The Elvis Presleys From Hell

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.

Elvis Presleys From Hell - The Warehouse, Leeds - 29.08.2005

Private one-off gig by the Elvis Presleys From Hell to celebrate the birthday of Leeds gig/event promoter Dave Hall.

everyone who was anyone back in the day was there, as were several people who really were not anyone, and should have known better. members of the sisters, mish, march violets, salvation, the lorries, rose of avalanche (!), to name but a small selection etc etc etc

the pics were taken on my camera phone, not bestest quality i'm afraid. have been awaiting the nod to "publish" these photos (it was a private party after all) but several people concerned have now said they think it would be ok, so here you are!

adam and chris playing away from home as it were ;)

not a bad way to spend a bank holiday monday. the highlights of the evening were the band performing vision thing, much to von's amusement :lol: :D and mick brown's, erm, shall we say unique approach to DJing :lol: :notworthy:

80s goth wedding reception stylee? hell yeah...

:von: :notworthy:

clicky for a google cached version of a page that gives more info on the orignal EPfH lineup...

Blimey!
[jealous] I would have loved to have seen that! [/jealous]

How is Mick Brown these days? l always wondered why he retired from the "scene". He is a very good drummer (even Von has admitted this!)

mick looked very well indeed, and was having a great time spinning classic tunes from yesteryear along with claire and choque. it was all very 1983!! 8)

i gather he was originally asked to do the gig but declined - something about it being 13 years and him being out of practise.

Funny to think of Adam, Chris & Von (?) hanging out. Is there no tension or issue in relation to the fact that Adam (allegedly) stopped the Sisters recording career...?
