she's got a hook in her head

Kristin Hersh and Throwing Muses has been one of my favorite musicians since I first heard them in the very early '90s. Something about her music resonated with me in a way that very little other music did. Raw, honest, driving and insistent, and in conflict with itself. (Music, for me, is tension as much as it is flow - sounds that are just flow aren't really music.)

In her recent interview, Ms. Hersh talks about music and madness, and the demon thing that grabs you and doesn't let go until it's instantiated as art.
