The Swedish sleaze/punk influenced metal outfit known as SISTER, who hail from Stockholm, Sweden, have been working hard during the last ten years earning the reputation of being one of the best live acts out there. SISTER is now back with their new record ‘Stand Up, Forward, March!’, their best and most direct approach yet! The album was recorded in the city of rock n’ roll -Upplands Väsby, Sweden – by SISTER and producer Jona Tee of H.E.A.T., mixed by Tobias Lindell (Avatar, Crash Diet, Mustasch, Europe, Hardcore Superstar etc.) and mastered by Christian Schneider at Scandinavian Mastering.
This gig appears to be a testimony to the recuperative powers of John Wetton’s constitution. Having been out partying in the company of David Enthoven and Richard Palmer-James the night before in Munich, he still manages an impressive performance on Doctor Diamond and indeed throughout the rest of the gig. Though the good Doctor would forever elude them in the studio it seems that the band really beginning to find the soul of this song in concert. Fracture has a risky quality tonight; Bruford is in an adventurous mood whilst David’s tron is a touch out of tune.
