Pete Swanson is a dude most noise savvy folks know. His work in the duo Yellow Swans has an very influential role in 00s experimental music. Since then his solo music has continued to captivate people. For Deathbomb he also has played a very important and unsung role. His work mastering records, using a particularly aggressive approach, was vital towards creating the sound of the first Foot Village album ‘World Fantasy’ and dozens of other releases. Deathbomb also had the honor of releasing a handful of Yellow Swans recordings, including a 7” by them that I got to working closely on as a producer as well. (Which, btw, you can grab FOR FREE from our bandcamp page).
Impose Magazine just published a big interview with Pete. His work is as relevant as ever. I highly recommend this fine read.
We probably don’t need any more abstract scrapings either, but people keep picking up my records and writing about them so I don’t see a reason to not put out something I’d be doing anyway. I can’t quit music, I’ve tried too many times.
