What were you doing when we first told you about We Rose from Your Bed with the Sun in Our Head (TMT Review), Swans’ two-disc live album? Whipping up a batch of oatmeal cookies? Rollerskating? Googling pictures of cats wearing pirate hats? What did you do when you got to the part about the album selling out before you could snag a copy? Burn your cookies? Fall off your skates? Forget to feed your real cat?
How would you feel if I said that you could order a copy of that very album right now if you wanted? That it’s currently available via the Young God website and maybe at that dingy little record store around the corner? That Michael Gira says “it would behoove you to listen to the music at a generous volume level?” Stoked? Jazzed? Over the moon?
Aaaannnndddd how about if I rained all over your little CD parade and said that you missed out on ordering a handmade copy Michael Gira’s book, Eight Stories, which would have included a CD of readings by Michael Gira himself? You could read Nine Stories and pretend it’s almost sort of the same?
At least you’ve got The Seer to look forward to…?
