Matrix, Runout (Side A): SIS 020 A1 VERTEIDIGUNGSKRIEG A GIFT FROM THE RASPBERRY REICH MPO. Matrix, Runout (Side B): SIS 020 B. .Obviously, the album is a clear attack on the Mission/Sisterhood but it is as much an attack on the record company for exploiting the situation. It is interesting to note that Dominion and Torch weren't included on Gift, even though they were written at the time. Reply See 1 reply Notify me 9 Helpful.

The original artwork differs slightly, mostly inasfar as the print on the cover is smaller. The labels and the disc, respectively, look different as well, see the pictures down below.

You reap what you sow Put your face to the ground Here come the marching men Your colours wrapped around.
Each album was recorded by a different line-up; singer-songwriter Andrew Eldritch and the drum machine called Doktor Avalanche are the only points of continuity throughout. Eldritch and Avalanche were also involved in The Sisterhood, a side-project connected with Eldritch's dispute with former members. The group ceased recording activity in 1993, when they went on strike against Time Warner, which they accused of incompetence and withholding royalties . The single was later followed by the album Gift. Hussey's band eventually christened themselves the Mission. Hussey has since expressed regret about the entire incident. We never recorded as the Sisterhood, we just went out and played some gigs.
