Hi. Tell us your story in 3 sentences.
Hi! Swingers is a 5 years band. We’re the rest of a old noise band… Max, Yvan & Ben were the creators. At the beginning Swingers made a hybrid post rock – math rock and after a few years we met Pierre, the fourth cavaliers. Then we took the way to a classical and instrumental post rock with a point of noise directly come from the 90’s…

What is your “home ground” area? Tell us something about it.
Spaghetti western movies, distortion, heroic melodies, melancholy… Mixed in a poor area abandoned by the mining industry in Belgium. We live at a few miles from Cecilia Eyes town. Really similar to our area.

What’s the best live act in your area? Tell us something about it.
Magasin 4, in Brussel – http://www.magasin4.be/, that’s the best one! Some people who love such music that they work free to have a real alternative music place. Just near our houses, we have Dour Music Festival… another way…

Which artists have influenced your style & sound, if any?
Some Mogwai, Explosion In The Sky, Godspeed You Black Emperor… Sure, that’s our origins…

Any favourite artists?
You got already a few names in the previous answer. But we’re fans of many more sounds. Sonic Youth, At the drive in, Boy’s Life, Neurosis, Russian Circle… The list could be long… :)

What’s the last live music show you’ve seen?
Part Chimp! At Magasin 4 in Brussels for me. And we were with Yvan at the live show of Caraques and Jubilé, two french noise bands at Phoenix Bar in Mons, our town…

Beatles or Rolling Stones?
Pink Floyd

Tell us something about your best and your worst memory on the road.
The worst storie is surely to split off with a friend. But finally, we found the right balance in the band with the Pierre’s coming… For the best one, i think that the last show in M4 was amazing. This is the day when we became really SWINGERS.

What do you think about LiveTrigger?
Happy to see that people who’s interesting by music have yet this kind of intention. Try to help alternative culture is a great battle. And thanx to find us… naturally… :)
