This was followed by the compilation albums Some Girls Wander By Mistake and A Slight Case Of Overbombing in 1992 and 1993 respectively, and the band have been touring ever since.

The Sisters of Mercy are Chris Catalyst (guitars), Ben Christo (guitars), Andrew Eldritch (vocals), Nurse (nurse to the Doktor) and Doktor Avalanche (drums and bass).
