RE-UPLOAD: The Sisters Of Mercy - No Time To Cry - German TV - 1985 (Proshot DVD)

Here's a gift for all of you . This is the playback performance of TSOM on german TV in 1985, with an image quality that is lightyears away from any source avaiable until now. It's a DVD, image 4:3 Letterbox, so to make it fit on your 16:9 LCDs you'll have to use the zoom function. If you watch it on VLC player, use the crop function to 16:9.

A HUGE THANK YOU to sleepchamber for sending this video to me.


Fan made DVD for trading and sharing porpuses only!
Support the band by going to the concerts and buying merchandise.

Glasgow's Radio Clyde used to record loads of shows in the early 80's this one escaped but locked away in a vault somewhere is a recording of the Cure at the Glasgow Pavillion on the 25th of April 1982 on the Pornography tour - this to my knowledge has never ever been broadcast

Sophya are supporting The Chameleons Vox on their two Dutch dates in Utrecht
and Apeldoorn. I'm attending both.

Sophya look and sound like a hundred other bands signed to tiny labels that
promote third-rate post-gothic bedroom projects under frivolous descriptors
like 'darkwave'.

It's not that they're awful; it's just that we've seen and heard it all
before. It's been done to death over the last 25 years. Even that is
survivable if the songwriting is best of breed or there's some enticing new
twist on an old theme, but there isn't. Musically, lyrically and visually,
it's a conveyor belt of threadbare, mothballed electro-goth clichés.

At 45 minutes, it's a long support set. The Chameleons have been generous, but
it's been a long day for me already and I'm relieved when Sophya finally make
their exit.

The recording is excellent, if anything better than the one I make later in
the evening of The Chameleons.
