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.

Once or twice, usually when trying to avoid thinking about something else---I've thought that I should organize a festival with a lineup including only bands/musicians who have used my straps + etc over the years. This would ideally happen in my back yard, with the spirits of Rowland S. Howard and Mark Linkous acting as emcees. #spiritualized #low #slowdive #wilco #leeranaldo #stephenomalley #swans #deathvessel #mymorningjacket#deanwareham #megafaun #neilhalstead #sunno)))
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.
