 Wow, the first album is out of print?! Ryko had a very nice two cd compilation of the first album, Chains Chained, that 4AD comp song and rehersal tapes out a few years ago...a shame, really. That first album changed my life. I think it's the best thing 4AD, the Muses, Hersh, anyone associated with that band has ever relaeased. "Hate My Way" is crushing...even listening to it as a man, far from puberty, married, established in life, etc. It places you right back in the middle of those teenage feelings...Anyway, thanks for the article. I may have to dig up some of the post debut albums and listen to them.

 Don't want to be a dick, but the first Kristin Hersh record is actually called Hips and Makers, just as a point of fact. And that record still makes my stomach hurt when I listen to, and not only because my first girlfriend introduced me to it.

 That comp that jmp123 speaks of is called In A Doghouse, and it is most definitely still in print. You should all go buy it.
