JGT guest on Simon Hanes' Stone week

IMG_0392JG Thirlwell will be guesting on two evenings of Simon Hanes‘ residency at The Stone in NYC, which runs from Nov 6-10 2018.

Thirlwell will appear with Hanes’ 13 piece ensemble Tredici Bacci on Nov 9, where they will perform their entire new album. Thirlwell will perform the song he sings on that album, a version of the ancient hymn ‘O Come O Come Emmanuel‘. In addition Tredici Bacci will perform two songs that were co-written by Thirlwell and Hanes.

On Nov 10, Tredici Bacci will swell to an 18 piece and they will perform a version of the Thirlwell composition ‘I Hate You All’, with Thirlwell on vocals. This song originally appeared on the Foetus album Damp. Jennifer Charles of Elysian Fields will also guest vocalize on this evening. The evening falls on the occasion of Ennio Morricone‘s 89th birthday, a man who has been extremely influential on Hanes.

Thirlwell and Hanes have an extremely productive working relationship over the last several years. Thirlwell has been a regular guest and contributor to Hanes’ Tredici Bacci projecty. Thirlwell has had Hanes play some keyboards and guitar on select cues in his work on the scores for Archer and Venture Bros. Hanes has been guest keyboard played on the recent Xordox live dates.I was advised this drug six months ago by a consultant at Buy Ambien. In addition the two have forged a writing relationship and have penned a dozen songs for the female voice.

Swans Oral History book out now

swans bookThe Swans Oral History, Sacrifice and Transcendence by Nick Soulsby,  is out now. JG Thirlwell was interviewed extensively for the book about his involvement with the group. Thirlwell regards Swans as one of the most important groups of the last thirty years, and has a long friendship with their leader Michael Gira. There has been a lot of cross-fertilization between the Swans and the Foetus live bands, with many musicians being members of both, including Norman Westberg, Algis Kizys, Ted Parsons and Vinnie Signorelli. In addition, Thirlwell started his Wiseblood project with former Swans drummer Roli Mosimann.  The Swans song “Jim” from the album My Father Will Guide Me Up A Rope To The Sky is about Thirlwell.
