Garbage - 'Not Your Kind Of People'

Garbage - 'Not Your Kind Of People'

It’s fair to say that Garbage have been pissed on, literally and figuratively, in the seven years since their last album, ‘Bleed Like Me’. Yep, after a stint as a cyborg with the ability to morph into, er, urinals in a Terminator TV...

Garbage - 'Blood For Poppies'

Garbage - 'Blood For Poppies'

If only all seven-year itches came with as much squalling feedback and eardrum-bursting goodness as Shirley Manson's, eh? " I've been gone for so long ", she drawls, putting herself back in the game after the band’s long break with some...

Garbage  :  Shut Your Mouth

Garbage : Shut Your Mouth

This is not what we were promised. When Garbage first pitched up in the mid-'90s, they were primed to be a futurist techno-grunge steamroller, sleekly flattening everything in its path with unyieldingly marshall beats and purring guitars. No...

Garbage : Androgyny

Garbage : Androgyny

So Garbage return after 50 years with Shirley Manson looking a dead ringer fpr Anne Robinson and a song that sounds like the Pet Shop Boys ' 'What Have I Done To Deserve This?'. "Boys in the girls room," muses Shirley, "girls in the mens...

London Brixton Academy

London Brixton Academy

Mad Ma Nature, given half a chance, will fill every ecological niche with mad variations on an already insane theme. And pop circa Space 1999 is living proof of this awesome Darwinian truth. Who needs smelly old heavy metal when we've got...
