Untitled Will Do
jealous you're going to alt-fest, btw. i wouldn't care if i'd survive or not.

Ha! I still need to get the time off work confirmed… and I don’t even have a tent! I am looking forward to it but apprehensive about all that camping…

I bought the ticket back when they first announced the event so I’m going for a bargain £70. Most excited for Theatre of Hate, Killing Joke and the Nephs, so I better get Friday off!

Are you on spotify, or do you possibly follow any well goth clubs on any social music sites? x

I am on Spotify, yep! Here’s my profile. How about you?

These are the clubs in London you’ll usually see me at: 

Invocation

A New Dusk

Dead and Buried

And good ol’ Slimelight when there’s nothing else on and I just want to get trashed in a place where no one will judge me…

Check this out- the one source (Old, Fast and Loud blog) says these guys are on the way to Ultimate Sabotage/Neuroot tour, Groningen/Heerenveen.
@gothtriggers , check this out, for your horror

Cheers for this!

How did you stay so pristine at GWT?! I'm off to Wacken in 2 weeks and I've a feeling I'm going to look like a sticky lobster for the most of it

Ha, I stayed in a hotel at WGT - I couldn’t have handled camping during that heatwave! No idea how I’m going to survive at Alt-Fest.

The folks on the bus might possibly be fans of the dutch anarcho punks ultimate sabotage

Thanks for the heads up! What’s the clue?

More joys from the Sisters of Mercy convention at the Astoria in Leeds, 1989:

Nick has worked for the Sisters label for two years and obviously loves every minute of it.

“See this phone here?” He points to a black, rather old fashioned telephone in a glass cabinet. It has a card saying ‘On Loan from the band. Not for sale’ in front of it. “It’s from the Merciful Release office in London.”

Really? You’re not kidding, are you?

“When the office opened,” he tells us enthusiastically, “Andrew came in and said, ‘I want everything black’. That telephone was gloss red and I had to rub it down with wire wool before the paint would take and I could spray it. Took me ages.”

Adorable Eldritch and Patricia wannabes at the Sisters of Mercy convention at the Astoria in Leeds, 1989. I found the photo here, where there are lots of other great snaps of the Leeds alternative scene in the 80s and 90s.
There was, apparently, a lookalike contest at the Sisters of Mercy convention.
I wonder if this charming pair are the same people described by this journalist in their write up of the event:
Dallas spots Andrew Eldritch and Patricia Morrison! Shit!
Except, of course, it isn’t Andrew Eldritch and Patricia Morrison. But they look a heck of a lot like them. They’ll do.
Gary and Stephaney (“..N-E-Y, make sure you spell it right”) have travelled over from Hull. She’s 20 and training to be a hairdresser, he’s 23 and a “building preservation specialist .. a plasterer really,” he tells us, smiling.
Why are you here?
“Well, it’s the next best thing to going to a concert. They don’t do them anymore, and if they did it’d only be in big stadiums.”
It’s something we hear time and again through the day. They can’t see the Sisters live, so they come here instead. In poor old Gary and Stephaney’s case, it’s even worse, because they’ve never actually seen the band. Their disappointment is obvious.
I try to subtly steer the conversation around to the remarkable similarity between the pair of them and Andrew Eldritch and Patricia Morrison.
You look a lot like Andrew Eldritch and Patricia Morrison. Are you going to enter the lookalike contest?
Gary bursts out laughing.
“Dressing like this is .. pretentious anyway,” he explains. “Entering a lookalike contest would be just ridiculous.”
It’s difficult to take the piss when faced with such disarming and self-effacing honesty. These people aren’t the prancing posers we thought they would be. Dallas takes their picture and we go in search of wankers.

Bagged some winklepickers at the Underground Shoes sale in their pop up shop in Brick Lane. They’d been worn for shoots in the past so the guy let me have them for a tenner.
Only problem is they’re light grey, but with a slick of black dye the one at the back is looking pretty nice already. One more layer and I reckon they’ll be good to go. Bargain!
Excellent timing too as I had to superglue my old pair today after a strap fell off at Slimelight last night.

The rest of the EP is great too - dark, noisy post-punk at its finest. From London, to boot!
