Swans’ Michael Gira has been accused of rape by former collaborator Larkin Grimm:  Gira Slams “Slanderous Lie” reports Pitchfork.

Grimm alleges Gira sexually assaulted her then later dropped her from his label when she confronted him; Gira reacts: “I will respond vigorously to defend my name against this horrible slur”.


The story was broken on Grimm’s on Facebook page and claims the assault happened in 2008 when she was recording on Gira’s Young God label. Gira has vigorously denied the story on Swans own facebook page today.
