This is a quasi lost gallery from 6 weeks ago from a Swans show at the Fonda. These rockers might be a little older now but they still put on one of the loudest shows I’ve ever been to. Which is perplexing in the way that it’s in stark contrast to their precise, albeit loosely packed album work. Most of Swans studio recordings seem to value space and delicacy over a loud and assertive sound, but the live show blows your hair back. Also it’s most entertaining to watch the aptly named, Thor Harris, beat on a 8ft tall china type symbol while shirtless, showing off an amount of chest hair that leaves no question to his centaur roots.
