Throwing Muses

Audio will be available later today.

Jacki talks to Rolling Stone editor Anthony DeCurtis about the new CD by Throwing Muses, "University." DeCurtis says that Throwing Muses was a precursor to the group of young bands led by women that have recently become popular. There are a lot of nonnarrative lyrics in the songs by the bandleader, Kristin Hersh, who uses the voices of her children and the ocean in some of the compositions.
