Throwing Muses “Limbo” CD (1996)
Details: Throwing Muses 1996 album, "Limbo," featuring the artwork of Gilberto Hernandez (Love And Rockets graphic novel/comic books). Used CD, NM.
Description: From 4AD, "Throwing Muses' various styles meshed to thrilling effect on fourth album The Real Ramona, which was released in March 1991 and saw Fred Abong succeeding Leslie on bass. Tanya left the band a a year later, helping Kim Deal launch The Breeders before finding stardom with her own group Belly, who also briefly featured Fred. Throwing Muses continued as a three-piece, Kristin and David being temporarily rejoined by Leslie for 1992's Red Heaven, which included a duet (‘Dio’) with Hüsker Dü/Sugar frontman Bob Mould. Throwing Muses returned in January '95 with their sixth album University and new bassist Bernard Georges, who also played on the following year's Limbo. Both records were execellent, but critical acclaim was not matched by sales and the trio reluctantly disbanded in 1997, Kristin stating that her beloved group was no longer financially viable. The following year saw the release of two solo records, Strange Angels and the limited edition, mail-order release Murder, Misery And Then Goodnight. In August '98 came the two-disc In A Doghouse compilation, which brought together the band's debut album, the Chains Changed EP, The Doghouse Cassette demos and five brand new re-recordings of previously unheard, pre-4AD material. Kristin surprised her devoted fanbase in the new millenium by creating the 'Gut Pageant', a special event where the audience would travel to a venue to see the band play, as well as see a couple of Kristin's solo sets. This led to new Muses material and a thrillingly raucous self-titled album, issued in March 2003 in tandem with Kristin's sixth, wholly acoustic solo set The Grotto. Never one to rest on her laurels, she also formed the blistering power-trio 50 Foot Wave, with Bernard and drummer Rob Ahlers."
