Alice (Dirty Funker Mixes)
Although this bootleg was released in the 2000s, the old head-and-star logo
and the familiar Caslon Antique font were used. The cover, the typical black
inner sleeve, the labels, all of this looks very similar to an official/promotional
The Sisters Of Mercy release.
This, added by the initial (but wrong) impression that the bootleg was released
in two versions - "Alice 2004" and "Alice Dirty Funker Mixes" - caused quite a
frenzy when it surfaced, especially, since the vinyls were soon sold officially
in common record stores.
In addition, the mix featured here was said to be a VERY good one and that it
ought to be heard as it featured a dance-oriented side to an early Sisters recording.
- Label: none - private release of Mr. Dirty Funker
Mr. Dirty Funker has also released several other bootlegs
such as a remix for Nirvana's Smells Like Teen Spirit.

(the latter most likely an edited fake copy of the vinyl)

' 12" Version
- The black vinyls come in a rough black cover with a golden print.
- The lyrics of Alice are printed on the back of the cover.
- Label Side A shows the Merciful Release logo.
- Label Side B gives the following information:
- rise and reverberate

- The CD-r seem harder to find than the 12" version,
although the tracks of both were soon ready for download all over the web.
- The CDr - like the vinyl - claims to be an official WEA promo, which of course isn't true
since The Sisters had already left the label in 2003.
