SWANS: NOT HERE/ NOT NOW (HANDMADE 2CD)
The packaging to this handmade limited edition is made with a linoleum block print (printed on hand-brushed white ink). The drawing for the print and the printing itself was expertly accomplished by Nicole Boitos (signed and numbered 1 – 2000 by Nicole), based upon a concept/sketch by M.Gira. Each individual cover is further drawn upon / personalized and signed by M.Gira. Each one is unique! The songs on the CDs are live Swans recordings culled from the recent 2012/2013 tours. Most of the songs have not yet been recorded as studio versions – this is new material, in progress.
The collection also includes two crude demo recordings by M.Gira, of additional new material to be recorded for the upcoming new Swans studio album.
