This is more of a plug than an update, although I'm sure most of you know that TJ is doing the electronic-rock thing with the Sputniks still.

theyre worth seeing if you get the chance. In the meantime, have a look at http://www.sputnikworld.com and read the history - it's got a little bit on the Sisters, and includes this *fab* photo.

I saw the Sputniks at the Irish Centre in Leeds in 1989, and as they came back out to do an encore someone pushed me and I put out my arm to stop myself falling and accidentally pressed some keys on the keyboard, and a bouncer pushed my head and I banged my nose on the stage and got a nosebleed. Oh happy days!

I certainly was.

It's a small world eh?

(and it does, indeed, smell a bit off).

At least for Sisters fans.

http://www.popmatters.com/music/features/030529-jamestony.shtml - interesting, especially this bit:

Quote:

Originally asked to be the lead singer of SSS, Andrew Eldritch returned the favor to Tony James by inviting him to play bass with the Sisters of Mercy on their Vision Thing album/tour.


now that would have rocked like a b*st*rd!!!

I particularly like the bit in the TJ biog where he mentions AE banning his (TJ's) girlfriend from their dressing room after she laughed at his "very washed out" Marks & Spencers underpants Laughing Laughing Laughing


What is it with men and their relationship with their REALLY old pants? Wierded Out

a really comfy pair of underpants/boxer shorts is a rare and beautiful thing

it becomes like a second skin, and is nearly impossible to throw away, even when washed-out, or covered in holes

it's a bloke thing, I guess...

I agree. I just loath the Christmas thang when you KNOW that some auntie or distant relative, having no idea what to buy you, will opt for the pants option. The sadness of knowing that one of your favourite pairs (usually when you're not looking) will be consigned to the dustbin by your better half (as even Oxfam wouldn't take them) and replaced by something shiney, new and, ahem, 'fashionable' is a very, deep emotional time for us blokes. The end of an ara. The loss of a very good friend.Crying or Very sad

Wow, a conversation about pants. Let's see how long it takes to get moved to the OT section.

Speaking of pants - I recently converted from BHS briefs to the supportive boxer thing (I could never do "baggy" - I like me bits to be snug!), and must say I'm very impressed. Initially I've taken the safe route and gone for the pocket-saving "gap" range, but may branch out into the more adventurous "Calvin Kleins off the market" range.

Interestingly enough (bear with me on this one ...) most UK supermarkets have adopted the continental practice of expanding their range of wares for sell, usually purchased on the 'gray' market. Want clothes? Go the supermarket. Want garden furniture? Go to the supermarket. Want a flat screen 46" TV with an obscure makers' logo? Go the supermarket. 'Pile 'em high, sell 'em cheap!' 'When it's gone! It's gone! etc etc

Pottering through my local Safeway a few years ago, with the entire tribe in tow, we passed a display of CK boxers piled up in a display at the end of one of the aisles, with that picture (six-pack stomach, unfesibly large bulge etc).

Twent feet past, my five year old son, ran back and stayed at the display intently. Ten seconds later, at the top of his voice, he announced 'Look everybody! That's MY Daddy!' We are not worthy!

Sucking in my gut and puffing out my chest, I waltzed back and took him by the hand. Not without noticing a few admiring glances from fellow female shoppers. Very Happy

If only they knew son. If only they knew ... Crying or Very sad

according to www.visions.de tony and mick jones started a new band called "carbon/silicon"

visions.de wrote:
Mick Jones, ehemaliges Mitglied von The Clash, hat zusammen mit Kollege Tony James (Generation X, Sigue Sigue Sputnik) eine neue Band namens Carbon/Silicon gegründet. Libertines-Manager Alan McGee beschreibt die Musik als "The Rolling Stones jamming with a laptop." Für den kommenden Monat sind bereits vier Shows in Großbritannien angesetzt.
