Re: Decade

Frankly, there would be too much research involved to follow this up too much further - especially if you broaden it out to classical and jazz composers and also traditional musicians from all over the world (I've yet to hear a bad record that Toumani Diabate has made).

But anyway, I'd say that both Stevie Wonder and Todd Rundgren (solo) bestrode the 1980s like Colossi. Miles Davis also great - and at his most innovative - throughout the 1960s.

I loved seeing her solo live, which I did a number of times. Good guitar player, and when her voice was strong, it was powerful stuff. I've always liked her lyrics too. Around the time of the reformed TM in 2002 or 03, it was a much rawer sound and they played super loud. I saw that tour and my hearing has never been the same! And it seemed to kill her voice. I was also changing in my tastes around then, so lost interest. But still like her older music and like to play it on guitar myself once in a while.


I am very sad that I've never had a chance to see Throwing Muses live. Maybe someday they'll come back to the Chicago area. I saw her live a couple weeks ago, and she's better than ever (IMO). Impressive guitar playing, and lots of funny/interesting talking between songs providing insight into the meaning of her songs. She read excerpts from her book, too. Highly recommended!

This is one of my favourite tracks:




Kristin Hersh without her guitar is just not essential. The original A Loon is much better.

I didn't know her voice was so powerful, only ever heard her softer songs. This one's great

I never thought much about her guitar. Her voice and melodies are what gets me. This one has both. The change midway is quite beautiful.
