“我活在这黑暗的世界上已有数万年,然而从来没有人知道我在这。”   “唤来永恒黑暗的天籁正是我”──盖诺斯提教 (Gnostic) 颂诗。   就像是一个谜,引诱纯真善良的听者推落坠入人性罪孽的深渊,面对皮肉面相之后的残肉骨血而惊骇。美丽的天鹅一生悠游于静湖上,传说无法发声的它却会在临终之际唱出自己的挽歌。反讽的是,这只黑天鹅唱出的却是宛若古代异端组织–盖诺斯提教的幽冥思想.古盖诺斯提哲学视人生与地球的生命为注定失败的作品, 唯有经"折磨"使自己解脱于现实的陷阱与幻象时, 才能寻回因逃离这个世界诅咒而失落的本源,重新发现存在遥远的星辰,原子核甚至是细胞中的原初统一.这便是天鹅在其悖德音乐背后的源动力.

  天鹅是在纽约绝对是拥有煽动听众成狂热信徒本领的顶尖地下乐团(cult Band) ,音乐界形容其为八十年间最恶贯满盈的家伙。曾经有人形容过“用慢一半的速度来播 Velvet Underground 的 ' Sister Ray ' 再从得到的古怪结果中拿掉幽默感,之后剩下的就是天鹅”。天鹅的音乐一向阴森冷硬,以极沉重的高度精神压力施予听众骨胳嘎扎碎裂和剧烈的头痛。所有的节拍拖拉式地以让人坐立难安的 2/2 拍进行,低音频率加强到像半失速飞行的失重无力程度。听每一张天鹅的专辑都会像是梦靥时心悸的感受──再溺水的池中,以超慢速之姿被主唱 Gira 的僵尸般哀嚎强迫以头撞墙。就是这种违反人类生理听觉的催眠式咒语,天鹅让人纷纷于无意识的状态上染上了抑郁孤僻的气息,走入地狱炼火。

  自八十年代的某一个黎明,纽约市的丑陋子宫精一番痛苦惊峦生出浴血的天鹅开始,天鹅在地下乐界叱咤将近十五年之久,但却在 96 年宣告解散。如今再记述天鹅的点点滴滴, 无非是为其恶迹留下见证吧。一付人格乖张无神论调的 Michael Gira 原先在洛杉矶自主发行地下刊物「No Mag」,后移至纽约组织了一个短命的虚无后叛客( post-punk) 乐团,“Circus Mort”。1982 年天鹅出了首张同名 E.P 专辑,Gira 担任贝斯手,其余团员一直不固定,迄今至少有 30 人受不了 Gira… 了解更多

  • Been eager to get into Swans for a while, just recently came up in my listening queue. Enjoying the later albums more than the earlier sounds so far, but I'm gonna keep with them until they click.

  • 1983-1987 is their only worthwhile shit
  • I'm rather new to Swans, but so far, I'd say Soundtracks is their best album. Almost every song on that album is among their best, and my only major gripe with the album is how some songs (Yum Yab and Volcano specifically) don't seem to fit the album's overall mood and break the flow. The Seer and To Be Kind are both excellent and I find them to be almost equal, though I believe The Seer holds up better when listened to in full, whereas To Be Kind has the better songs.
  • Soundtracks is my favorite album of all time, i think it's mesmerizing in its originality, but come on, it's also an album that can rub somebody the wrong way very easy, especially if they're not used to how Swans operates...I'd honestly say it's the absolute worst place for a neophyte to start, though I would recommend giving it another spin once you've gotten more into Swans' new stuff. The new stuff is much easier to get into, if you like To Be Kind, check out The Seer, which personally I find to be a better album. Maybe give Angels of Light a spin too, that was Gira's band between Soundtracks and the revival, really gorgeous atmospheric folk stuff.

  • What does it feel like to post self-contradictory bullshit statements and then attempt to excuse yourself with pathetic remarks like "Perhaps the problem is deeper than I first thought. Can't you even read?"?
