80's Band Forgotten #3 & #4




Lords Of The New Church & Sisters of Mercy

A Double Shot!! These bands have a similar feel to me. They are those bands that I probably considered to "Heavy" back in the 80s. I was leaning more towards OMD and Depeche Mode, Tears for Fears and Ultravox to be bothered with the "New Wave Heavy Metal".

Let me tell you. These guys are good. Granted, some of their stuff is still a little rough, in my opinion, but there is something about hearing the Sisters "This Corrosion" that just makes you resigned to pay the ticket when you get pulled over. I added "This Corrosion" to my CD mix. it now is part of my wife's CD mix . . . .and my daughter's CD mix. . . . .and the ever popular "Deathlok's THINGS I LEARNED FROM DAYGLO RADIO mix. The Lord's OPEN YOUR EYES and DANCE WITH ME are a point of debate in our house. The girls (see above) don't realize that DANCE WITH ME is a better song that OPEN YOUR EYES (and No! It's not debatable)

If you are in need of new music and some cathartic release, check out these two bands.

i'm a huge fan of Lords of the New Church and Sisters of Mercy. I learned about Sisters on a trip to the UK in 1987. IMHO, their Floodlands is one of the best alternative rock "albums" of the 1980s.

Sisters is also great Halloween music. I'll play Floodlands through speakers on the front porch, and it really adds quite a wonderful ambience.

bauhaus' Bela Lugosi is naturally included, but somehow Lugosi isn't as spooky.
