Biography

On the day Garbage gathered in Wisconsin to start work on their fourth record, they came up with the glittering and steely "Right Between the Eyes" in all of 30 minutes. Things would not go quite so well with BLEED LIKE ME again.

The band battled illness, surgery, creative disagreements, major life changes and-depending who you ask-either a break-up or a much-needed sabbatical. ... Read more in Amazon's Garbage Store

Product Description

Product Description

GARBAGE Garbage (1995 UK 12-track CD album includes the classic singles Vow Queer Stupid Girl and Milk picture sleeve D31450)

Amazon.co.uk

Set up by Nirvana producer Butch Vig, featuring two veteran session musicians from Madison, Wisconsin and singer Shirley Manson of no-hit-wonder 1980s Scottish band Goodbye Mr Mackenzie, Garbage surprised themselves as much as anyone else when they hit payout with their debut album. Their success made sense, though. Although it's guitar rock, Garbage were plugged into state-of-the-art studio software, generating a cybergoth sound as black, flexible and synthetic as PVC, capable of odd morphing effects to match the plunging mood swings of tracks like "Vow". In the over-cheery mid-1990s, dominated by Britpop and boy bands, songs like "I'm Only Happy When It Rains" were a welcome antidote, while Shirley Manson emerged as the most potent, self-aware and no-nonsense rock frontwoman since Chrissie Hynde, flaunting the darker side of her psyche with the same menacing intent as she flaunted a pink feather boa onstage. --David Stubbs

i remember hearing about this band many years ago and laughing at them purely because they were called garbage and had a song called queer!!

a few years passed and then i bumped into the band again on a tv show and i actually heard them this time and thought myself rather silly for writing them off!!! they are great!!!

this is the sound of a rock band with a great eye for pop melodies. almost all the songs have got some fantastic guitar work in them and yet the vocals are so melodic...and sultry...almost sleazy..but in a good way!

for me the choice songs are queer,vixen,only happy when it rains and the haunting milk.

overall a great album...well worth checking out if you want something with a little bite but then kisses it better after!!

Garbage consist of three American producers (Steve Markes, Duke Erikson and Butch Vig - the latter of Nirvana fame) and the vocal talents of Scottish chanteuse Shirley Manson (supplemented on most tracks here by Mike Kashou on bass). As such, they're something of a supergroup, and indeed, they are a super group.
Their sound, in case you don't know, is quite unique and distinctive. The producers provide keyboards, samples loops and effects, in much the same way as dance records are made, but what they make is definitely a rock album. Over the top of this, come Shirley's sublime vocals, ranging from a melodic caress to (almost) vitriolic shrieks, tending more towards beautiful singing. If I had to compare them to other artists, I'd say they remind me, in parts, of Filter, VAST, Cyclefly and Guano Apes, but as none of these groups are as big as Garbage, that may not help you... (Although you may want to check them out if you like Garbage, all of them have the 'synthetic' musical sound and very good singers)
Butch's Nirvana connections meant the group had no trouble attracting interest. As soon as Shirley launched into 'Vow' (first single, included here) it was obvious that there was more to the band. A feministic assault on a former lover, it perfectly demonstrates Shirley's talents, and is one of the best tracks on the album. She switches with ease from softly sensual to menacing as she sings 'You burned me out but I'm back at your door/ Like Joan of Arc coming back for more/ I came around to tear your little world apart/ And break your soul apart'
This is followed by arguably their best (and certainly biggest) song - 'Stupid Girl'. This is really memorable, and well played on TV and radio, you will know it! In fact, I like it so much I can't believe it took me so long to get the album.

It seems as if Garbage have been around forever. Already their brand of technological rock and cutting lyrics is as familiar as Oasis’ drawl or Stereophonics’ grate, despite their relative lack of success. This is perhaps one of the most underrated albums of the 90s, as the fact is their sound is wholly original and distinctive. The publicity that shrouded Scottish lead singer Shirley Manson could not bury the fact that Garbage churned out countless delightfully accessible angst-ridden tracks. Stupid Girl led the way, but Milk, Vow, Queer and Only Happy When It Rains are all of the highest quality. Depressing and brazen they may be, but with enchanting unique pop such as opener Supervixen, it is certainly captivating.

It happens rarely that you like every song on an album; there's always one or two that you would skip over. However, this is one of those albums where you want to listen to almost every song. Garbage are great here, they are really angst ridden rock (but not in the same whiney way as Alanis or Avril Lavigne so have no fear). For those of you who like quiet angst, Milk is a refreshing break from the heavy anthems and guitars of the other songs. Although it is lighter, it is in keeping with the general theme of the rest of the album and is quite dark.
Their best album is Version 2.0 which is an absolute classic - it is another album where every song is one which you will want to hear.
I think this first album and Version 2.0 were the crowning moments of Garbage's career. Beautiful was really poor and completely different in tone and their latest album, Bleed Like Me seems like an attempt to return to Version 2.0 territory.
If you are new to Garbage, I would try this and Version 2.0 you won't regret it.

It seems that the fates transpired to bring about the members of the band at just the right time at just the right moment and everything fell into place and just worked which is the utter beauty of garbage four Veterans who had slogged long and hard working with other bands came together to create this sonic masterpiece which is truly of its own standing there is an edge and a coolness here that was so out of sync with the other mid nineties bands this is essentially a rock album there are swirling loops electronica and hip hop its not quite one sound or another but it all just works churning out endlessly angsty crashing infectious songs that culminate in a great and unique album that is not like any other now or when first released and i can say that as i first bought this in 2008 at 17 and it sounded so fresh and still so unique an album for any fan of great music but the best song has to be the dark and brooding milk and who doesnt love a rock diva such as miss shirley manson :).
