And another good band

The Sisters of Mercy is a good band. Not my favorite band (some of their songs are a bit drone-y for my taste) -- but they have some winners.

Here's one I like: "Lucretia My Reflection". I don't know what the lyrics are about -- but good snippets of imagery -- and a great melody and arrangement.

The music video is pretty neat-o, as well. Again, dunno what it's about -- but still cool.

According to the Wikipedia article, they have a large "goth" following -- although they don't self-identify as goth.

They also use a drum machine rather than a live drummer -- both in recordings and in live shows. I find that interesting, from a songwriting point of view.
