Had a really good spot to shoot from until a little scuffle broke out in the balcony which attracted too much security attention. Long story short, I got shut down right after Anaconda. All attempts to find an alternative vantage point failed.

Got busted at the gate, trying to smuggle in a friend’s camera. Managed to get it past security anyway because there’s really nothing a few ‘Benjamins’ won’t fix. Stood on a not so sturdy cooler in broad daylight, filming the show. The recording is of course a mess. Suffering equally from obstruction because of girls sitting on someone’s shoulder and the constant fear of getting shut down by security. The stupid digital FX don’t help the situation either. Befittingly, the band wasn’t on top of their game any longer as well. By 1992 the Vision Thing era incarnation of The Sisters of Mercy was a mere shadow of their glorious former years.
