    I love Temple of Love. Brings back so many memories from my clubbing days.
    I saw the Sisters play "live" in 2019. They were quite crap, although it was good hearing that played live again!
    When we were 18 or so, my mate had their logo painted on the bonnet of his white Triumph Dolomite.

    Look what you made me do Steve, although I guess the band is not quite your thing, just that vocalist.

    Oh I wouldn't say that, not totally, they managed a few good tracks, including the previously mentioned and...

    My mate, who I mentioned with the Dolomite, followed the band around a lot. I leant him my camera, a 35mm Cosina IIRC. He had loads of tour photo's including backstage shots. I think he even ended up on the tour bus. Relatively recently I found some of them amongst my photos (I think I must have developed them for him). Might see if I can dig them out (unless I gave them to him).

    Not quite my cup of tea, but my brother (left winter) is streaming live on youtube at the moment. It was supposed to be in Berlin, as part of a festival, but Covid stopped that.

    Just Piaf Padam, padam.
    It says: "Remember your loves
    Remember cos it's your turn
    There's no reason why you shouldn't cry
    Encumbered with your memories
    "And me, I see again those who remain
    My 20 years make the drum beat
    I see the succession of gestures flash by
    All the comedy of love
    To this tune which just keeps playing

    I saw them in a tiny club in Chelmsford, the stage was kerb high and I was almost nose to nose with the singer, quite an unnerving and awkward gig to say the least. Although they ripped through the set and ignored my nose completely.

    Triumph dolomite, my very first car! Sadly no sisters of mercy paintwork though.
    Ive got a feeling I've seen sisters of mercy live, but it's all a bit of a haze from those days

    Just because this thread is here, may I put in a tip for this set by Marc Ribot's Ceramic Dog on KEXP/Seattle:



    If you like that, then their "lockdown" album,'What I Did On My Long Vacation' is worth hearing (esp. 'Beer' and 'Hippies Are Not Nice Anymore') which you should really buy, but is up on yootoob anyway:

    Allegedly produced by Joe Meek, and influenced the Beatles' Lady Madonna. I wonder what the lovely Samantha had to say about that?

    Apparently she had a couple of points of interest that made people rise to the occasion.

    A couple of Radiohead albums today

    The Bends







    And OK Computer




    Another of my claims to fame. I stopped some of this band when they were just starting out, riding their bikes in the town at night.
