Sorry, I know I'm gonna upset a few of you now, but I must've been at a different gig. I stood right next to the sound engineer's station, and from there the sound was terrible.

I tried moving around - admittedly, only at the back - but anywhere I stood there was no improvement. I could hear the Dok loud and clear, but the vocals were largely inaudible, and the rest was just a wall of unintelligible sound. When I could hear something more specific - like the piano in More - it was TOO loud in the mix.

Very disappointed.

Well it's nice of you to include a link to your (obviously superior) band in there, eh?

Mr. Green Just joshing you, you're entitled to your opinion.

Yep, I thought I might get a bit of a slagging for that bit of shameless promotion! Laughing

But honestly, I only put it in there as a link to the blog I'd already written about Sunday night.

Truth is, my wife and I have been long time fans of The Sisters, but neither of us have ever had the opportunity to see them live, and these tickets were my 50th Birthday gift to her. There's a fair amount of comments on here and elsewhere comparing this gig to other gigs, and maybe this one was better than others, but we've got nothing else but the CDs to compare it against.

It just seemed to me that the sound engineer sacrificed clarity for punch.

Yep, but we like punch Smile

This sound engineer is a master at his work compared to ones we've had in the past.

If you watch some of the YouTube videos from Dublin & London you can see that Von is actually singing (ok sometimes he yelps) rather than the mumbling of days gone by. This is a very good thing.

All I know is that I've seen some very loud bands in similar sized venues (Deep Purple at Brixton Academy, for instance) where I've been able to hear everything as clear as day.

And in theory, it should be a lot easier to get a great sound using a drum machine than with acoustic drums.

But Ian Paice is a very loud singer.

Von is not, hence the problem.

Anyway, if one song could/should be dropped occasionally, I'll vote for Flood II. It really gets old after 100+ times!


Lol I totally disagree, I could hear them play Flood II a 1000+ times and it would still be one of my favourites, plus it gives a convenient opportunity to cool down if it is between some of the more energetic songs Laughing

I missed the inclusion of (We are the same) Suzanne, if they want to drop one of the older unreleased songs from the set, I would prefer it to be Summer.

Arms is definitely growing on me, but my Roundhouse gig highlight was the guilty pleasure of singing along to This Corrosion, it was really rocking Very Happy
& I'm so pleased someone caught some decent footage of it

I know you mean that Ian Gillan is a loud singer.

I know how hard it is for a vocalist like Mr Eldritch to project - I had to sing Temple Of Love as the first dance at a wedding once, and it was pretty tough to be heard.

All the same, drop the Dok's kick drum down a bit, compress the vocal...job done.

Me: "Possession!!!"
Eldritch: "Thank you for your request. That's really gonna work..."

I love the sound balance the way it is, Eldritch rumbling and howling in the middle of rather than on top of the instrumental maelstrom.

I have been to more SOM gigs than some of you and less than others. But in terms of raw sound this is simply the best I have heard them in years. This was better than the Lemmington Spa gig . Plus I had friendís seating in upstairs who said the same things and these were people who vowed never to see them again after the last disaster in London.

Nice to see them on such great form. Plus I took my daughter to her first SOM gig. Great night out.

Wonderful stuff! Great venue (one of the best I ever visited!), fantastic company, band on fire & soundwise no less than sensational!


Thanx to everybody for the good vibes before, during & after the gig We are not worthy! Very Happy We are not worthy!

Bitterly disappointed that they didn't end with Top night Out... I was getting used to it as a tradition Sad

Pretty surethey haven't played it at all this year,and it was never the last song anyway. It seems to have been replaced with the surf guitar of Pipeline.

Anyway,on to the important stuff,new merch! The year started badly in Leeds for the avid shirt collector,on the first night we had a rubbish version of the Alice shirt,with no backprint,the second night added a less than impressive Vision Thing shirt,again with no backprint. Glasgow saw the welcome return of some old Reptile House classics,f**k Me/Gift/Hot Metal all with proper Reptile House backprints,but the band outdid themselves in London with a new Hoody,a new version of the old Some Girls shirt,and a 81-11 Reptile House shirt. And patches!
For me though,the main surprise was the reintroduction of the "old" Head and Star logo,if memory serves,that hasn't appeared on a new design since Utterly Bastard Groovy back in the 90's.

New Hoody,embossed print like the Utterly shirt had.






Reptile House,





Overbombing.





Patches (as a pack of three )

Oo I didn't know they'd had a Vision Thing shirt on sale at the second Leeds gig, I'd love to see it!

Back home a bit later than planned due to fog preventing my to fly back home yesterday afternoon. Luckily, London's not the city to get bored with easily Very Happy Tired I am though after an amazing weekend like this one!

The London gig, I think, might well be my most favourite Sisters gig to date. Perfect venue, perfect atmosphere, great crowd, fantastic people to meet up with before and after and during, I could go on. I guess saying I can still feel it all through my body says more than enough.

Thanks everyone in general and you specifically!

Now, Groningen seems ever more tempting after this Mr. Green

Thanks for all the reviews & videos.
It does seem that it was a Top Nite Out, I wish I was there.

I already noticed that on the photos yesterday. Ecstatic! So glad that a kind heart (aka sisters pics Very Happy ) is willing to secure me pins in Zurich We are not worthy!

Now all I am still left to dream of is a classic girlie shirt...
