Armed And Ready – Kerrang! 1982
SISTER: Andy Layton (vocals) lan Alexander (guitar), Ted Hadfield (guitars), Marlyn Layton (drums) and Ands Shorten (bass), formed June 1980 performing soon after as support act to major rock bands.
The music, which exhibits a versatility of moods within the hard rock genre, is best described as melodic heavy metal. The commercial appeal of the songs attracts a wide and varied audience from which Sister are gaining a strong following as well as some interest from UK record companies.
The aim of Sister on stage is to make an immediate impact (both visually and musically) and give their audience a lasting impression of a well-presented, energetic and memorable show.
Sister believe that even in the present economic recession heavy metal should have no cut backs.
Well, that’s not strictly true because the band are currently looking for a new singer as Andy Layton is about to leave.
