A gig for members of The Mission fan club.  I was there although this was taped by a friend. 
Some weird stereo at times, the sound gets louder in one channel and quieter in another and vice versa as the recorder is moved around.  I tried normalising sections of it, and I tried mixing both channels to mono but neither were acceptable so I left it as it is.

Swans - Primavera Sound, Barcelona, Spain - 28.05.2011 (DVD)

Swans are on top form on these tour, don't miss them! Thanks to the original sharer and to cEnda for sending the links to post here.

Original Info File:

Awesome 84 minutes set at Primavera's. Audience was both overwhelmed and excited.

This is a DVD (PAL) version of my HD recording seeded here:

The DVD has been encoded from the original MTS files.

Powerful word by Gira at the end, regarding the current Spanish kind-of-revolution.


Michael Gira - guitar, vocals
Thor Harris - drums, gongs, bells, others
Phil Puleo - drums, dulcimer, others
Christoph Hahn - guitar
Norman Westberg - guitar
Chris Pravdica - bass

Set list:
1. No Words/No Thoughts
2. Jim
3. The Apostate
4. I Crawled
5. Eden Prison

This is an audience video recording, first row, left side. There's an annoying focus light to the right, you'll notice it quite often.

The audio quality is limited by the built-in still camera mics, but it's overall A-.
PLAY IT LOUD! Automatic volume control sometimes is tricky and with such a sonic attack, it lowers itself quite a lot.

My camera has a 30 minutes limit for continuous recording and, in consequence, I stopped recording three times, in-between songs, to make sure no music was missed by the automatic cut-off.
There's one chapter per song, accordingly, except chapter one, which includes song 1 and 2 (NW/NT + Jim).

Although the singer introduces most of the songs I'm not always sure what he's saying, so one or two of the song titles may be wrong.  Corrections welcome!

There was a cut in Crystal High where 15 sec was missing, so the piece from 1:44-1.59 is a copy of 0.40-0.55, in order to replace the missing piece.
