Who is Ben Gunn?
He played on the singles from "Body Electric" until "Temple of Love", despite some people believing he was there only for live purposes. However, he didn't play on The Reptile House EP. Eventually, the band was to sign to WEA and Ben Gunn quit in disgust, claiming personal differences between himself and Eldritch, and claimed that the Sisters started as a joke on rock outfits, and now they'd become one.
He later went on to play in a band named Torch and after formed Anabas, releasing two singles under this banner, and has barely been heard from publicly since. Indeed, whilst he was in the band he often would not allow himself to be photographed by interviewers.
Following the lack of success for his post-Sisters of Mercy projects, Matthews left the music industry. It is believed he studied economics at Liverpool University and, following post graduate study, later qualified as an accountant.
