Rather provoking.

I dare say The Sisters (not Andrew alone) can't give us something at the moment. And it's not because of the lack of material.

Label? MR? No way, because no world-wide distribution. (Especially US, that's why the EastWest thing came down, IMHO.) For the rest, please refer to GPS 05.

Internet? Free releases? Not with Adam, meaning the songs Mr. Whammy (co-)wrote. But then, the only new track available for download is from a band member who's currently back on the bench.

I don't think it's lazyness... I believe upon signing a deal, we would have that new CD within six to eight months. The thing is, no deal, no need to hurry.

At least they tour the lands quite frequently.

We do like a very odd band.

Speaking of covers... I like to listen to the original versions of these songs immediately followed by their respective Sisters' versions. It always strikes me just how pale and somehow frail the originals seem compared to the covers. Like a nice cute well-maintained domestic cat with a real huge strong wild scary beautiful tiger (do accept my apologies Mugabe and Richey if the order of adjectives is incorrect). Hope some of you share my view, or am I just sick in the head? Confused Laughing
Hello Jazz, by the way. Do you like the smell of cinnamon-sprinkled coffee with hard-coal smoke on a frosty morning, by any chance? Smile

Listening to Suicide's "Ghost Rider", pale and frail are not words that immediately spring to mind. Same thing with the original "Sister Ray" and "1969". I see your point, but in many cases I think the comparison between a watchmaker's hammer and a pile-driver would be more suitable than your feline analogy. The pure chugga-chugga-ness of drum machines and overdriven guitars is not necessarily more powerful than Dolly Parton.

With the exception of "Comfortably Numb", which sounds almost identical to the original. If Dave Gilmour had played a wrong note in the solo then so would Adam (Is it Adam who does the solo?)

Heard the original on the radio the other day & was amazed how weedy it sounded (your memory does play tricks I suppose). The ( cough) guitar solo may be the same but the overall effect is a lot different - as long as it's without the previously mentioned shrieky backing singers.

He's currently touring the US with The Alarm. I was less than two feet from him the entire gig I was at and he was ok. Until I told him he was really great on AuRa.

*Oh God* was all he said before returning his attention to his bass. It never occurred to me NOT to say something to him, since I think he's fabulous.

Andrew Eldritch wanted so much to be left alone that he finally managed that I don't care anymore. He's finally only a picture on the wall. The Sisters are finally a dead band.
I don't care if he talks to us or not, not to mention the gigs and especially the *album*...
I'm beyond Andrew Eldritch.
I'm free!

Happy, Andrew? I wouldn't be. Our fearless leader!

He mentioned in an interview from the Vision Thing era something to the effect of "Our fans tend to be very intelligent in general" then told the interviewer that we would understand if they got really popular and started playing bigger venues, etc. I think he has faith in us and just likes to tease. I think he cares, but won't do things he doesn't was to do just for us. I could see him getting in a weird mid-life funk thing, also. Maybe it's like, "Hmm, well, I did the rockstar thing for a while...that was cool...but I want more now and I'll write and record when I get the urge, if ever." He is only man...I think.

I think he assumes we are intelligent enough not to let our lives revolve around him and doesn't let his revolve around us.


This is all IMHO, of course, though I might be repeating others unknowingly.

Does anyone know how he's wearing his hair these days?

I was in Bath yesterday doing the tour of the Roman baths (of course) and there was this guy in my tour group thing that i wish i would've asked if he was AE...there was just something about him. But he's right, no one recognizes him w/no sunglasses, so I could well be wrong.


Anyway, the guy I saw had longish hair (between ears and neck) in a little ponytail and was its natural color (brownish gray)...is AE still bald?



Seriously doubt it was him, but please help if you know because I'm feeling really regretful about not making sure.

How tall is he? Taller than about 5 foot 6?

about 0.5 inches per month, I think is the usually quoted figure, so 6 inches per year.

He claimed 5'9" in an interview, I think, but maybe that's in his cuban heels. It wasn't me...
