Cover Song - Gimme Shelter performed by The Sisters of Mercy

Today's cover song is a cover of Gimme Shelter written by The Rolling Stones and performed by The Sisters of Mercy.

Not sure how to describe The Sisters of Mercy (SoM to their friends) to my American readers. They have a unique sound of their own. There's lots of goth and punk in there, but with a dab of electronica and a healthy portion of rock, all stirred together and served with sunglasses. An acquired taste to be sure, but one I happily acquired back in my black t-shirt wearing days. I was as likely to be listening to SoM as the Clash or Iron Maiden, so use that as your guide, but I do recommend giving them a try.
