577 Throwing Muses – Throwing Muses

In September of 1986 Throwing Muses released their debut album.

It was the first record by and American group to be released on the British 4AD Label (paving the way for The Pixies just a few years later).
Allmusic review:

“A startling collision of punk energy, folky melodicism, and Kristin Hersh’s mercurial voice and lyrics…puts the work of most self-consciously ‘tortured’ artists to shame.”

Lets talk Throwing Muses, Throwing Muses!

    Just to note that this album *is* on streaming – as the first 10 tracks of the “In a Dog House” compilation. A long time favourite record of mine. Definitely agree on the R.E.M. vibes – kind of Murmur’s evil twin
