Ok, a few of you possibly knew about it for a long time, but no one told me! Kristin Hersh has written a biography, somehow finding the time between touring, being a member of many bands, and a mother of many kids!
You can buy it here, I’ve no idea what it’s like, but I always thought she was a lovely story teller, and I loved when she talked at her gigs, and told stories of her odd life! Whether she could hold it together for a full book is unlikely I guess, but you never know. I’m struggling to find it reviewed in any paper or magazine I’d respect, but there’s an interesting review here. It focuses on her 18th year, where she had just started in college, started a band and been diagnosed as bi-polar, so she had a lot going on!
Here’s a lovely version of Sundrops from ’94.
