For an avid fan of alt-rock veterans ‘Garbage’ the long-awaited announcement of a book being released that covers their 20+ year career was huge news. It’s been often rumoured and never really dismissed, but nothing had been heard of the book in well over a year.
So the news today that the book had not only an official name ’This Is The Noise That Keeps Me Awake’ (a lyric taken from their hit song Push It); but that it’s also been put up for pre-order at all good book retailers like Amazon was a big surprise. The book promises to be a thorough exploration of the band’s career, from their humble beginnings at the legendary Smart Studios in Wisconsin through their rise to Grammy nominated multi-million selling rock stars right up to now, independent darlings of the live arena doing things on their own terms. With full colour pictures and written by the band members themselves, this will surely be a cherished possession of any genuine Garbage fan – such as me!
The book which will be released in hardback is currently pencilled for a July 11 2017 release, and that date can’t come quick enough.
