The Sisters Of Mercy

The Sisters Of Mercy appearing at this event

Top-notch rock'n'roll psychedelia with a punk edge. At their peak in the mid 80s they stimulated sales of black hair dye and crimpers like no band before or since. The Sisters of Mercy achieved early underground success after forming in Leeds in 1980. They had their commercial breakthrough in the mid-1980s and released three studio albums, including their last studio album Vision Thing in 1990. This was followed by the compilation albums Some Girls Wander By Mistake and A Slight Case Of Overbombing in 1992 and 1993 respectively, and the band have been touring ever since. The Sisters of Mercy are Chris Catalyst (guitars), Ben Christo (guitars), Andrew Eldritch (vocals), Nurse (nurse to the Doktor) and Doktor Avalanche (drums and bass).

A.A. Williams

A.A. Williams appearing at this event

Evoking influence from ‘Moon Pix’-era Cat Power and her serene contemporaries such as Emma Ruth Rundle, A.A.Williams is coming out the gate as an exemplary songwriter with anthemic and passionate melodies; the swathe of which leaves the listener doused in sonic density. An unearthly voice soars over delicate yet decisive chords at a performance from the dark-folk singer-songwriter whose debut EP met with awed reviews. A.A. Williams has been aligned with the likes of Chelsea Wolfe, but is also moulded by the fragility and experimentation of artists like Radiohead and PJ Harvey. Williams arrived in January 2019 with her self-titled EP, going on to perform at Roadburn and ArcTanGent festivals and lining up appearances with Amenra, Russian Circles, The Sisters of Mercy and Cult of Luna.
