from DOMINION LIST:

MILAN

Just got back home from the gig. Overall enjoyable experience.

Ulterior: I could stand their music but not their Axel Rose lookalike
singer.

Songs played (not exact order)

Crash and burn
Ribbons
Alice
Floorshow (not a brilliant execution)
Train/Detonation Blvd
Ananconda
Flood I and II
Dominion
Marian
First and last and always
This Corrosion
Something Fast
Vision thing
Arms (or whatever it is called)
Summer (did they change the arrangement since 2006?)
Susanne
Lucretia
Snubnose (or whatever it is called)
Temple of love

I hope I'm not forgetting anything. Oddly the sound was not as good as
in 2006, but this time I could actually hear Andrew's voice, so the show
was much better overall. Relatively small crowd, they were in the same
venue as last time they came to Milan, but this time they played on a
secundary stage they set on one side of the place, and half of the space
was unused. I'd say there might have been a thousand people attending.

Smoke, lights, Andrew looks like Fester Addams. The setup of his
microphone is odd: he keeps it very close to his mouth for the soft
parts and then puts it at arms lenght to scream in it. Usually a singer
only alter this distance by ten centimeters or so. This makes me think
he's really murmuring those soft parts, and the sound guy must be some
kind of genius to capture them.

Bought T-Shirt. Had a good time. Huzza for the Sisters.

PostPost #15  Posted: Wed Mar 11, 2009 10:40 am    Post subject: Bologna 10.03.2009 - Estragon - review Reply with quote Back to top

Hi there,

Lawrence, french man, lost in Italy for three years... oups only 2 years and half now.
Yesterday was my first Sisters of mercy's show... in Bologna - Estragon.

First of all, i arrived around 21h00, and what a real surprise to be in the 50 first people... no crowd... and all along the hour following, people was arriving slowly... the first part, the band "Ulterior" has started his set in front of... 150 - 200 persons only!!! I think it was quite disapointed for them... and the audience was quite cold.

Then, the main set with the "Sisters", started at 22h30, with a really small audience, not more than 700-800 people (Estragon capacity is 2000), but for me, it was great (i was at the first rank just in front of the guitarist), less than 2 meters...
The setlist (not in the exact order after the first 10... sorry)

1- Crash and burn
2- Ribbons
3- Detonation boulevard
4- Alice
5- Floorshow
6- Anaconda
7- Flood I
8- Marian
9- Suzanne
10- Arms
11- This corrosion
13- Flood II
14- Dominion/Mother Russia
15- First and last and always
first break
16- Something fast
17- Vision thing
second break
18- Lucretia my reflection
19- Top night out (amazing guitars set without Eldritch)
20- Temple of love

Impressions... i'm listenning Sisters since 1985 (even if it's my first show), and i've listenned some poor show after 1993... but i was really surprised and pleased by this show. Eldritch, even if he has no longer his great, hard, dark voice of 1980's years, was really good.
Great show in a great place, small audience which is great for fans (!!!)... even if the audience was not the best i've seen... :-(((

Wow - just 350 people? Does it even make sense financially to play to such a small crowd? Compare that to Paris or the other sold out gigs around Europe. And I always thought the Italians were big into industrial rock?

I suppose that's another drawback to not actually selling music - you don't have sales figures broken down by country with which to plan tour routes.

Still, if they played to a crowd that small, I'd guess it was an interesting night.

[Edit] Okay, so it wasn't 350 people - still 750 or 800 is a tiny crowd.

I guess that's the promoter's problem, I don't think the Sisters get more or less depending on how many people show up.

The conclusion should be that by the next tour, it will be easier for the Sisters to -get offers- in Germany, France, Norway, Finland, Poland etc. - and more difficult to get offers in Italy (or the US, sadly).

Then you could say it wasn't that smart to play Bologna, relatively close to Milan, but I guess they didn't have time for more.

Never had the impression that the Sisters are especially popular in Italy.

They should have played Lyon instead, imho.

the politics of no posters anywhere still continue? i didn't see any single poster or flyer so far. it was a little bit disappointed because it is one of that nice feelings you've got when you arrived in some strange city like amsterdam or something and you see sisters poster on the wall Razz "something gonna be happen" you think.
i saw few bands i didn't know that they will play in my hometown just from poster information. i didn't read too much newspappers or listen too much radio so i didn't know about few nice gigs.
looks that in andrew vision, there is no posters in mechanized europe. sad Sad

The irony is that the sisters owe their current touring viability almost totally to the Internet (this site, youtube, their own site etc) and yet they don't really engage with it as a promotional tool.

It's so willful, it's actually fascinating.

yes indeed, i didn't see any advertisement, posters anouncing the show... and i was aware of the show only because i follow the band and know some fans... as we say in french it was "bouche à oreille" (mouth to ear)...
Moreover, i think the goth movement has falling down since the 80's... less and less... the audience was quite aged, the old fans in fact!!!
I saw Bauhaus in Paris in 2006 (sold out), and it was the same, the audience was aged.
Who cares about these old bands now??? The old fans for the majority...

I know they existed in the US - someone from Portland was selling one for the Seattle show on eBay - but there was nothing visible here other than the one inside the venue. Inasmuch as it's a heavily death-metal joint these days, I seriously doubt that most of the regulars gave a flying f**k.

On the other hand, while the show might not technically have been sold out (the maximum capacity is supposed to be around 800, but only because of the bar, which is a separate room), there was no mosh pit because there was no room for one.

I haven't yet determined what all this means...but I'm pondering it Wink

This make me very upset by the way. Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad
Then bologna, the security ask me 10/15 time to stop filming, i was in front but hey, if they want me to stop, the best thing to do was to take the camera or get me out of it, innit Laughing Laughing
