    Author Information
    Throwing Muses were formed by Kristin Hersh in 1981 and are considered one of the most influential alternative rock bands of the modern era. Their albums include 'The Fat Skier', 'Hunkpapa' and 'The Real Ramona'. Kristin Hersh has also enjoyed a successful solo career, including a Top 10 UK album with 'Hips and Makers' and more recently with her album 'Crooked' which was also released as a book.
    Review quote
    'Hersh still transmits a visionary quality through her songs, her writings only adding to the sense of compulsion 4/5.' MOJO 'Strong return 9/10' UNCUT 'One of the great US alt-rock bands of the 80s and 90s.' GUARDIAN 'One of the most inventive bands of the late-80s.' BBC Music 'They manage to sound quite like nobody else, their songs coiled and complex.' INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY 'A gorgeous standalone object-particularly the writing... Purgatory/Paradise really is unlike anything I've heard this year 8/10' PITCHFORK
