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.
