I heard your music in a shop. As unlikely as it may seem. I am directed to the salesperson and asked: "What is this damn good music?". Your music !!!!! Very good. Really.

Thanks for the add.


Jun 29 2008 11:20 PM

Thanks so much 4 the add!

I wish you put "The Measure of this moment" in the player!!! I've added "Saved by the Summer" on my profile but i'd love to get that one!!!
And be sure to see me on october 17th in Paris!!!

South of Rain and Snow is excellent. I was worried this was a David Freel solo record, where is Sean on drums ? Down the 101 I suspect. I love what you do and you should make records like this all the time. We saw you at the Bar and Grill in SL F%^king City in ohh 1990ish, you really need that slidey guitar sound back in the mix but that is my only criticism. Love 'Waiting on a Beer'. Good job, come to Texas ! Hell I'll set up a show with you somewhere.

Apr 28 2008 8:54 AM

imbécile thanks you very much for the add!
we love Swell!
all the best to you.

If you're ever playing in Boston, try to make you're way to Keene, NH. Spread the sound!

I saw you years ago in Lille (France) and it was really great. especially the face of the bass player during "hummmmm...shit!"... Try to play again in Lille (Aéronef), i'm the lights man and i'll be very proud to work for you...

Great to find you again. I should probably inform you that I have some nice video footage from your 1991 concert at the Cave in Bergen, Norway.

The fog comes
on little cat feet.

It sits looking
over harbor and city
on silent haunches
and then moves on.

Mar 21 2008 4:40 PM

hey dave ,thanks for sending your new cd...still listening,always will.

Mar 7 2008 2:36 AM

I've just got both of your cd's...sounds great .Nice to have new stuff to listened to bye

Mar 7 2008 2:45 PM

changin any note in your perfect songs would be capitoly criminal indeed...

Mar 5 2008 4:45 PM

bonjour of south of france*
we spend a lot of time listening to you, can you spend a little time to listen to us++give us some feedback please
bonne route

Mar 3 2008 2:12 PM

yeah, the complete emptiness, it seems. or whatever. I just hope that david will come over with Swell to europe one more time, fucking hell. I will promote it again, I always will, with my last penny I will...
people born on january 30th just have to promote Swell, even if it is the wrong day (like last time in Basel, Switzerland: soccer championship party on the same day like Swell live, uuuhhhh). but anyway: there is no hope, there is no glory. but there is music.
like, you know, Swell.
