A lot of sites talk about The Throbs in past tense, but the band still has a very active Myspace page, so I think they are still rocking and willing to play gigs. I've never seen The Throbs live, but I bet it's great fun! The band released The Language of Thieves and Vagabonds (Geffen) in 1991. The album received a rerelease in 2007. I wished I owned a copy of the original pressing. Maybe someday.
Here's "Come Down Sister."
