MEET THE AUTHOR: Two Events with Rare Music

Talk about a niche, within a niche ... some of you within striking distance of Brussels or Leeds might be interested in these.

"MEET THE AUTHOR". Paint My Name In Black and Gold" Crowdfunding Events.

 

EVENT ONE: 18.00 - 19.30 (CET) at Bar Des Amis, Tervuren 3080, Belgium. 27 APRIL 2019

We will play the nine-and-a-half instrumental, 4-track home demos that Wayne Hussey made for a proposed second Sisters album, that were rejected by Andrew Eldritch in Hamburg in the early autumn of 1985. These songs all went on to become early Mission tracks.

We will also play part or whole of the bootleg of The Sisters first Brussels concert in 1983, which resulted in their 'arrest', as seen in Philippe Carly's legendary photos.

I can share my research on these and other Sisters and Leeds-related topics. I also expect to benefit from hearing what you have to say and learn some things useful for the book.

The cost to attend is €20 in cash on the night. When you know you can come, please sign up via this Doodle: https://doodle.com/poll/wwkf58yidsid9can

The maximum number is 30 people.

All funds raised will go to the book and will be pledged live at the event.

I will be available for the rest of the evening, for those who wish to continue to socialise and chat about The Sisters and Leeds.

 

 

EVENT TWO: 13.00-14.00 (Leeds Time) at Northern Guitars, Leeds. 26 MAY 2019

We will play the nine-and-a-half instrumental, 4-track home demos that Wayne Hussey made for a proposed second Sisters album, that were rejected by Andrew Eldritch in Hamburg in the early autumn of 1985. These songs all went on to become early Mission tracks.

I also hope to play selections of bootlegs of early Sisters Leeds gigs.

I can share my research on these and other Sisters and Leeds-related topics. I also expect to benefit from hearing what you have to say and learn some things useful for the book.

The cost to attend is £15 cash on the afternoon. When you know you can come, please sign up via this Doodle: https://doodle.com/poll/9uh6d7hyimsknnax
