    The Go! Team are better live (lemme qualify that, I love the albums but live is an experience!)
    The Sisters of mercy are better on record. (Worst show ever, but there was so much smoke you couldn't see the stage so it may have been all recorded.)

    I assume you're talking about their recent tours? I don't know if I would say "worst ever", but it was pretty bad. Nitzer Ebb reunion tour was worse.

    However, I saw them in '91 in that brief period when Tony James was playing bass, and they were awesome.
