Sister Dew

dEUS - Sister Dew (1999)

CD1

You can see the Sister Dew video if you play this single on a PC or a Mac. There’s a mistake in the software : it says “dEUS – Sister” instead of Sister Dew. The shooting of the video took place near Stockholm on April 23-24, causing the gig in Malmö (Sweden) to be cancelled.

The “session” versions were recorded during the dEUS performance on Dutch radio show “Twee Meter Sessie” in May 1997.
