30 records in 30 days from 2 collections from one household, day 20: Sisters Of Mercy, Walk Away.

A Challenge: 30 Platten in 30 Tagen / 30 records in 30 days Sisters of Mercy, Walk away

30 records in 30 days goes into its twentieth round: I’m gone for a while.

Now we come to one of the groups I celebrated not only during my student days, but right up to here and now. The Sisters of Mercy. And for once, there’s a story to go with them. I will never forget the one and only Sisters concert I went to with a friend. I’ve forgotten the location, because of course I didn’t keep the ticket.

The atmosphere was fascinating. The singer Andrew Eldritch in a black coat, the rest of the band members in black clothes on stage. In the middle of a dry ice fog. Indirectly lit from the back of the stage. That’s how I remember the whole stage set-up. Ingenious.

The fact that you could only see the four of them dimly created a very strange, unreal atmosphere. As if there were no people on stage, but ghosts or aliens. Brilliantly done. Something like that should be realised in a club.

Here are the two most popular tracks from the maxi-single:
