Bursting out of the ‘no wave’ scene with a ferocity unlike anything previously witnessed, New York’s Swans immediately gained a reputation as live force to be reckoned with, often playing at near-impenetrable volumes. Led by vocalist, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Michael Gira, the band carved their way through the underground music scene with ten stunning albums before disbanding in 1997. Using hitherto-unseen archive footage, and interviews with band members and friends, Marco Porsia’s film revisits this important band’s intense career, and documents their phoenix-like reappearance in 2010.
