SHIRLEY MANSON has said that recording the third GARBAGE album was the first time she really felt part of the band.
Speaking in the current issue of Q magazine, the Garbage vocalist said that upto the work on the band’s new album ‘Beautifulgarbage’, released October 1, she considered herself “lucky” to be part of the group.
She said: “All the songs (on the new record) mean something to me and that’s the first time I’ve been able to say that. I was always embarrassed about my role in the band. I felt lucky. The men in the band had an incredible past and I hadn’t. I was just some loser from Scotland who was in a band that everyone laughed about.
“I was very insecure but when we came to make this record, I realised I had something the band didn’t have, something they needed from me, and it was a huge breakthrough moment for me.”
Garbage are planning to tour following the release of the album.
