Swans Oral History book out now

swans bookThe Swans Oral History, Sacrifice and Transcendence by Nick Soulsby,  is out now. JG Thirlwell was interviewed extensively for the book about his involvement with the group. Thirlwell regards Swans as one of the most important groups of the last thirty years, and has a long friendship with their leader Michael Gira. There has been a lot of cross-fertilization between the Swans and the Foetus live bands, with many musicians being members of both, including Norman Westberg, Algis Kizys, Ted Parsons and Vinnie Signorelli. In addition, Thirlwell started his Wiseblood project with former Swans drummer Roli Mosimann.  The Swans song “Jim” from the album My Father Will Guide Me Up A Rope To The Sky is about Thirlwell. You can buy it now at Amazon or wherever good books are sold, as they say!

The print sells for $75.00 plus flat postage and packaging fee of $15 in the US, $20 in Canada and $26 in the rest off the world. Since the print ships in a tube by itself, when ordering the print you cannot order other items in the same shipment.
