Founded in 1983 by Kristin Hersh and Tanya Donelly, the Throwing Muses spearheaded the U.S. indie rock scene during their short decade of activity. Of a similar ilk to Pixies and The Breeders, they reached a sort of climax in 1991 with The Real Ramona, a third album which would be Donelly’s last as she left to start her own band, Belly… After several breaks and reformations, Hersh brought the Boston cult band back together with David Narcizo, the original drummer, and Bernard Georges, bassist since 1992. Several minutes into Sun Racket it seems that time has frozen still, with the perfect balance between electrical tension and poetic dreaminess. Throwing Muses are as strong as ever, as are their changes of rhythm, psychedelic sparks and Kristin Hersh’s unique vocals. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

And then Nirvana Killed Rock

In 1987, Nirvana was born: the most unexpected punk swerve of the end of the 20th century. A rocketing career, international hits, hordes of fans and a tragic epilogue for this worldwide phenomenon. And what if Kurt Cobain’s band was none other than the last band in the history of rock? The ultimate generational phenomenon of genre, if not its last myth.

The 1000 Faces of Bowie
