QB suggested making this a sticky (for now).

I wrote to Andreas to see if he would be willing to have a Heartland interview (much as our beloved administrator did with Gary Marx). He did not decline. So, let me open a thread to see what you would like to have asked. I have a bunch of questions already off the top of my head, but feel free to add others here or send me a PM. After a few days or so, I can pass on the relevant ones, and if we are lucky, he can givbe us some insight.

So far, Gary may have to share the title of "nice man" with another ex-Sister.

how did he come to join the sisters?

how did he feel about joining a legendary band like the sisters, and stepping into the shoes of revered guitarists (amongst the sisters fanbase) such as mr marx and mr hussey?

is eldritch actually as good a guitarist (sat down anyway) as people seem to think?

how much input did mr brechino have into the writing, recording & production of the VT album? (i never really thought tim's much-touted "M62 touch" was evident on any of the material from that time)

how much sisters stuff after VT was he involved in? were there any other songs written post-VT that we've never heard of?

how did he get into writing soundtracks for tv adverts?

is he ever tempted to drop a cheeky sisters VT riff into one of the tunes? Mr. Green

Ones which I was considering are similar to QB's (although I had not thought of his last suggestion Laughing ).

Among the Sisters-related questions: how did he first meet AE?; how accrimonious was leaving the band (especially if Eldritch supposedly expected Bruhn to play in the 1996 gigs after the layoff)?; did he interact with the band during the last Hamburg gigs or just sit at the bar where he was spotted?; had he seen them band during the previous incarnation?; does he keep in contact with anyone from the band?; was Vision Thing solely the work of him and Andrew (in other words, did Tim and Tony play anything on the actual release)? did he rework any potential Sisters music for a post-VT release into his solo work?

Non-Sisters stuff: what happened to the Vanish album (please, no puns)?; why did he (as many German singers) not have any songs in German?; how would he compare working in band to solo work to production for other artists?

Anything else which might be of interest? Send me a PM if you prefer to forward questions that way.

Are there songs wriiten and demo-ed for VT that didn't make it onto the lp?

Are any demos of VT songs drastically different to the album versions?

What the hell where you guys doing in PUK for 9 (NINE) months. Specifically, what where you, Andreas, doing during the weeks and weeks of vocal takes?

What was it like working with John Perry (ex-The Only Ones) during the recording of Vision Thing and are any of his guitar parts on the album?

What is the best (most pleasant/funniest) and the worst thing he can remember from the time he was in the Sisters.

My heart skipped a beat when I read through this topic. So close yet so damn far....


I only have one question. Is Andrew really as bad as he comes off in terms of temperament, or is there somewhere in there a nice guy?

It may be a sticky subject, but I can ask.

Seriously, what underpants story do you mean? Question

What Sisters song did he most enjoy playing?

Does he ever listen to The Sisters now?

How early did he begin to have doubts about being a member of The Sisters?

Just how tall is Eldo really? Without those boots? And the wig?

It was something along the lines of Tony James and a female acquaintance laughing at Eldritch's underpants; they were old, once-white but washed to greyness, Y-fronts of the type not entirely fitting our man's "intellectual love god" status.

Reference here but I can't find the original story now.

*Edit: Found it.

Does he like the Sisterhood? Wink
Nah, seriously, what does he think of Ghost Dance, The Mish and earlier Sisters things?

Will he try to convince Von to work on more Sisters material?
Is Von still alive?
What's his (Andreas') HL username? Smile

I talked to Andreas and mentioned that midweek or so I will consolidate the questions (the marmite one probably included) and forward them to him. Try to post any questions by Wednesday. He then will reply to what he can. He seems to be a class act.

It does not appear that he can offer any missing pieces to our Sisters collections. That does not damper my feelings, though.

Does he regret wearing sunglasses which were so dark that he could never see where the camera was?

It wasn't me...

Methinks I need to talk to Andrew about his smalls. Wink That was a very enjoyable article. And those photos above are yummy. I love him with the long dark hair. So gorgeous.

That's a damn good question--what was it like recording a Sisters album (long and painful?)

Would he work with Eldo again?

Knowing Eldo, what's his opinion of the current non-state of The Sisters?

Surprised Hell no!

One of my questions is about size, but I don't think Mr. Bruhn would appreciate me asking that. Wink Will he comment on that photo you sent me Martin? You remember the one. Was that a sock or was he just happy to see me. Kiss
