Throwing Muses

Throwing Muses

“Sublime riffs and hair-standing-on-end vocals giving you a jolt. Throwing Muses has maintainedthe inimitable ethos that has distinguished their music for over three decades”—Pop MattersPurgatory/Paradiseis the newest release by Throwing Muses, the groundbreaking band whobroke every rule in the book and effortlessly changed the face of alternative music. KristinHersh, David Narcizo and Bernard George have created an epic, thirty-two song event,published as a book and CD combination, with photographs and essays by Kristin—also anacclaimed author—and artwork by David Narcizo. Played as a seriesof movements dovetailinginto a powerful statement, this artful piece outdoes everything in this band’s long, illustriouscareer, proving that Throwing Muses has only peaks, no valleys, and unbelievably, continues tooutdo themselves with every record.Signed to the prestigious British label, 4AD, and Sire/Warner Brothers in the U.S. as teenagers,Hersh quickly realized that she was not interested in playing the game of the corporaterecording industry and traded her first solo record (the highly acclaimedHips and Makers,featuring the hit single, “Your Ghost”) for her band’s freedom. Released from their contractualobligations, Hersh and all of her musical projects—including the inventive, no-holds-barred,noise rock trio, 50FootWave, who pioneered the pay what you want model—are now entirelylistener-supported.“Three shy friends from a little island, freaking the f*** out,” is how Hersh describes her band.“We play because we’re addicted to the noise and because we love each other. We’ve neverstopped playing. Thirty years on a bus together only encouraged us to play more and no onehas told us to shut up yet.”Throwing Muses’ lifelong world tour shows no sign of ending.
