I remember seeing Sneaker Pimps at Glastonbury - my ears shut down for their own protection and I heard most of their set through my chest cavity. Remarkable :lol:

Going out for the evening so I won't be contributing much, if any, later on. Just time for The Spirit of the Beehive - Nail I Couldn't Bite

You don't hear this very often :shock:
I think Mick might have to call in the adjudicators to define whether this is a group or not. It'll be tricky to be sure. The Sisterhood came about from the demise of The Sisters of Mercy (already posted up by Steve ), and was basically a project by Andrew Eldritch - but as he was still under contract with his record label he couldn't sing on it, so he roped in James Ray and others to be in the 'group':
"Merciful Release announced the single's release with a press statement: 'From among the forces allied to Merciful Release we bring you the Sisterhood. capturing (in this instance) the musical bile of Andrew Eldritch, and introducing James Ray and the Performance ... of whom more soon.' "

An interesting (to some) bit of trivia lifted from Wikipedia and concerning the album this comes from:
Quote: The final episode of BBC drama Spooks' seventh series references this album. The Russian code broadcast on a Cold War number station is "2.5.0.0.2.5. Finland Red, Egypt White. It is twice blest. It is twice blest. Rain from Heaven". This code activates a Russian sleeper agent in Faversham (also a reference to the Sisters of Mercy as the Faversham is a pub in Leeds that "was where goth's dark lords, the Sisters of Mercy, would hold court"), Kent to collect a hidden portable nuclear weapon to be taken to Grosvenor Square in London and detonated at 15:00hrs. Also, while trying to get to London Bridge through an unused underground tube tunnel, Lucas North says the sentence "What is lost can never be found"; a line from the "Giving Ground" track.

You'll be pleased to hear that Andrew Eldritch has nothing to do with Shooglenifty, and they are most definitely a band :-D

Shooglenifty - The Whisky Kiss
