Fur Bible

The Fur Bible 12" was once requested by Monokrom. I could finally get my hands on a copy.
This 12" (also released as a 7") is the only release of the band. Notorious members are Kid Congo Powers of The Cramps and Patricia Morrison, who once was a member of The Bags, Legal Weapon, The Gun Club and after Fur Bible she joined The Sisters Of Mercy. In the mid-90's she even joined The Damned.
Fur Bible also did a tour with Siouxsie & The Banshees.
The songs have a strong Cramps feel but are much darker and moodier. Excellent production work of Clint Ruin (aka Jim Thirlwell).

I know that a lot of people find this release to be medicore at best, but I really do enjoy it.

Further notes on Patricia Morrison... she was one of the driving forces behind SOM side-project The Sisterhood, and did a solo album in '94 called "Reflect On This".

Great post.
According to Andrew Eldritch she didn't play in The Sisters Of Mercy Floodland album. She was simply there... And watching promotional TV appearances you believe him.

Based on the law of band association I should like it so will dutily try it later.

Cool. As always this set of files trumps what I had...and the cover is a bonus.

Patricia is in the more recent Damned incarnation with Captain, Dave, and sans Rat! I heard she is married to Dave, but never looked to confirm it. Need to pull my Grave Disorder CD to see what was written in liner notes, but I do think Dave made some sort of reference to more than just working as a band.

Curious Guy said...

Yes i've read it somewhere too that she married to Dave.
Mehrlicht, I also read that she never got paid decently for her work with SOM. Who do you believe? :)
