07 May 1981, University of York, York, England

The sixth known gig ever for The Sisters of Mercy ...

Allegedly, the performance was recorded and can be found on many Live Bootlegs like GOOD THINGS Plus 2 live songs, Monochrome, Brimstone & Treacle and Halloween's Day.

As a matter of fact, it is, however, more likely that part of the tracks on all the above mentioned bootlegs are taken from The Sisters' demo tape spread by the band for promotional purposes ...

Setlist

- order not confirmed and possibly incomplete -

  2. Watch
  3. Good Things
  4. Adrenochrome
  5. 1969
  6. Sister Ray


GOOD THINGS PLUS 2 live songs
Monochrome
Brimstone & Treacle
Halloween's Day




The LIFE Book
- no good source when it comes to correct setlists

NOTE:

The Sisters of Mercy: LIFE book + 7" (or CD-single), published by Stampa Alternativa (Rome) around 1988

gives a different setlist which has often been quoted also on bootlegs. Unfortunately, that setlist has proved WRONG !!!.

It adds various tracks to the list that were NOT played on the day presented here. At the same time 1969 is omitted.

Where these tracks appear on bootlegs - and with a wrong reference to May 7th, 1983 - they are rather taken from

The Sisters' Demo Tape. We detail the wrong setlist here only in order to eventually end all rumours provided otherwise!

  1. The Damage Done
  2. Watch
  3. Teachers
  4. Adrenochrome
  5. Sister Ray
