Alas, they sound like nothing ((( I could even say that their image was stollen, but... the date (!) 1983. Germany!? Too strange. Can't remeber the Second wave band from Germany unless Girls Under Glass and Stimmen der Stille.
When Club Labyrinth was still around in Detroit, there were rumours going around that The Merry Thoughts were actually Andrew Eldritch, in the studio, and the band mimed and lipsynced on stage. In all seriousness, though, I really wish everyone would reserve their accusations of "this sounds like Sisters of Mercy" for The Merry Thoughts, cos they're really the only band I know of that genuinely *does*.
His voice is stronger than Eldritch's...
But I guess if you're a bass-baritone and simultaneously a 'goth', then how else can you sing?
Altho having said that tbf, why the named drum machine and the aesthetically sisterly image?
One thing that is different though for sure though, Eldritch denies sisters were ever a goth band whereas TMT appear to like the fact that they were a goth band.
I love some of their songs, especially boy sinister and black day.
A clone of sisters? Wouldn't that make them Rosetta Stone? ;)
Or do they run around insulting all their fans like Eldritch?
Honestly I don't care, they pretty much rock out with their goth out, and they put people on the dancefloor! What's not to love?
