Hi all you Sisters Fans, a then friend of mine had a Sisters record in the mid 80ties Andrew Eldritch just recorded to keep the band name so that his former band members couldn´t get it. If I remember it right there had been the drawning of a machine gun on the cover. As far as I see this record isn´t listed here. Does anyone know something about it ?

Way back in the mid-80s, I was a punk/metal kid with an increasingly Goth-influenced image. Don't laugh :D

I bought almost everything they did until "This Corrosion", but it's the early 12"s which really did it for me - these were notable for probably being the first records I had ever bought which featured a drum machine (I was mostly into metal and punk until I heard "Alice").

Now, after decades of techno-party raving, virtually everything I buy features at least a TR-808 or a TR-909. How times change... :)

Plenty of classic tunes on those early records, but how they got away with ripping off The Velvets' "Venus In Furs" on "Valentine" is beyond me :)

In the early and mid 80ties when new wave was at its peak The Sisters Of Mercy were amongst the first to use drum machines instead of drums. Blasphemous so they were told.
However their music couldn't surpass those who disparate shouted that these productions should not be released to market. Gladly the masses found it highly enjoyable. The people are never wrong.
The Sisters Of Mercy managed to compose friendly yet haunting music of great class. Folk of all classes danced happily around to underground hits such as 'Alice', 'Temple Of Love' and 'This Corrosion'. Every release was a joy, talked about amongst friends and highly sought after.

Sadly (and wilfully), the image of SOM seems now a dated frozen 'dark' picture, featuring Eldtritch in his typical 'goth' pose (term 'goth' he insists to exclude nowadays)... Hordes of their fans still live out this same frozen frame of 'Floodland' era - ironically, whatever their quailities might seem now, a group once sounding promising and then dropping bollocks altogether, layed their darkest eggs in that famous early period when 'goth' was less obvious in favour of Suicide and The Stooges flavour - 'Some Girls Wander By Mistake' is by far their most sincere body of work. Personally I was never that much of a fan of Sisters' but this one is worth paying sencere respect.
