Swallow were one of those 4AD bands that I always really liked, but never knew that much about. Here’s what the 4AD site has to say about them:
Swallow were a duo of instrumentalist Mike Mason and vocalist Louise Trehy whose music juggled elements of My Bloody Valentine, The Cocteau Twins and Curve. They released one album proper, Blow, as well as Blowback, a 4AD ‘Temporary Release’ featuring largely instrumental remixes.
I know live recordings of theirs are pretty hard to come by so I wanted to post this just in case there are some other Swallow fans out there. I traded with a guy in the UK for a couple of live recordings years ago and I’ve never seen any since. This song comes from their August 1992 show at The Camden Underground in the UK. Sorry for the poor quality.
