Purgatory/Paradise by Throwing Muses on Fire Records

Throwing Muses - Purgatory/Paradise

FIRE RECORDS

  • £24.99


Originally released in 2013, and not issued on vinyl until now, Purgatory/Paradise emerged after a ten year hiatus and is a formidable 32-track opus of tangible bliss.

Devised as a book with essays by Kristin Hersh with art by drummer Dave Narcizo, it’s a fractured album about loss; most tracks are short, broken, some are even reprises. Everything is tentative with memories listed in order of disappearance, including Hersh’s house being by hurricane Katrina, the loss of close friends, and the band’s first break up.
