Gracious Fabio... That Swans tune was the first I ever heard from them, many years ago. Was hooked instantly. The rest, as they say, is mystery...

I think you may have just left the impression to a casual listener that David Bowie is dead… my ear caught a little connection there -" bass player dead - and Bowie checked out"
