About Me

Me, Myself, and I
The Sisters of Mercy are a rock band that emerged out of the British post punk scene in 1980-1981. After achieving early underground and Goth fame in UK, the band had their commercial breakthrough in mid-1980s and sustained it until early 1990s, when they stopped releasing new recorded output as a strike against their record company. Currently, the band is kept alive as a touring outfit only.

The group have recorded three original studio albums, of which the last was released in 1990. Each album was recorded by a different line-up, singer and songwriter Andrew Eldritch and the drum machines called Doktor Avalanche being the only points of continuity.

The group ceased recording activity in 1994, when they went on strike against their record company TimeWarner, which it accused of withholding royalties and incompetence. Although TimeWarner eventually let the band go in 1997, they have not signed to another label, and have chosen not to go the "independent label" route, despite showcasing numerous new songs in their live set.

Since 1985, when other original members left, The Sisters of Mercy became the artistic vehicle of Andrew Eldritch. Some ex-members of the group established bands Ghost Dance and UK band The Mission.

    This page was originally started by Nonni. However, she has since left Bebo and I recently discovered I had inherited it. As it has been somewhat neglected, I've decided to revamp it a little. I've redesigned the skin and will be adding lots of new Sisters goodies soon - so please be sure to check back regularly. - many thanx, Raglan

    Hi, First, let me apologise for lack of updates etc - Sorry about that, my old computer died and I was offline until I could save enough money to replace it and it took longer than I thought it would. A lot longer. Secondly, now that I'm finally back online, I find I just don't have the time to give this page the attention it deserves, so if there's any genuine fans out there who'd like to take over as moderators, please drop me a line at my homepage and I'll hand over the reins to you. The Sisters are a great band and I'd really like to see this page continue. Best wishes, Raglan

    This group may be of interest to some of you, check it out :) I've decided to make a group for people who are truly Goth, unlike so many other so called "Goth" groups which are full of wannabe Goth kids and glorified Emo kids.
