Classic 1985 Pics

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.

These were made around the time as shooting of No Time To Cry in Formel Eins tv show in Munich.

The sixth one was made in the studio (the pic is from the vid). I would be curious to see the seventh one because they sold 7. If anyone of us has bought it he/she could share with us. :wink: 8) ;D

EDIT: oh.. :lol: :lol: I have the precious ones.. so it's not 7 but 8 altogether.

Aha! ... ;D :lol: ... this series of slides is straight away the best I've seen in decades from that time. How do you know they were made in Munich?

The reason why I think it was in Munich is that Formel Eins tv had its headquarters in Munich at that time...and as the video was made there I assume they went somewhere around for the photo shooting. On two of the pics they are standing in an old tram and there is a Tram Museum in Munich. (it may mean nothing but the seller also lives in Munich)

I guess Ben and Chris have now the same age as the musicians then.

And Eldo has now the same age as that old tram in the museum then.

I'm a tram!

Don't they look thrilled with their free trip to the Munich Tram Museum ? You start a band "to meet girls", and this is where you end up. Rock'n'roll ! No wonder they split up a few weeks later.

Any more of that and we'll be round your front door with the quick-setting whitewash and the shaved monkey.
