The Daughters of Bristol — Velvet Curtains (2005)

I'm not perfect, I have my flaws. One of them is enjoying clone bands of The Sisters of Mercy. I just can't help it. I have listened to too much music by the Sisters and need something new (but not different). The Daughters of Bristol may not win originality contests but they certainly do a great impersonation of Mr Eldritch. Ok, I admit... maybe too much at times. But I just can't help it, I love this song. For more visit their bandcamp.


  1. Listening to dubious Goth bands is not something you're alone in, my dear Dilettante. I guess we need a support group of some kind...

    1. Yes, you seem to have the same addiction problem with the Death in June clones, so I won't blame you on that.

      I must admit there are some pretty good clones out there, and sometimes they compete very well with the originals.

      Anyway last time I saw the Sisters of Mercy live they sounded very bad (like a hard-rock parody of themselves)... well I didn't see them, they were drowned in a sea of smoke literally. They had to open the doors of the theatre to let the smoke out (and it was a huge place).

      I guess you could say the actual Sisters of Mercy are now a clone band of what the actual Sisters of Mercy used to be !
