Garbage : Androgyny

A weak return for the Garbage crew.

So Garbage return after 50 years with Shirley Manson looking a dead ringer fpr Anne Robinson and a song that sounds like thePet Shop Boys‘ ‘What Have I Done To Deserve This?’. “Boys in the girls room,” muses Shirley, “girls in the mens room/You free your mind with your androgyny.” While Brian Molko will shout ‘Yes, that’s right, I’ve been saying the same thing for years’, anyone who is not a Placebo fan (ie everyone else) will just hold their head in their hands, and wonder why Garbage are still bothering. Truly, they are the weakest link.
