the choice of Patricia Morrison as bassist -- beginning with her work on Floodland (1987) -- was not a decision made without weighing its aesthetic value. Music videos and promotional photographs showcased the perfect goth pin-up girl with her high arched eyebrows, black eyeliner, blood-red lips, teased-out hair, long black nails, and fetish-meets-renaissance wardrobe.
The Sisters of Mercy song "Lucretia My Reflection" was written by Eldritch about Morrison. The lyrics compare her to the historical figure of Lucrezia Borgia. She left the band in the early '90s, claiming money that was owed by Eldritch was not paid.
In 1994, Morrison released a solo album, Reflect on This.
In 1996, she was invited to join The Damned after bassist Paul Gray was injured by a fan in concert. That same year Morrison married the Damned's lead singer Dave Vanian. After giving birth to Emily Vanian in 2004, Morrison retired from the Damned.
