On the 25th anniversary of Throwing Muses debut album release (September 5th 2011), 4AD are issuing the first ever compilation of the bands work, simply entitled Anthology. Compiled by the band, the 21 track selection eschews most of the singles in favour of personal favourites, and enjoys a non-chronological sequence which makes for interesting juxtapositions and encourages a reassessment of the music. The initial, limited release comes in a hardback book with a bonus 22 track CD of B-sides and rarities.
Throwing Muses are an alternative rock band formed in 1981 in Newport, Rhode Island. They toured and recorded extensively until 1997. Originally fronted by two distinctive lead singers, Kristen Hersh and Tanya Donelly, stepsisters who both wrote the group’s songs, Throwing Muses are known for performing music with shifting tempos, creative chord progressions, unorthodox song structures, and surreal lyrics.
