The Sisters Of Mercy - This Corrosion

Released in 1987. Goth-rock anthem, incorporating a 40-piece choir. Throughout The World’s End, Gary sports a faded Sisters Of Mercy T-shirt.

“I didn’t really have any of their albums, this was the only song I really knew, but Simon was a major Sisters Of Mercy fan. The other day he was laughing, because he realised he refers to This Corrosion as ‘later Sisters Of Mercy’ but only as it’s a 1987 track, as opposed to 1985. Simon was very much into Goth bands like The Mission and Fields Of The Nephilim as a teen. And there was definitely that neo-medieval phase which inspired the look Gary is trying to pull off. Fields Of The Nephilim was a band that dressed in big dusters and black hats and always seemed to be covered in dust. It was most probably flour.”
