Boomkat Product Review:
'Throwing Muses' features 12 new songs, all written by Kristin Hersh and featuring the ultimate power trio line-up of Kristin Hersh (vocals/guitar), Bernard Georges (bass) and David Narcizo (drums). Former Muse Tanya Donelly (who left the band in 1992 to form Belly) returns to the fold to contribute backing vocals. Throwing Muses originally split in 1997, having released seven studio albums and earned a reputation as one of the most important and influential of American guitar bands. ·'Throwing Muses' was recorded over three weekends in 2002 - Kristin Hersh calls it their 'quick and dirty' record, with 'very few overdubs and no heavy handed mixing'. In other words, Throwing Muses at their rawest and most exciting. ·The initial pressing of the album will be in a special embossed foldout sleeve.
