Sisters Of Murphy / Lizzie And The Banshees - Double Bill: DERBY
Mutant Movement brings you the best tribute bands from around the globe, a Goth double bill with Sisters of Mercy and Siouxsie tributes.
The Smurphs as they’re known in the North are known for their Marathon sets and this will be no exception so be prepared to stay out late, they cover every era of the Sisters, some say better than Eldritch & co.
Lizzie and the Banshees cover the whole Siouxsie back catalogue with a Marathon set approching two hours long. From the punk origins in ’78 thru the decade that brought you Goth, the Eighties!
Back in 1993 a Ginger haired Guitar God visited Colorado USA. Whilst there he was thinking of his girlfriend back home in Blighty, a Sisters fan, and as a result purchased Floodland and Vision Thing from the local mall. About one year and one girlfriend later Ginger visits Huddersfield and witnesses an excellent gig by a band called Sister Sludge – a Sisters covers band. They were drunk, they were ropey but Ginger was impressed… The rest is history!
‘Lizzie and the Banshees’ are without doubt, the most authentic Siouxsie tribute, recreating those early days from the 100 Club through to the mid 80s. The Banshees were definitely unique with real punk classics like ‘Love In A Void’ showing their origins then they developed a sound of their own with the likes of ‘Happy House’ and ‘Christine’. Releasing an album every year from 1978 to 1984, you will hear tracks from ‘The Scream’, ‘Join Hands’, ‘Kaleidoscope’, ‘Juju’, ‘A Kiss In The Dreamhouse’, ‘Nocturne’ and ‘Hyaena’ performed with great musicianship and accuracy like you won’t anywhere else.
