Off topic: In anticipation of Garbage

Just wanted to put into words just how much I am looking forward to the new album from my favourite band, Garbage.  I have been into this synth/rock four-piece since their inception back in 1995 (I hope that’s right), hearing their classic single ‘Queer’ on The Evening Session on Radio 1.  Following that revelation, I rushed out to purchase their debut self-titled album, and have never looked back.  The band consist of drummer and super-producer Butch Vig, as well as musicians Duke Erikson and Steve Marker.  Their lead single is the indefinable Shirley Manson.

After roughly a five year extended hiatus, where I did fear the band would call it a day, they have been back in the studio and are currently recording their fifth as yet untitled album.  Shirley Manson has kept her fans up-to-date on all Garbage related goings on, on her FACEBOOK page, which is awfully good of her, and the growing anticipation amongst her dedicated fan base is now reaching fever pitch.  The band have not really put a foot wrong in the 10-15 years they have been together (in my opinion), and although constant touring and being around each other took its tol, and they all went in search of their own projects (Butch working as producer for the likes of Green Day amongst other things, Shirley appearing in TV show Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles and recording a solo album, which sadly hasn’t yet been released) … they seem as commited as ever to being in a band and making interesting, unique music that sets them apart from others.

Long live GARBAGE!
