9/17/2006 - Fifty Foot Wave


50 Foot Wave took form after the release of Throwing Muses' second self-titled album in 2003. Though the trio did contain two former members of that group -- tireless singer/songwriter/guitarist Kristin Hersh and bassist Bernard Georges -- an effort was made from the beginning to make the separation of the two groups very distinct. Hersh and her bandmates (rounded out by drummer Rob Ahlers) vowed to play around 100 shows a year and release an EP every nine months. The first EP came out in early 2004 and was more direct and hard-hitting than anything Hersh had helped create in the past.
