Purgatory/Paradise is a revolutionary fusion of music and text from seminal indie rock band Throwing Muses.

Kristin Hersh, Throwing Muses’s lead singer/songwriter, is one of the most well-respected musicians to emerge from the 1980s indie rock scene. Her work has influenced artists such as Cat Power, Alanis Morrissette, Lush, and Sleater-Kinney, as well as Riot Grrrls everywhere.

Ten years in the making, Hersh and Throwing Muses’s 32-track album Purgatory/Paradise is the centerpiece of this deluxe 64-page book which also contains more than two dozen photographs and artwork by Kristin Hersh and band member Dave Narcizo; lyrics for each song; stories and essays that accompany each track written by Hersh; and instructions for downloads of exclusive content, including demos and outtakes.
