how did a record this harsh and abrasive become such a meme on here? how are swans in general this popular?
because normies went and stayed went
and swans are only popular now because they normalfagged it up with their last two so the p4k princesses would take notice and re-appropriate this sliver of underculture for the weekend punks
Because it was an interesting and novel departure from overproduced synths and shitty 80s glam rock. It went as fucking far in the other direction as possible. Hence them being called no-wave, a direct response to new-wave.
