The Sisters Of Mercy – This Corrosion (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 24th October 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1987

“This Corrosion” is a song by English goth rock band the Sisters of Mercy, released as the lead single from their second studio album, Floodland (1987), in September 1987. The song peaked at number 6 in Ireland, number 7 in the UK, and number 17 in Germany. In the United States “This Corrosion” reached number 38 on the Billboard Dance Chart.

“This Corrosion” was written by Andrew Eldritch and produced by Jim Steinman, and is recognised as one of the band’s most well-known songs. It uses a 40-piece choir, and the LP version of the song lasts for nearly 11 minutes (the single versions are substantially shorter). Eldritch’s lyrics concern his previous band members leaving The Sisters of Mercy to form The Mission. The lead singer of The Mission, Wayne Hussey was once a guitarist for the Sisters of Mercy, and Andrew Eldritch once described his lyrics as being “a string of cliches.” The lyrics of the song are meant to be a parody of Hussey’s lyrics.

The Sisters Of Mercy – Lucretia My Reflection (US 12″ Promo)

Posted by DjPaulT on 23rd October 2012

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1987

“Lucretia My Reflection” is a song from the album Floodland by The Sisters of Mercy. It was released as the third single from the album in 1988.

The song was written by Andrew Eldritch for Patricia Morrison, who “always strikes me as a Lucretia [Borgia]-type person.” Its lyrics concern the fall of an empire, war and the consequent destruction of other aspects of life.

The mechanical structure of “Lucretia My Reflection”, with its repeating bassline and drums, coupled with the song’s cold lyrics, would go on to be a major influence on the industrial music genre, especially when coupled with the music video containing images of pounding machinery and grainy imagery.

“Lucretia My Reflection” debuted on the US Dance Chart on July 30, 1988 and remained there for six weeks peaking at #30. Iternationally the single paked at #20 in the UK and #22 in Ireland.
