Additional Pictures and Information


  • A box-set edition of Kill The Lights does exist as well. It is limited to 5 units and includes a certificate and a white T-shirt showing the cover art.
    This box set is one of the rarest and most precious Sisters bootlegs to find. Anyway it has NOT been made by Palazzograssi, and was released
    some time later towards the end of the 1990ies.

Kill The Lights - Disc

  • For some time, the photo of the picture-CD-disc,
    you see on the left-hand side, has been circulating.
    This item is also titled Kill The Lights...

    There is, however, nothing known about neither its
    content, nor its origin, and it is generally taken for
    granted, that this is a home-made CD-r, rather than
    a serious bootleg product.

    Any additional information about this one, should
    nonetheless be very welcome ... ;-)
