Ahh shadowy and classy Kristen.... and Tanya looks like the sexiest thing on the planet at that moment. Very good.
Of course, I need to go and listen to their albums now.
Bright Yellow Gun is pretty amazing.
I've never been a big fan of the albums I've heard all the way though, but Big Yellow Gun is one of the other Throwing Muses songs that I like, while Pearl (from Red Heaven) is also rather great.
@PaulGroom, is there a particular album you'd recommend? I think I may have only really heard the Real Romana , Red Heaven and University throughout.
Well it's those first albums which I love, the first album is called 'In A Doghouse' now, it was just Throwing Muses. The other early albums: Hunkpapa, House Tornado and The Fat Skier are all really strong, sometimes awkward, masterpieces.
... if you like this song, then listen to the The Breeders 'Fortunately Gone' which is also breezy, poppy and great.
So that's why I couldn't find the first album on spotify. Seemed odd that it wasn't there. I guess it was reissued as it's showing as released on 1998, to add to the confusion. Thanks; they're all on spotfiy so I'll revisit them soon.
I'm fairly take or leave it about most of the Breeders stuff, but that's one of their songs that I do like (just to be awkward, Head to Toe is my favourite Breeders song, but I'm not sure that's even strictly a Breeders song as Jo Wiggs later released a version with her own band as well so I guess it's not a Kim song). I should give Pod another listen as well. Has been years since I've heard that.
@PaulGroom Seems that I'm particularly amenable to the Breeders today. Enjoyed the two original albums (and EPs from that time) a lot more today than I had for some time.
Crazy...I always though this song was Belly....but I see why I made that mistake....
@PaulGroom I think awkward masterpiece is an apt description for Hunkpapa! My
favourite Throwing Muses record,love the early stuff but then i am quite
