Near Meth Experience are a Leeds-based Sisters cover-band who sometimes play shortly before the start
of a Sisters of Mercy tour, when The Sisters are on a day out.

Most recently, they played - for the first time outside Leeds - a free gig at TRIX in Antwerp, Belgium

in preparation of the 2019 Autumn Club Tour. On that occacision, three new songs were introduced:

Kickline, Show Me On The Doll and Better Reptile.

Check this link for some lovely photos from the gig and more.


Any resemblance with the real band is - of course - purely coincidental, just like with that other band, the Speed Kings

Audience recordings from the 1997 and 2005 gigs do exist and are in circulation among the fanbase.

For the 1996 gig, there seems to be a recording as well, but this is questionable.
