Throwing Muses - during one incarnation

Last time I posted anything on this band was in November of last year. I said then, as now, Throwing Muses were/are one of my favorite Indie bands to come out of that Post-Punk/Alternative period of the early 80's and have maintained a freshness ever since. Pretty good for a band to be able to do that, and still keep all the integrity in tact. Even though there are now side-projects and solo efforts from front-person Kristen Hersh, the whole concept is still fresh and current and they are about to release a new album this year..

Tonight it's a track off The Real Ramona, their first big-selling album for 4AD (their label in the UK) that came out in 1991. Counting Backwards was also issued as a single and it starts off the album.

If you aren't familiar with them, you have no excuses. If you are, you know what I'm talking about.

Can you help us out?
