Return of the YCBTO Appreciation Society

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.

An outstanding work of musical genius

Long overdue and with the influx of new bods from the tour, now seemed appropriate.

My feelings are well kent but for those of you too shy to admit your admiration and love of it, now's your chance.

Naysayers shall be treated with the scorn they deserve including my friend (furore scribendi) who's still in Baltimore. :lol:

Would it be wrong if someone just, ahem, changed the wording? Nah, you would just complain to Mark. We will crack him yet!

Ah must admit I really love it, much more so than the A-side More. Eldritch at his funniest.With the possible exception of Floorshow and I was Wrong. Though it could be just my sense of humour. How about a poll about the funniest Sisters song? Sorry if there's been one. Am new!

My best ever Slimelight memory was YCBTO coming on at nearly seven in the morning, danced and don't recall getting many funny looks!!!

Though at that time I was probably a little tired and emotional :P

I think the correct wording should be "An outstanding work of comedy genius".
Any more of that and we'll be round your front door with the quick-setting whitewash and the shaved monkey.

Oh, I agree with you. (Well, maybe not top5 but I like it.) I meant it entirely respectfully. It's meant to be funny.

As an aside, does anybody know how to play this wonderful song on the guitar? The wife has decided she wants me to record a version of it, which could be interesting, problem is I don't know how to play it, and, being musically inept I have very little chance of actually figuring it out.
Surely it can't be that tricky.
Any musos out there?

the joyous sound of eldritch fully embracing the bastard offspring of crap era cult and crap era crazyhead, and probably crap era (was there any other) zodiac mindwarp.
