SWANS Fer de lance de la scène post-punk new-yorkaise des années 80, la bande emmenée par Michael Gira avait interrompu ses travaux soniques en 1997. Depuis sa reformation en 2010 et la quadrilogie My Father Will Guide Me Up a Rope to the Sky, The Seer, To Be Kind, The Glowing Man, SWANS mène un cycle infernal de « non ending tour » qui prouve de quel bois ils se chauffent encore lors de concerts intenses. Des plages plus « gentilles » ont été décelées mais le goût pour le rock bruitiste et les scansions brutales reste intact ! BABY DEE Cette américaine d'origine irlandaise, à la formation de musicienne savante, a vu sa vie basculer quand elle a changé de genre : elle était spécialisée dans le répertoire liturgique, d'organiste, la voilà ourse jouant de la harpe à Central Park ou maxi-Shirley Temple juchée sur un tricycle géant ! Puis BABY DEE a commencé à écrire ses chansons qu'elle propose dans les cabarets raffinés, en s'accompagnant à la harpe ou au piano, collaborant avec Antony (d'Antony & The Johnsons) ou Marc Almond.

Wow. Really a great gig. These guys really know how to make noise. My ears are still ringing, and it was *so* worth it!

Absolutely fantastic! Sucks that I couldn't get a photo with Gira but I got him and Christoph to sign a copy of Filth I just got at the show.
