Swans’ live album Public Castration Is a Good Idea, originally released as a limited edition “official” bootleg in 1986, is now available on vinyl for the first time since that original collectible release. Public Castration… includes live recordings from UK shows at the ICA, London, The Garage, Nottingham and the University of London Union in support of the release of Holy Money in 1986, featuring tracks from that album along with Greed. Swans for these recordings were Michael Gira, Jarboe, Norman Westberg, Algis Kizys, Ronaldo Gonzalez and Ted Parsons.
“... there's no denying the intrinsic entertainment value of having a copy of Public Castration is a Good Idea around the house. The title alone is enough to freak out your parents and roommates; imagine what'll happen if you actually play it for them.” - Pitchfork
Unsigned copies also available though Mute in the UK.
