Swans - Biografia - Discografia


Swans foram uma banda americana de Post/punk que esteve no activo entre 1982-1997, conduzidos pelo cantor, compositor e multi-instrumentista Michael Gira. A banda foi um dos poucos grupos a surgir a partir da década de 1980 em Nova York e permanecer intacto na cena new wave para a próxima década. Formado por Gira em 1982, Os Swans tiveram algumas alteraçoes no line up, até a sua dissolução em 1997. Além de Gira, o único constante, outros membros eram o tecladista/vocalista/compositor Jarboe 1984-1997 e semi-permanente guitarrista Norman Westberg.
O primeiro album, Filth (1983), caracterizou a condução, ritmo agitado e tambores abrasivos. O conjunto é remanescente das primeiras bandas no Wave, como Mars, e os trabalhos contemporâneos de Sonic Youth , Filth foi o primeiro álbum com o guitarrista Norman Westberg, que teria um papel vital em grande parte da música de swans ", e seria manchete em todos os álbuns de estúdio .
Cop (1984) e originalmente sem título "Young God"ep foram ambos lançados em 1984 e relançados em CD em conjunto em 1992. Esta versão foi conhecida por vários nomes, geralmente por um dos seus dois A-Sides, como "I Crawled", ou, infame, como "Raping a Slave". Esta versão é muitas vezes confundida com o seu auto-intitulado. A música continua na mesma veia como Filth, e é novamente uma vaga lembrança do heavy metal tocado em câmera lenta. Swans destacavam-se, nessa época por, Gira nos vocais, na guitarra Westberg, Harry Crosby no baixo, e Roli Mosimann na bateria. Gira tinha mudado um pouco, tornando-se lentamente mais melódico, embora a rosnar ainda permaneceu. Algumas das músicas do EP, nomeadamente "Young God" e "I Crawled", tem uma melodia vocal real, insinuando os sons de lançamentos futuros. Young God é considerado por muitos como o melhor dos seus primeiros álbuns, por esta razão .
