“Our lead singer had a ridiculous Five Year Plan which went horribly wrong. 

… in the current era of reduced band shelf-life? 

A band can mean a lot. We like to mean a lot. It’s not been easy.

What do you think the secret of your continued success is?

  1. We have many great songs.
  2. We know about rock music.
  3. We like rock music.
  4. We have fucked every opinion-forming member of your family.
  5. We rock.

At your first gig in York in 1981, did any part of you think that you might still be in the business thirty years’ time? 

At our first gig in York, we were amazed to find ourselves still in the business after thirty minutes. We’re more confident now. We have taught ourselves some stuff, and we have walked it like we talked it. It’s not been easy. 


One of the most influential bands of the post-punk era, The Sisters Of Mercy continues to enthral audiences worldwide.
