Just what is the connection to the Impossible Dreamers?!? Never have managed to get to the bottom of that one? Confused

Probably no connection at all. Probably a coincidence - two people thought of the same name and liked it.

Hhm, but why would The Sisters of Mercy start releasing with catalogue# MR07,
if not MR01-MR06 had been used for releases by other bands ?

They didn't use consecutive numbers after MR7 though, jumped to MR13 then went up with odd numbers

Does anyone know if the versions of songs on La Costa Rasa's Merciful Release 'Autopilot' CD are the same as on their original 'Last Of The Baby Boomers' LP of 2 years earlier? I have the CD, but never heard the LP. Interestingly Claire Shearsby, Andy's ex, is noted as producer of both.

Mega City Four used this as a way to make it look as though they were a signed band with their debut single. Although it was self financed and released, they gave it a catalogue number 009 or something to make it seem as though the label putting it out was already established.

Probably not of much appeal to anyone on here who's favourite elements of The Sisters are Dr Avalanche and Andy's baritone. I love them though.

Factory used to give everything a number, gigs, posters, even the cat (true!) so maybe one to six were similar to that. I ahem appropriated the Factory scheme of things for the Abridged. The latest issue is 0 - 51 but there haven't been 51 issues...

OK, I see. So The Impossible Dreamers and their Merciful Releases have made their way into the SistersWiki only because ... they exist ... Laughing ...

Quite likely. Another possibility is that the MR catalogue index also functioned in those early days as SKUs for gig posters, press photo packs, press releases, and other non-musical-releases, as per Factory Record's catalogue.

... Laughing ... a lovely example ...

In a way, it is only logical - every commercial enterprise and professional person would consecutively number all of their projects ...
from that view and with regard to The Sisters, single cover print and t-shirt production might have been MR004 and MR005 ... Smile ...

That makes sense, missing numbers of format MR00x are other products and not records or non released records.

I think I can answer this now.

This is MR2 (well, MRcass2 - see sticker on cassette box near bottom of page):
https://sisterswiki.org/Gary_Marx_Demo_Tape

There's also an earlier demo tape that doesn't have the live tracks on side B (because it was made before the live tracks had been recorded). Nobody's ever seen one, but the earlier tape would presumably be MR1 (or MRcass1).

Oh yes ... We are not worthy! We are not worthy! ... I think that is the obvious truth we (or me at least) didn't see for such a long time ... Smile ...

A nice collection of promo postcards, concert posters and press reviews (partly in German) for those who might like it ...
