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).
