I also have to thank you because I had no idea the Swans were still out there. I saw them in NYC in the early 80s when I think Gira was on bass and there was always a second bass player. I need to drag out my copy of Filth and take a listen today.

Just saw them last night in Austin and they were awesome. Their new albums are also really good so you should check them out when you have a minute. Thanks for the link!

Their resurgence has been amazing. Their last 3 albums (My Father Will Guide Me up a Rope to the Sky, The Seer, and To Be Kind) are among some of the best I've listened to in the past 5 years
