1983 06 19 & 29 Brixton Ace Events Newspaper Announcement.jpg


Brixton Ace, London, England

Extended decade-long research among the fanbase has credibly proven,

that there was NO concert of The Sisters of Mercy at Brixton Ace on June 19th that year.

This is an error most likely based on a change of digits.

The correct date of this concert was probably Wednesday, 29 June 1983.


As a matter of fact and as visible in the newspaper announcement here on the left,

Einstürzende Neubauten, were envisaged to play Brixton Ace on that evening,

initially together with SPK and Test Department.

According to music magazine SOUNDS of 16-Jun-83, Einstürzende Neubauten objected, however,

to play with the other two bands and The March Violets were booked instead,

together with The Loved One and DJ Stevo,

while The Sisters of Mercy were listed to play on June 29th.
