RE-UPLOAD: The Sisters Of Mercy - Whistle Test Studios, London, UK - 02.04.1985 (Flac/HQ MPEG Video)

Thanks to the original uploader.

Original Info File:

The Whistle Test tracks come from a very clean vinyl bootleg 7". Sound quality is excellent and the performances are complete; I have even restored the beginning of First and Last and Always.

Whistle Test Studios, London (BBC TV)
1985-04-02 (transmission 1985-04-04)

01. First and Last and Always
02. Marian

As a bonus I've included video footage of the Whistle Test performance. Because it came with very muffled sound, I have synched the images up with the excellent audio recordings from the bootleg 7" - to very good effect, I might add. The picture quality is great, too (courtesy of Solitude - many thanks, P.!), though occasionally there's some static and picture travelling (but never do sound & vision go out of synch). Also, the beginnings of both tracks and the end of Marian are truncated. Still, there's plenty left to give you a fine impression of the band in full action! See screenshots.
