Interview: The Sisters of Mercy

Tuesday, 14th February 2012 9:57AM

Formed in Leeds in 1980,The Sisters of Mercy's brooding and slow burning metallic psychedelia defines them as one of the most singular and epic groups to emerge from the 80s. With a sound made distinctive thanks to the death rattle of drum machine Doktor Avalanche, the group is also centred around frontman Andrew Eldritch. With a backlist of unforgettable classics such as 'Lucretia My Reflection' and 'Temple of Love', The Sisters of Mercy has also turned out stunning cover songs of acts as diverse (and at times, unexpected) as Velvet Underground and Suicide to Dolly Parton and Hot Chocolate. The Sisters of Mercy is set to play a one-off show at Auckland's Powerstation on February 22.
