"MEET THE AUTHOR". Paint My Name In Black and Gold" Crowdfunding Events

EVENT ONE: 18.00 - 19.30 (CET) at Bar Des Amis, Tervuren 3080, Belgium. 27 APRIL 2019

We will play the nine-and-a-half instrumental, 4-track home demos that That Guitarist made for a proposed second Sisters album, that were rejected by Andrew Eldritch in Hamburg in the early autumn of 1985. These songs all went on to become early m*****n tracks.

We will also play part or whole of the bootleg of The Sisters first Brussels concert in 1983, which resulted in their 'arrest', as seen in Philippe Carly's legendary photos.

I can share my research on these and other Sisters and Leeds-related topics. I also expect to benefit from hearing what you have to say and learn some things useful for the book.

The cost to attend is 20 in cash on the night. When you know you can come, please sign up via this Doodle: https://doodle.com/poll/wwkf58yidsid9can

The maximum number is 30 people.

All funds raised will go to the book and will be pledged live at the event.

I will be available for the rest of the evening, for those who wish to continue to socialise and chat about The Sisters and Leeds.


EVENT TWO: 13.00-14.00 (Leeds Time) at Northern Guitars, Leeds. 26 MAY 2019

We will play the nine-and-a-half instrumental, 4-track home demos that That Guitarist made for a proposed second Sisters album, that were rejected by Andrew Eldritch in Hamburg in the early autumn of 1985. These songs all went on to become early m*****n tracks.

I also hope to play selections of bootlegs of early Sisters Leeds gigs.

I can share my research on these and other Sisters and Leeds-related topics. I also expect to benefit from hearing what you have to say and learn some things useful for the book.

The cost to attend is 15 cash on the afternoon. When you know you can come, please sign up via this Doodle: https://doodle.com/poll/9uh6d7hyimsknnax

All funds raised will go to the book and will be pledged live at the event.

I will be available for the rest of the afternoon in Northern Guitars so I hope we can continue our discussions there.

The blurb for Wayne's book mentions that it will have special editions with a number of demos. I'm checking if these are the 'rejected' Sisters demos. If so, that could be making these events redundant. Will update, as I find out more ...

Just checked with Wayne. The Sisters demos are not coming out with his (first) book. So all systems go with the Tervuren and Leeds events ...

Definitely no surge ... small numbers. But it will be fun. More coming people to Leeds. Every little bit counts ...

That was a wonderful evening and well worth the travel ... Very Happy ... and so exciting to hear those old demos (I love listening to demos) ... Mr. Green ...
Most of them were without vocals, full of great guitar, percussions, bass parts ... loads of creative themes, more or less elaborated,
many were just lovely ... and, as I was infomed, so they became some of the best known m*****n tracks ... Wink ...

Still, I can think up a variety of reasons, why Andrew didn't want to do lyrics for most of them. All in all, I can imagine he saw these demos
as a good basis for a great record, only not just with him ... with another singer, they might really make something of it ... and so history
took its course ... let's part amicably ... Wink ...

Anyway, it was quite a pleasure to listen to that old stuff, and I wish I could hear it all over again - as is, not in any released version.
Also, there were some surprises in them ... Laughing ... but, I don't want to reveal too much as there's another such event in Leeds later on.
In addition, a bunch of hardcore band aficionados coming together in one room to listen to some old demos and talk ... Laughing ... wonderful ... Mr. Green ...
* greetings to everyone there ... it was great a pleasure to meet you all ... We are not worthy! ... anytime looking forward to seeing you again ... Very Happy ...

And thanks, of course, to Wayne for providing the demos that formed the basis of this event... Very Happy ...
Some developed into songs much beloved by the m*****n's fanbase ... and that's how it should be.

Thanks for the enthusiastic review, makes me look forward to the gathering in Leeds.

Also makes me want to crank up the volume on the GOM and First Chapter albums.
