Nick Soulsby‘s most recent book, Sacrifice and Transcendence: The Oral History of Swans was published in 2018 by Jawbone Press and is a collection of extensive and revealing interviews regarding the US experimental rock band Swans. Soulsby talks to key players in the band’s history and traces their evolution from noise rock provocateurs in New York’s 1980s underground music scene to one of the most intense, and must see live attractions of recent years.
