Marvellous stuff. Fits in well with Swans' more nuanced, non-punishing White Light and Love of Life albums. This is the kind of shit that I can play four or five times in a row and just soak it in.

Yeah. It's definitely that kind of album. It reminds me a lot of Tabula Rasa-era Neubaten as well.

Johnny Thunders - 'Live In Japan 1991' (2 CDs +DVD of the show; 2017)
One of Johnny's last shows, very together, with a very tight pro band - the Oodballs, excellent sound. Very R&B oriented, shows what John had in mind when he made his fateful and fatal move to New Orleans a few months later.

Starfuckers, Metallic Diseases. Sonic Youth is the obvious comparison, tho it leans a bit more in the direction of 70s hard rock.

The Attrix Collection - The Piranhas
Authority is supposedly grounded in wisdom, but I could see from a very early age that authority was only a system of control and it didn't have any inherent wisdom. I quickly realised that you either became a power or you were crushed

I've never fully cottoned to this album of Love of Life. They're good, don't get me wrong, but I have a hard time finding a hand hold. It's not the brutal minimalism of earlier albums and not the aggressive post rock they'd eventually become. It ain't commercial by any means, yet weirdly pretty. They're the most atypical Swans records, yet they're a sensible place to start, too.

Yeah, I love all their stuff up to Chim Chim, but this one is particularly great.

I've come to really like this record in spite of it. That is, it's basically a tribute to slick, generic 70s classic rock, which, as a rule, I detest. Yet I kept playing this album and I went from curiosity to grudging acknowledgement to genuinely liking. There's zilch about it that I can defend or recommend, but I still like it.
