Main description:

Purgatory/Paradise is a revolutionary fusion of music and text from seminal indie rock band Throwing Muses.

Kristin Hersh, Throwing Muses’s lead singer/songwriter, is one of the most well-respected musicians to emerge from the 1980s indie rock scene. Her work has influenced artists such as Cat Power, Alanis Morrissette, Lush, and Sleater-Kinney, as well as Riot Grrrls everywhere.

Ten years in the making, Hersh and Throwing Muses’s 32-track album Purgatory/Paradise is the centerpiece of this deluxe 64-page book which also contains more than two dozen photographs and artwork by Kristin Hersh and band member Dave Narcizo; lyrics for each song; stories and essays that accompany each track written by Hersh; and instructions for downloads of exclusive content, including demos and outtakes.

Review quote:

“A thoroughly engrossing work by an original voice-hopefully the first of many.”

Review quote:

“An original beauty.”

Review quote:

“Hersh is a fearless rock innovator.”

Review quote:

“One of America’s finest songwriters.”

Review quote:

“Sensitive and emotionally raw... it’s also wildly funny.”

Review quote:

“With its reined in plot line and ethereal prose style, Rat Girl reads more like a novel...apleasure to read.”

Review quote:

Praise for Rat Girl:“Hersh has pretty much been to hell and back and lived to tell the tale...extremely well written.”

Review quote:

Praise for Kristin Hersh: “It’s almost impossible to imagine the visceral bleats of singers like Corin Tucker or Marissa Paternoster without Kristin Hersh.”
