shirley manson

remember Garbage? remember shirley manson?

i remember first hearing the song "vow" in 1995 and completely loving it...then i learned that the great line "i can't use what i can't abuse, and i can't stop when it comes to you" was ad-libbed by shirley.

how kick-ass i thought.

thus began my love for one very original and amazing band.

and for one of the coolest chicks ever, who rocks black eyeliner like no ones damn business.

seeing them open for the smashing pumpkins was the cat's pajamas. that show was so fun that paul and i saw them at the palladium two nights in a row on their next tour. looking back, i now realize that those shows at the palladium were in 1998. which means that was 10 years ago. i am old.

shirley is allegedly working on a new album and allegedly collaborates with beck and jack white, although in this interview she doesn't really answer too many questions about it.

so i guess i just wait.

Fun fact:
Garbage's drummer Butch Vig is also a super-producer having worked with Nirvana, Sonic Youth, and the Smashing Pumpkins.

Garbage- I'm Only Happy When It Rains.
