I just got an email from Ticketmaster alerting me to concerts in my area, and I noticed the Sisters of Mercy are playing the Variety Playhouse in Atlanta, Georgia on November 11, 2008. WHAT THE EFF? Come to find out, band dictator, Andrew Eldritch, who hasn’t released a lick of new material under the mothership SOM banner since 1990’s under-appreciatedVision Thing, drags some incarnation of the Sisters of Mercy out on tour just about every year. Damn, the cloves smokers are loyal. Turns out, once Eldritch escaped the clutches of his evil imprisonment by EastWest records, he refused to release any new music without major label support. Lessons are hard-learned by this guy. His rumored asking price is $3 million for three records. Ha. Don’t hold your breath. Anyway, enjoy this 1985 classic video for “Black Planet” off the band’s glorious debut First And Last And Always.
