Sister Chain (Skin Blues, Spinster Sister) and Brother John Higgins (former frontman of London band Val’s Basement) met in a mysterious Berlin bookshop on Halloween a decade ago.
Since that day the couple have played numerous concerts in churches, on boats, on street corners and gambling houses as well as the usual nightclubs, festivals and concert halls. They have toured Scandinavia, UK, continental Europe and the US and supported international acts such as 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 and their latest release “Staying in Soho” 7- inch picture disc was launched in March, 2017.
Sister Chain & Brother John live in Berlin with their sons Hamlet and Marlowe and their cat Edgar.
