“Swans at Music Hall of Williamsburg. The most punishingly hot and loud show I’ve been to for a while. But pleasurably so, and they have a shirtless drummer named Thor. My brain is now a soft scrambled egg. Good night!” –snackish

“Watching the drummer from cop shoot cop be awesome w the swans reminds me how much I want a cop shoot cop reunion.” –sethcdiamond

Swans

The Aquarian: You already recorded part of the new album in Berlin?

Michael Gira: We recorded the songs that we’re playing live in Berlin, and also a portion of one that is built up from my guitar, my acoustic guitar. Now we have, at the end of this month’s tour, we have another five days here in Upstate New York, we’re going to record a bunch of new songs that I have written, and just build them up from the bottom up.

The album’s going to be sprawling. I don’t even know if you can call it an album–it’s just a collection of music happening at the time. It can’t be contained on vinyl, almost. It’d be like a six-vinyl set or something (laughs). So, I don’t know how it’s gonna be available, but we’re just gonna do it and put it out later.

The legendary Swans returned to NYC at Music Hall of Williamsburg last night (9/27) as part of a pair of NYC dates with Sir Richard Bishop at the Brooklyn venue. The band do it again TONIGHT with the amazing addition of Wovenhand to the bill. Tickets are still available. Swans will ALSO be at ATP New Jersey (who recently added Edan and announced set times) this weekend.

More pictures from last night are below…
