  • The Wild Swans ~ The Worst Year of My Life

    4:16

    I was born guilty
    And I'll die lonely
    For the hours have chained me
    And the years they break me

    For our past betrayed us
    And this nation's failed us
    And the poor man's promise
    Is the lie that's honest

    Oh Lord, this is..
    The worst year of my life
    Lord, Lord this is..
    The worst year of my life

    You were born hungry
    And you'll die angry
    If your life has failed you
    Leave the cross you've nailed to

    You belong to no one
    And you own nothing
    There's no golden future
    Just an open wound end

  • The Wild Swans ~ Bitterness

    3:42

    Naked girl don't let the world degrade you
    The years ahead are strung like pearls
    Ragged boy when will your young life settle
    You're the brightest point for a thousand miles
    Lie down, prepare your wedding
    Life's hard, forget about the bitterness of life
    Spent my time praying for golden saviors
    When times were hard the good things came
    Goodbye world, god knows he never loved me
    The years ahead hang so heavy now
    Lie down, prepare your wedding
    Life's hard, forget the bitterness
    Lie down, prepare your wedding
    Life's hard, forget the bitterness of life

  • The Wild Swans ~ Whirlpool Heart

    3:01

    These are our humble days
    We had a high ideal
    But the family strays

    Once, I thought the world was blue
    Now it's raining colors
    A paralyzing hue

    I am never grieving
    The wicked things we've done
    Let's walk into the whirlpool's heart
    And die while we're still young

    Come to a place I know, where the air is clean
    And we're both alone
    Maybe, we could capture there
    Some of all we lost
    In that nether world

    I am never grieving
    The wicked things we've done
    Let's walk into the whirlpool's heart
    And die while we're still young

    Days forever dreaming the wicked things we've done
    Let's walk into the whirlpool's heart
    And die while we're still young

    I am never grieving
    The wicked things we've done
    Let's walk into the whirlpool's heart
    And die while we're still young

    Days forever dreaming the wicked things we've done
    Let's walk into the whirlpool's heart
    And die while we're still young

  • The Wild Swans - Revolutionary Spirit

    4:26

    I've put together this video to go with this, one of the greatest records ever released. As it wasn't on youtube I thought I'd upload it for all who are searching for it or for those just passing by. The late Pete de Freitas (Echo and the Bunnymen's drummer) produced this and recorded it in mono. He was also the drummer on this record and funded its recording.
    This is taken from the original 12 vinyl.

    Update.
    A bizarre coincidence. I've just noticed that the date I uploaded this, turns out it was the 20th anniversary of Pete de Freitas' death. Cue Twilight Zone theme.

  • The Wild Swans - Mythical Beast

    3:16

    The Wild Swans are a post-punk band from Liverpool, England, which originally formed in 1980 shortly after Paul Simpson (ex-keyboards) left The Teardrop Explodes. The band's personnel has been subject to regular turnover, with vocalist Simpson being the only constant member.
    The original incarnation of The Wild Swans lasted until 1982, issuing one single. A reconstituted version of the band issued two albums from 1988 to 1990 before dissolving again; more recently, Simpson put a new lineup together and the group issued a new studio album in 2011.
    The Wild Swans have not to date recorded any charting hits or albums, but they have enjoyed a degree of success and/or cult status in the US, Germany, UK, Japan, and especially the Philippines. The Wild Swans also spun off two charting splinter projects; Care and The Lotus Eaters. Members of The Wild Swans have also been members of such Liverpool-based UK chart acts as Echo & The Bunnymen, The Icicle Works, The Woodentops and The Lightning Seeds.

    The Wild Swans are a post-punk band from Liverpool, England, which originally formed in 1980 shortly after Paul Simpson (ex-keyboards) left The Teardrop Explodes and teamed up (on vocals) with Jeremy Kelly (guitar), Ged Quinn (keyboards), James Weston (bass) and Justin Stavely (drums). Stavely was later replaced by Alan Wills and although bass players came and went, Joseph Fearon played on both of the studio albums, recorded by a reincarnated Mark II version of the band.
    The Wild Swans have not to date recorded any charting hits or albums, but they have enjoyed a degree of success and/or cult status in the US, Germany, UK, Japan, and especially the Philippines. The Wild Swans also spun off two charting splinter projects; Care and The Lotus Eaters. Members of The Wild Swans have also been members of such Liverpool-based UK chart acts as Echo & The Bunnymen, The Icicle Works, The Woodentops and The Lightning Seeds.

    The brainchild of Paul Simpson, The Wild Swans formed in 1980 and created a unique and distinctive sound based around Kelly's jangling guitars, Quinn's chiming piano and Simpson's post-Romantic lyrics and brooding delivery.
    An opportunity arose when Pete de Freitas of Echo & the Bunnymen (an old friend and flatmate of Simpson's) agreed to fund their first single The Revolutionary Spirit (1982, Zoo Records). De Freitas, who ended up financier, drummer and producer for the single, was credited under his middle names, Louis Vincent. Bassist for the group at the time was Rolo McGinty, who would leave the group shortly after the release of the single, and found The Woodentops.
    Despite turning out to be Zoo's last ever release, the single received a measure of critical acclaim and in time, developed cult status. Subsequent to the release of The Revolutionary Spirit, weekly rehearsals were given a degree of urgency when the band was offered a BBC Radio 1 John Peel session. Songs on this session, all written by the team of Simpson, Quinn and Kelly, include No Bleeding, Enchanted' and Thirst. By this point, the band was rounded out by two new members: Baz Hughes (bass) and Joe McKechnie (drums).
    The Wild Swans were sporadically active in the early 1980s; touring with Echo and The Bunnymen in 1981 following a residency with The Teardrop Explodes. A Dave Jensen session came in spring 1982, with the band penning and performing The Iron Bed, Flowers Of England and Now You're Perfect. The group split very soon after this BBC Radio 1 session was broadcast.

    With their sixth full-length, Über den Sternen, an allegorical German rendering of their band name meaning Above the Stars, EMPYRIUM continue to draw from the magic and spirits of wild places, nature's beauty, and human relics of ages long past. Über den Sternen echoes this reconciliation of the old with the new on a musical level as well. The Franconian duo has brought the power of electric guitars and even those harsh vocals back, which marked their early works and stood strong upon the band's melodic black metal foundations. Yet EMPYRIUM also keep the dark folk style, which the Germans had progressively leaned towards with their later albums.

    What used to appear as a fork in their musical development has now merged into one breath-taking sound. The combined force of mastermind, multi-instrumentalist, clean and extreme vocalist as well as producer Markus Schwadorf Stock and classical singer Thomas Helm, who lends his amazing voice also to the Bayerische Staatsoper in Munich, is painting a radiant sonic picture. It comes with the melancholic grounding of the sophomore album Songs of Moors & Misty Fields” (1997), adds brushstrokes of the fairy-tale tempera colours of Where at Night the Wood Grouse Plays (1999), yet also uses hues from the selection on the DEAD CAN DANCE infused folk-palette that EMPYRIUM previously employed on The Turn of the Tides (2014). The crowning varnish is diligently crafted from rougher elements that reach all the way back to the Germans' legendary debut A Wintersunset… (1996). “We have found a new balance, Markus Stock emphasises. We have finally reconciled our vintage sound from the early days with the acoustic expression of the later EMPYRIUM.

    Staying true to the Romantic tradition, EMPYRIUM continue to take inspiration for their lyrical flights of fantasy from the local myths, ancient places, and natural wonders of the Rhön Mountains and their Lower Franconian homeland in the West of Germany. A circle is closing, and with EMPYRIUM's label Prophecy Productions, which were originally founded with the mission to release the band's debut album, celebrating their 25th anniversary in 2021, it happens in more than one way.

    Bringing Home the Ashes was one of the best records of the late 1980s, but sadly it didn't reach as much wide appeal as it should have. A quick listen of the song Bible Dreams reveals what an amazing sound the Wild Swans had, with lush, layered guitars and of course the brooding baritone of frontman Paul Simpson.
