The singer returns home to Scotland to visit her parents and serve her husband his "conjugal rights"...

SHIRLEY MANSON has decided to take a month off recording the new Garbage album so she can return to her native SCOTLAND and “serve my husband his conjugal rights”.

In a regular diary posted on the official Garbage website, [url=], Manson revealed that now, following the recording of the band’s first batch of demos, she will take a break until the end of September. She said: “Only a few more days before I get to up and leave this place! Have I mentioned that I’m returning to Scotland for a month-long respite? I certainly intended to tell you but I guess maybe it slipped my mind. Yes, I’m heading home to visit my parents and serve my husband his conjugal rights!”

The “rough mixes” which the band continue to work on will be taken by Manson to listen to while on her break – her current favourite from the sessions is ‘Piss On Your Parade’.

Garbage are currently working on their third studio album, the follow-up to ‘Version 2.0’. Working titles for tracks cited for inclusion include: ‘Begging Bowl’, ‘Shut Your Mouth’, ‘Use Me’, ‘Over A Cup Of Coffee’, ‘Walking On Shells’, ‘Silence Is Golden’ and ‘So Like A Rose’.
