Swans in Belgium, May 17. This skinny passed it's 3rd anniversary on Norm's Tele a few months back and, as is obvious by the evidence, no one makes my straps look better than he does.

Short clip extracted from the mini-doc 'The Seer' made by Pitchfork on the recent SWANS tour. Norman Westberg is the star of the extract, Michael Gira is on voice-over. Norman's HOLMES strap is present. Love this.

The entire film can be seen here:

Norman Westberg (foreground right) of SWANS a few nights ago in LA with a HOLMES skinny strap on his Telecaster. A favorite Swans track, decent quality audio/visual, and Norman representing.

Turn it up.
