Because Swans isn't really that loud. It's not like in the old days of rock where bands would often play stadiums with just their backline (no PA), the volume element in any new rock band is greatly exaggerated.
I've been to Dominican music concerts that are twice as loud as when I saw Swans.
>>61810288 if you dont provide source its bullshit, afaik they always ask him how he deals with the loudness and he says he never had to use plugs because it doesnt affect him... bandmates do have plugs though
He also said he practically can't hear after a tour. His hearing almost returns fully after a few weeks though. He's the only one on the band that doesn't wear earplugs. Feels like cheating he says. Just stupidity if you ask me.
>>61810242 >see swans >stand directly in front of Gira >wearing earplugs, show is literally the loudest sound I've ever heard >vibrations of the music are so strong that I'm physically exhausted after the show >look in bathroom mirror after show, my face is so pale and my eyes are so bloodshot that I look like a zombie No wonder Thor kept giving me weird looks
Also, in case anyone was wondering, Gira doesn't give a shit if people in the audience wear earplugs. /mu/ made me paranoid because I kept seeing stories on here about how he'd stop and make fun of people wearing them, but I was standing right in front of him and he didn't say anything about it.
>>61810473 You get used to it once you expose yourself for awhile I stood in the front both times I went, it's so much more entrancing and overwhelming when you do it without earplugs but if you do it with it's not bad by any means.
