Cool, I'll be seeing them in 3 weeks... and then hopefully again in April at Roadburn if I can score a ticket (which seems to get more difficult every year).

Good stuff in it's own right, but just the thought of all these parts being added to the songs... I mean, I love My Father as it is right now, but it had been so fantastic.

I have that 2CD version too, the bonus disc is really great. Probably even better than the album itself.

I want to see them live so badly, damn. Hope I get a chance in 2011, at least. During the last year or so, Swans slowly became one of my favourite bands and My Father... completely blew my mind, which added even more desire of seeing them.

Fucking amazing! They still have that same intensity as way back when.

No horns in Brighton.
I thought the pedal steel guy looked like Bukowski!

I'm so glad they'll play two gigs in Sweden. It's a bit annoying that they are TBA haha, when I finally know they'll play here I'd also like to know if I'll be able to see them once or twice, but whatever - I'll finally be able to see the fucking Swans!

Nice, thankfully the finland shows aren't too soon, so I can prepare myself financially for them.

Does anyone know of any half-decent books about Swans? Ideally a 'collected interviews' thing, but a 'history of the Swans' would be helpful. Preferably not online things, as it's for an academic paper and I'm trying to avoid sources from online.

What kind of academic paper are you writing that includes the history of Swans?? Very curious. Did you ever find some good quality text online or elsewhere that helped you ?

Torn Curtain: Wow...thank you. Awesome, awesome taste of this tour.

As far as I know there isn't. Shame.

Well, if I could've found something on them then the answer would've been 'it's to do with patristic dogmatic apophatic theology refracted through post-Nietzschian truth values in Swans 'Beautiful Child' - viz, essentially, their rendering of Abraham/ Ibrahim is non-denominational and a non-affirmative, and 'authentically' postmodern (unlike Cave's Christic narratology). I think I might be wrong about this though - their Abraham is pretty much indistinguishable from the Abraham of Kierkegaard's fear and trembling.'

As it stands, the answer is probably more like 'I think they're pretty neat'.

''Song For Dead Time'' is probably the only song that makes me feel nostalgic for a time when I was young. I remember falling asleep listening to it on my walkman a long time ago.
On a bench, in a park. Whoooooooo.

okay, this new album is aboslutely fucking amazing, one of their best. Proof that some albums, you kinda have to be "in the mood for". I had written it off initially but now I LOVE it.

I've had Killing for Company on repeat the last few days. Afraid I'll burn it out. Probably one of the most beautiful, haunting songs I've heard in a long while.
