The Sisters Of Mercy anno 2014. Is there a point?

Before we can answer that question, however, there are Losers to contend with.

Naming your band Losers is just asking for trouble, but their open invitation
is an unmanned goal and there's no sport in that.

Losers produce industrial-tinted rock. They're better live than on record
and their sound frequently recalls shades of Nine Inch Nails, but they're a
bit too much in the Foo Fighters mould to be of any interest to me.

The recording is on a par with the one made of The Sisters Of Mercy later in
the evening. As always, samples are included to help you determine whether the
recording is worth your while.
