Gary Marx Demo Tape
A very small quantity of tapes with studio and live material to promote the band was distributed in 1981 ...
What you see here is one of these tapes and as such - a piece of Sisters History!
More of less consequently, this tape (or a tape as such) formed the basis for various early bootleg releases like - for example - the Floorshow EP or the Green Eldritch.
A very interesting and informative article about this tape, that one definitely shouldn't miss reading, is also available at the I Was A Teenage Sisters of Mercy Fan blog
