The SWANS EP is the first ever release from those lovely SWANS guys, released back in 1982. Interesting to hear this now with the great weight of their work in the following 30+ years: less brutal and more no-wavey, but still dominated by that heavy grinding mono-rhythm and the shouts of Gira. Reissued 12” on Mute Records.
8/10 Cai Sumption Customer review, 12th May 2015
Of all the Record Store Day exclusives released this year, this was the one I anticipated the most. This record makes for a truly eye opening experience for any Swans fan more familiar with the band's latter work. What Swans brings to the table with this EP offers more of a no wave feel, though the dark experimental noise sensibilities the band have since become known for are still very much present on this record. As always, the music Swans conjure on this record sounds way ahead of its time, not at all what you would expect for a 1982 release.
