She was among the alternative / indie rock era’s most identifiable and inventive bassists during her six year membership in Throwing Muses. Whereas most post-punk players traveled a limited roots-only route, Leslie Langston was a dexterous, melodic player who anchored Kristin Hersh and Tanya Donelly’s compositions with passages that exuded funk and soul influences. Retired from the music biz, nowadays Leslie is an independent clinical social worker.

Dig Leslie on these three tracks from Hunkpapa, waxed in 1989.
