He’d definitely be “cancelled” for some of that today.

Yeah, you're not wrong. 80% of that would be career suicide today, and I suppose you could say that that's what happened anyway.

Gotta love him though, for all his madness Our fearless leader! Our fearless leader!

Possibly not his finest hour...

Although he likes the Screaming Blue Messiahs. One of the best gigs I ever went to.

A Sisters version of Bikini Red would be my personal nirvana..

1992, I'd say, after the Tune In - Turn On - Load Out Tour with all those market-induced cancellations,

the Reading Festival, the release of Temple of Love (1992) on 20 April 1992, though not in the US,

and a few cuts before The Sisters of Mercy's so far last officially released song Under The Gun in 1993 ... Neutral ...

well apart from the SSV branching ... while they did have some new songs and a view ...

I'd say late 1990/early 1991.

He says he's going to Las Vegas to shoot a video for next single "Detonation Boulevard". It wasn't a single in the UK bit there are US promo discs listed on discogs for 1990. Also mentions of the Gulf War which was end of 1990 into the first few months of 1991. And he says he's off to Japan next.

So if anyone knows when the Detonation Boulevard video was filmed or when he visited Japan during that period it'd help to pin it down.

The first Sisters gigs of 1991 were the 10th anniversary shows in Leeds, and in the interview he mentions that the band are rehearsing, so that would make it January or early February.

There's also an interview from the same US visit, on KROQ, 25th Jan 1991.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZL7B1_gd-Ks
It's misdated as 25th Feb on youtube (and on the cassette cover), but that's impossible as it's mentioned that Eldritch is doing an instore appearance in Tower Records, Sherman Oaks the following day, and he was gigging in Portugal on the 26th.
This page mentions the Tower records appearance on 26th Jan.

So it's January, sometime before 25th Jan depending on how long he'd been in the US (he says he's only been in the country 6 hours so it has to be earlier than the KROQ interview.)

I just put this period down as "the mad years" - he was certainly off his rocker for a goodly portion of the 90s.

Interesting, presumably Wicked Game, which does fit the UTG vibe. And no TOL with Offra sets it squarely in 1991, guessing Jan as you do

Yes, I've misheard that. They played the Im Nin' Alu video at some point, so before the TOL 1992 release ... and from that point, looking and listening to it more deeply, I'd also say 1991 now ... and given this video compilation, January seems indeed the most plausible ...
