This is a special big post in honour of Kristin Hersh and Throwing Muses (similar Tanya Donelly post coming up later). The artworks are called: ‘Your Cats Are Pretty Cool’, ‘Muses’, ‘Double Kristin’ and ‘A Shimmer in Your Eye, Son’. All this is part of my Music collection that you can find on Society6.

Throwing Muses- Green

Off their debut album, Throwing Muses (1986)

Some of the most underrated musicians around, the Throwing Muses were the product of step sisters Kristin Hersh and Tanya Donnelly. In 1986, the group’s debut album was put out by the prestigious British label 4AD; Throwing Muses was the first American band to be released on that label. Throwing Muses’ angular, anguished, dark-pop sound had much to do with Hersh’s mental illness. Her unique and raw vocals/rthymm guitar coupled with her sisters lead guitar created a staple of how two guitar indie rock should sound in the 80’s. David Narcizo is a monster drummer who is able to play minimalist better than anyone.

Throwing Muses - Firepile

I’m having a love affair with David Narcizo’s drumming right now. I don’t know if you can actually have a love affair with drumming but there’s definitely something special going on between us.

Count the tires one more time, count the times I let the air out
