Whee !

At long last, nearly 20 years after a missed opportunity[1], I've seen The Sisters of Mercy live. Yay !

The gig itself was great, highlights for me being Alice, Temple of Love, and This Corrosion (with "audience participation" for the big chorus bits!).

[1] Ok, now I'm starting to think my memory is playing tricks on me. I was quite certain that I'd missed a chance to see them in Adelaide (around 1988 or so), and another some years later in Melbourne, however I can't find any Australian gigs listed in the various Gigographies around the place. Am I going mad ?

Edit: Set list was something like : Crash and Burn / Ribbons / Dr Jeep / Detonation Boulevard / Giving Ground / When You Don't See Me / Flood / (We Are The Same ) Suzanne / Will I Dream / Summer / Dominion / Slept / Alice / Anaconda / Romeo Down / Never land (a fragment) / This Corrosion / Something Fast / Lucretia, My Reflection / ? (instrumental) / Temple of Love
