Throwing Muses In-depth Biography

One of the quietly great college bands from the 1980s, Throwing Muses} was formed in 1983 by guitarist/vocalist Kristin Hersh} and her half-sister guitarist/vocalist Tanya Donelly} with a few friends from high school. 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, mercurial sound had much to do with Hersh}'s mental illness (she suffered from a form of bipolarity that caused her to hallucinate), especially on early albums like House Tornado}. 1991's The Real Ramona} marked a break from the heaviness of the previous albums, with lots of shimmery pop} gems penned both by Hersh} and Donelly}, who contributed at least one song per album throughout her stay in the band. Creative tensions between the two songwriters rose until Donelly} left in 1992 to play with the Breeders} and ultimately form Belly}. That year Hersh} re-formed the Muses} with drummer David Narcizo} and released the band's fourth album, Red Heaven}. After that, Hersh} released a solo album and toured extensively, leaving fans to wonder about the status of the Muses}. In 1995, however, Hersh} and the rest of the Muses} (Narcizo} and bassist Bernard Georges}) released University}, one of the band's most cohesive and accessible efforts. University} was followed by Limbo} in 1996. The group's dissolution was announced soon after, with Hersh} continuing on as a solo artist. In a Doghouse}, a collection of rare early Muses} material, followed in 1998. In Spring 2000, the Muses} reunited for a special event called the Gut Pageant, which featured a set from Hersh}, Narcizo}, Bernard Georges}, and Robert Rust}, as well as a solo performance by Hersh}, short films by Narcizo}, and a picnic lunch hosted by the group. During three weekends in 2002, the trio got together to record another album; released the same day in 2003 as Hersh}'s The Grotto}, Throwing Muses} (self-titled, just like their debut) was the group's rawest, loudest album. Donelly} provided background vocals on some of the songs. ~ Heather Phares, All Music Guide
