Music VIDEO: Throwing Muses Perform ‘Not Too Soon’ Live In Dusseldorf
From the 1991 album The Real Ramona, the song ‘Not Too Soon’ was penned by singer/songwriter Tanya Donelly. She left Throwing Muses shortly thereafter, taking bass player Fred Abong with her, to form the 2-time Grammy-nominated band, Belly. Belly’s debut album, Star, featured the huge radio/Mtv hit ‘Feed the Tree‘.
After Tanya’s departure, Kristin Hersh, the other half of the Throwing Muses singer/songwriter duo, continued onward with Muses drummer David Narcizo, releasing three albums over the proceeding four years, spawning memorable songs like ‘Bright Yellow Gun‘.
Donelly would eventually rejoin with Hersh for Throwing Muses reunion shows, and she contributed backup vocals to songs on Throwing Muses’ 2003 self-titled album.
Here are Throwing Muses, just before Tanya’s 1991 departure, performing their oft-overlooked gem, ‘Not Too Soon’ live:
Watch: The Cars Perform ‘Heartbeat City’ @ Live Aid 1985
Here’s a favorite Cars song of mine — not as recognizable as some of their hits, although it should be. I was in Paris when Live Aid was happening, and my brother and I were watching a rabbit-ear antenna’d static-prone TV set in a hotel — unable to understand the French dialogue between the songs, but nonetheless ecstatic to watch some of our favorite groups perform.
The quality of this video is damned good. For those of you who aren’t familiar with this song, I think you’re really going to like it.
Watch: Roxy Music “Same Old Scene”
Here’s one of my all-time favorites. Each time I hear that intro, it’s like an instant flashback into a different world — namely, my youth.
I was fortunate enough to have seen Bryan Ferry play live around 1989-1990 with my brother — a show I’ll never forget. Fantastic!
From the album Flesh and Blood, here’s ‘Same Old Scene’. Enjoy!:

Watch: Jesus & Mary Chain w/ Hope Sandoval “Sometimes Always” Live – 1994
If you were told The Jesus & Mary Chain were attempting to pen a love song — a duet — this is EXACTLY what you’d hope to get from them. Somehow they managed to incorporate their signature detached (brooding) style — something unheard of in a traditional love song — and yet it works here […]
