"It’s beautiful and substantial, thanks to awesome David Narcizo / Lakuna Design – a chunky, 28 page hardcover booklet and two CDs – one CD consisting of a hand-selected retrospective track-list by Kristin, David and Bernard, and on the other the collected b-sides, including the original Lonely is an Eyesore version of Fish, the long-lost Hillbilly and the original version of Back Road (Matter of Degrees).”
Today marks the release of Anthology, the first ever compilation of work by Throwing Muses.
Coinciding with the 25th anniversary of their debut album release, Anthology was compiled by the band with the 21 track selection eschewed most of the singles in favour of personal favourites, and enjoys a non-chronological sequence which makes for interesting juxtapositions and encourages a reassessment of the music. This very limited release comes in a hardback book with a bonus 22 track CD of B-sides and rarities.
For more on this release, check this post on our sister Beggars Archive site.
The album is available to buy now from all good record stores and from the newly launched 4AD store.
