Some Girls Wander By Mistake

The Sisters of Mercy

1992

Drawing on their earliest self-released singles before they signed to a major label, Some Girls Wander By Mistake brilliantly shows how the Sisters of Mercy had not only worked out their own particular aesthetic early on but proceeded to create landmarks that others made whole careers out of. Andrew Eldritch’s famously deep brood of a voice, combining sentiments both serious and wryly dramatic, matched with spiralling guitar parts and a drum machine punch on songs like “Alice,” “Floorshow” and the majestic “Temple of Love,” produced one underground landmark after another.
