    NOTES From Teri Nunn interview (2002)

    Terri Nunn: I'm a huge Sisters fan! I did a song with Andrew [Eldritch] for a Best of Sisters record back in '94. I called him because I wanted him to work on my record originally. I went out to Germany. He lives in a cave (laughs) out in Hamburg. And he and I wrote some stuff and nothing really worked. But there was a song that I brought over that he really liked. He asked if I was going to use it for my record and, since I couldn't get anybody excited about it, it was really strange and dark, and he said, well, I want to do it. Why don't we sing it? It was called "Under The Gun" and we sang it together for the Best Of Sisters album.

    Interviewer: Those guys have been pretty low profile too, now for a while.

    TN: I know. Have they done anything lately? I lost touch with them the last couple of years. Have they put anything out?

    Int: I haven't heard of anything. Maybe they should get a group of miners together and search all the caves.

    TN: Oh, that's bad! (Laughs.)
