The Sisters of Mercy in Chicago

For this week’s installment of Vintage Video, we present an early U.S. performance by The Sisters of Mercy in the form of this full 50-minute set filmed at Chicago’s Exit Club on April 15, 1984. The show comes nearly a year before the release of the Sisters’ debut album First and Last and Always, and is notable for its inclusion of “Walk Away” with different lyrics and for a rare performance of ABBA’s “Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight)” — which Andrew Eldrtich introduces by saying, “Got any Swedes in the house? This one’s for the Swede in everybody…”
