Jesus Loves The Sisters

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.

Hope someone can help me out: I'm looking for pictures of Eldritch and/or any other band members wearing a "Jesus Loves The Sisters" T-shirt. My google-fu is failing me.

I recall a Judas shirt once upon a time in the 90's.

That was Tony James‘ home-made tee announcing his departure from the band, wasn’t it?

Something like “Judas leaves the Sisters”.

Afaik, only Greek bootleggers sell "Jesus Loves The Sisters" shirts (and mostly within high-price ultra rare box sets) ... :lol: ...

So the chance to see a band member wearing one, seems rather low ... :wink: ...

Reptile House does them every now and again. Perhaps if they see interest here they may reprint again.

Mine usually gets an outing at Mish gigs.

Yep, pretty sure I have one from a few years ago in the back of my wardrobe.

Seem to recall seeing Eldritch in one from circa 1984...? And he had a leather with it on, didn’t he?

Hhm, I think that was the one with the large Merciful Release Logo, which was often used in the press ...
Anyway, I've never seen a Jesus Loves The Sisters shirt in the old order forms .... I wonder, though, whether
ever anybody bought one of those "Subliminal Message" design shirts ... :lol: ...

The 'none more black' Utterly B*st*rd Groovy shirts were about as subliminal as it got in Pudsey :lol:

I bought my Jesus Loves The Sisters shirt from the official online Sisters store a few years back. There are definitely legit versions out there. Has "Reptile House" on the back. I think I recall they were selling them at Sonisphere 2014 too. Pretty sure they were. It's probably my favourite Sisters shirt (toss up between that and Gegen Nazis)... now that I've long since lost my f**k Me And Marry Me Young shirt that I bought at an NEC show back in 92. Which is probably for the best, as it wouldn't wear so well now on a 48 year old hairy old man!

I have one and is one of my beloved ones as it always makes an amusing atmosphere whenever i wear it :)
And it's official bought either online or in Munich Tonhalle concert back in 2014 or 2015

Oh yes, that would make a lovely bundle ... :D :D :D ...
And anyway sooner or later, there's gonna be such a set on offer (or say a ltd. 33 copies box set edition from Greece) ... :bat: :twisted: :bat:

Still, I hope The Sisters are faster than their bootleggers in this case ... :innocent: ...
