WHIT THE FUUUUUUUUUCK?!?
this has to be some kind of elaborate joke...
One of the two bands released an essential album, the other didn't ( yet )...
the only fools are the ones that
listen to sub-goth 80's shite... urgh.
Did you really listen ?
Agreed some of it borders on credible, but most of it is just c.h.e.e.s.e. if you want that kinda thing doing properly, just dig out a Cure album.
Which Sisters album have you listened to ?
Don't make silly mistakes while you're defending the name of the good Sisters.
Goth (or at least proper Goth) is a loose genre that a lot of bands fall into due to their favour within the original scene, such as the Cure, Sisters of Mercy, Cocteau Twins, Dead Can Dance etc.
when the Sisters released their first album...
So you can hardly talk about an 'original scene' with the Cure and the Sisters.
The Cure have always rejected the goth tag ( not the goth fans, mind you, they buy tickets ) and I don't think it's fair to think of them as a goth band even if they probably helped create the goth sound.
...hell - i'm sure they'll go together perfectly. they are very similar
They may have been tarnished with the tag "goth" due to other more insubstantial plagiarists trailing in their wake but for a couple of years their singles and EPs were pretty much untouchable except maybe by The Cure and The Smiths.
Probably know each other.
just some douch with shades hiding in dry ice, singing to a drum machine
hence why this is the worst match ever.
shame on iliketrains, they should know better...
...we do get the chance to play in front of thousands of people who have probably never heard us. That can only be a good thing.
...it's Sisters of fucking MERCY.
That's a golden ticket, right there. I think it'll be a great match. And now, for my sins, I'm imagining iLiKETRAiNS covering 'This Corrosion' and Sisters of Mercy covering 'Stainless Steel'.
And grinning like an idiot.
