Details of the Throwing Muses Anthology released by 4AD in September have been released over on the Kristin Hersh site. It seems a worthy tribute for one of the most underrated bands ever. released on these shores on September 5th 2011.
The artwork by drummer David Narcizo’s design company Lakuna NOT V23 is great. The band totally deserve the 2 disc treatment, however I’m not entirely sure that it will bring them too many new fans, not that Kristin Hersh will be bothered, she never has courted mainstream success to her merit.
What is great is that the band have picked the songs they love so it’s hard to complain at the omissions. With such an extensive back catalogue it was always going to be difficult to please everyone. Still what’s even more exciting is the news of upcoming live shows to support the release. See below for more details.
