Fans of the Noise rock band, Swans, know that “good vibes” isn’t necessarily their intention when making music. To be honest, Michael Gira and co. are probably just trying to give you nightmares. Here are some of their worst, meaning best. Via Village Voice:
In a recent interview with The Fader, Michael Gira of Swans claimed that he took acid 300 times before he turned 14. That’s a lot of acid for a young buck. That’s a lot of acid for any buck. A whole lot. I took acid about 78 times before I turned 18 (and I haven’t used it since). That’s not nearly as many trips as Gira, but it’s a pretty solid number of trips, I think.
Still surprised they never cracked the Top 40. Listen to “Blackout” below.
