Music Reviewer


peter Parrish spends significantly less time picking pickled peppers than you might think. Instead, he maintains a complex candle-lit vigil until The Sisters of Mercy decide to release any new material. He realises that it may be a long wait.

Meanwhile, here are some enjoyable records that he has arranged in a futile attempt at prescribing numerical meaning to their considerable qualities. For your convenience.
