The first single from Sisters Of Mercy’s “Floodland” album. This single was released on 18 September 1987. Each format (7 inch, 12 inch, CD and cassette) contained a different mix of the song, a fact that Eldritch explained this way: “Originally I only wanted the long version, for me the song had to be this way. But the record company vetoed that, so I spent a weekend at the mixing desk. I liked the three minute edit the best, then I thought I’d do another one at mid-length. The LP mix is the same as the 12 inch version, it just fades out a bit earlier. The cassette version is different again cos Jim insisted on doing an edit of his own. He’s more into little bits and pieces”. The B-side of the single was “Torch”, Eldritch had played every instrument himself and produced the track on his own. “Torch” had been written in 1985 for the aborted Left on Mission and Revenge album. The 12 inch single added Eldritch’s version of the Sisterhood song “Colours”.
