‘Black Planet’ – The Sisters Of Mercy
O MY GOD, weren’t THE SISTERS OF MERCY fantastic on Monday? I’ve got all these tunes rolling round my head; tracks from VISION THING which I’m not quite yet fully familiar with. And no, I don’t even own it yet. Well, why not? To be honest, I have in fact had a great deal of opportunity when it comes to buying it, but I wanted to enact a kind of, I dunno, discipline, in a sense. I knew that if I bought it straight away, the gig wouldn’t be able to take me by surprise. I also knew it might put me off buying any of the singles (like when Floodland came out and I didn’t bother buying the 12-inch of ‘LUCRETIA’ / ‘TRAIN’, which I regret now; I wish I had because I saw it the other day and it’s about four quid!). So I will buy the ‘DOCTOR JEEP’ single and put VISION THING on my Christmas list (which also works out cheaper!).
I want more.

INTERESTING FACT: JAPAN have apparently reformed and are working on a new LP…
