sister chain & brother john Short Info

The duo Sister Chain & Brother John formed in July 2005 when Berlin-based singer Sister Chain (Skin Blues, Spinster Sister) and Brother John Higgins (former frontman of London band Val’s Basement and fly by night producer) met in a mysterious bookshop.

Since that day, Sister Chain and Brother John have played numerous concerts in churches, on boats, on street corners in war zones as well as the usual nightclubs, festivals and concert halls. They have toured Scandinavia, UK, continental Europe and the US and supported international acts like Lene Lovich, Jowe Head (Television Personalities) and Michael Dempsey and Lol Tolhurst of The Cure.

They released their debut album “Darkness to Warm Your Heart” in 2008 and followed up with their second album “The Androgyne Show” in 2012. Their EP “Take Cover” was released in 2013.

Looking like Victorian gentlefolk, wielding a distorted bass guitar and a tambourine, they relate stories of the wicked set and the lovelorn; of teenage daydreams and erotic nightmares, creating what can best be described as Parlour Punk or latter day chamber music.
