Old habit from the raves I go to. There's always some teenager who's at their first party who just doesn't realise how loud stuff gets. Gira even plays loud with his solo acoustic stuff.
Yep, last couple times I saw them in Koko people looked like they were in pain, not sure how the venue on Tuesday is going to be, but it's better to be prepared for the worst.
I just don't think a lot of people are used to the sheer physicality of the music that Swans are aiming for.
