Plausible Deniability

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.

I think that would be a bit like going round to Stephen Hawkinge's house and wanting to talk about the universe. Surely it's possible to find some common ground that isn't the band?

"Hello, Mr...." [checks clipboard] "...Taylor, is it? Good morning, sir - my name is [insert your name here]...Now, I'm not here to sell you double-glazing, or to ask you to vote for a particular candidate in the upcoming by-elections. No, much more important than that. I am calling on you today to ask you a very simple, but very serious question. You see, I represent [shifty head-swivel to make sure none of the neighbours are earwigging] the Church. No, not that church - I'm talking about the One True Church: the Fundamentalist Unified Church Of Tea-preparation. And the question I must ask you is of utmost import - it is this: to dunk, or not to dunk? Do you have time for [whips packet out from under coat] a Bourbon Cream and a chat?"

I reckon you'd be in with this approach.

One assumes he'd gladly take such a representative inside (presumably after providing an alibi)

Naah, I reckon it would be a couple of mismatched mugs from the Habitat outlet, and milk straight out of the bottle. He'd have to chivvy a couple of cats off the sofa to let you sit down - and I'll lay you a tenner that he's a Dunker.

For a split second I thought you were telling us a new Sisters record was coming out 😂😉

Well, after 14 years it's hard not to realise some FACT! (C)* (TM)*.

Now that’s just cruel.
The most successful tyranny is not the one that uses force to assure uniformity but the one that removes the awareness of other possibilities, that makes it seem inconceivable that other ways are viable, that removes the sense that there is an outside.

Sad to say, but with the departure of Chris, my hopes for any new Sisters material went from slim to none.

Yep, I'd be surprised if they can be bothered to unearth any more of the back catalogue either..

Thinking about the facts - do we know any other bands Ben plays with and grew up listening to, other than The Sisters?

I'm, also, afraid that it very unlikely that we hear any new-new song(s) played live.

TV dinner, anyone?

KMFDM/PIG?


There's also Shot Through The Heart which is not a band per-se nor plays original songs, but he's surelly playing a lot of songs from bands that he grew up listening to whenever he plays there :lol:
