reading box were taken ... ... maybe Sweden, as one of them was also used for the OPUS DEI bootleg ... :?:

Surely the same session as the photo on the front of Armageddon Outtakes.
