The only song by these that I've heard (I think) is during Lost Boys ("Thou shalt not kiiiiiiillllllll!!!"), and it kicks arse in the context of the film. Is their other stuff in the same vein?

That's not by the SOM Name escapes me.


First Last and Always is in my top 10 albums of all time. I was well into them around the late 80's. Adrenachrome was my fav track to dance to. Then Alice next. There are some great sister bootleg remixes about...check for dirty funker who seems to put them out.

Also remeber getting a legitimate release from Italy of Ghostrider live and getting it played down the clubs we used to go to. All a bit hazy or should I say 'Misty' back then.

They did a wonderful version of Emma (the Hot Chocolate number) on a Peel session once...worth picking up if it became available.

cheers

Parenthetically, I've always been a fan of Vision Thing, although a lot of Sisters fans hate the chundering US rock-oriented direction. Vision Thing (the song) ended up on the Showgirls soundtrack, for example. Nice one, Eldritch.

Ahhh, happy memories of shooting my ex-girlf (through the medium of dance, you understand) in The Zone in Nottingham whilst Detonation Boulevard grooved the goths.

Bang bang.

Vision Thing was awful cock rock nonsense. I think Tony james has admitted to the fact as well.

Ribbons had some class I will admit. You could tell with Floodlands the party was over and new blood was needed....The Neph filled that quite nicely.

Club wise we used to take in our 12inch's and singles for the first hour of the indie/alternative night at the local nightclub. Laibach,KMFDM.Red Lorry YL, Killing Joke and even Frank Sidebottom Timperly Sunset used to get played....

I dug out my vinyl copy of Floodland last year and gave it a whirl...sounded kind of adolescent and dated to my ears. I just couldn't get excited about it, though I loved it at the time.

I'm kinda like Cartman with "Come Sail Away" ... a few bars of Dominion and feel compelled to run through the whole Dominion/Mother Russia sequence to myself in my head

Hey, I liked it. But then I like awful cock rock. I like all the Steinman/Sisters stuff as well. A whole night of twangy goth guitars and cheap drum machines is enough to make me do a Full Metal Jacket impression in the toilet. I say this as someone who has been to several Whitby Goth weekends and lived to talk about it.

The recent tour(with new songs),these re-issues and Robin Hood trailers using Alice can only serve to prompt AE into realising that the Sisters do have a viable future.There is even talk of new recording contracts.But then again it could just be the raping of back catalogue-see the recent release of the Neph`s "Genesis and Revelations" 2cd and 1 dvd set with umpteen versions of Power

Just because I'm bored and the tracklisting of that goth compilation has set my mind skipping through the daisies, I met Nik Fiend at Rock City once. He's about this big. I met Eldritch once too, years ago, at the Wembley gig when he was going through his Floodland phase of wearing all white. He was a bit sozzled and started going on about the ring he wore and how it commemorated the one time. Or something, I was a bit merry too. I forget.

Wasn't there / isn't there some long drawn out battle with the record company - there was an album a few years ago - that they said not to bother buying - just trying to get out of a contract.

But tempted to revisit these at that price

Yeah, the SSV album. It's crap, in the same way thet Lou Reed's Metal Machine Music was contractually liberating crap.

I saw an ad for these in Mojo mag. i didn't realise that this version FALAA is the original album mixes rather than those that were put on the original CD. I really must get that one.

As for the record company stuff. Von was in dispute with East/West for a very long time but that was resolved a few years ago so he is free to release new material but just doesn't seem inclined to do so.

He's pretty arrogant - cancelling gigs, warping old songs into horrific pap live and refusing to release a new album until someone pays him enough moolah.

Floodland is more of a mixed bag IMHO ...

Flood I seems to have noticeably more of a soundfield/breadth to it, but 1959 still had (to my ear) the same old jarring intro note and slightly compressed piano backing ... Corrosion and Dominion/MR seem a bit clearer but nothing on first listen that jumps out at me
