202? | FANCLUB
SWANS were a band from New York City, USA active from 1982 to 1997, reformed in 2010, founded & led by singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Michael Gira.
Marginally associated with the No Wave scene at first, their original sound was slow and extremely heavy, with live performances that were often so brutal and physical that in a number of instances certain audience members were made ill, police were called and venues were shut down. "Cop" is the second album of the band recorded, mixed at Vanguard, N.Y.C., USA and Platinum, Zürich, Switzerland from february 1984 - may 1984, eight songs that are so slow and so heavy that you barely can stand it, forget MELVINS, GODFLESH, CORRUPTED, GRIEF or bands like that, early SWANS are devastating.
In the year 1984 the original version of "Cops" came out on the british label K.422.
