Garbage’s Shirley Manson Calls Kanye West A “Twat” In Open Letter

At the Grammys on Sunday night, Kanye made a joke out of threatening to snatch Beck's mic when he won the Album Of The Year trophy for Morning Phase. After the show, Kanye went on the E! Network and said that he really wasn't joking: "Beck needs to respect artistry, and he should’ve… More »

Garbage – “Girls Talk” & “Time Will Destroy Everything”

Though it's been a couple years since their comeback album, Garbage have made a habit of releasing something worthwhile on Record Store Day. Last year they recorded a cover of Patti Smith's "Because The Night" with Screaming Females lead singer Melissa Paternoster, and this year they dropped a single with two unreleased songs. First… More »

Garbage & Screaming Females – “Because The Night” Video

'90s alt-pop professionals Garbage and Jersey basement-punk heroes Screaming Females have an unlikely bond. They toured together last year, and Scremales leader Marissa Paternoster joined Garbage onstage regularly to cover Patti Smith's "Because The Night" (itself the result of an unlikely Smith/Springsteen alliance). Now they've committed that cover to wax, getting together into… More »

Garbage – “Big Bright World” Video

Garbage's comeback album, Not Your Kind Of People, was released back in May; not surprisingly, it was a dynamic, lushly produced, sweeping affair. The clip for new single "Big Bright World," directed by Julie Orser, shares those qualities. Employing gothic images and striking juxtapositions of color scenes against stark black-and-whites, it kind of look… More »

Watch Garbage Play Fallon

On Friday night, the rolling-once-again Garbage stopped by Late Night With Jimmy Fallon to play "Blood For Poppies" and "Automatic Systematic Habit," two pieces of prime '90s industrio-new wave crunch from their new album Not Your Kind Of People. I'm a little bit surprised they didn't pair one of those songs with a web-only… More »

Garbage – “Blood For Poppies” Video

Today, returning alt-pop heroes Garbage, recently reactivated and soon to release their new album Not Your Kind Of People, unveiled the video for their single "Blood For Poppies." It's a grainy black-and-white clip with a lot of tough-to-explain imagery and one grisly Un Chien Andalou-inspired scene in which Manson gets her eyeball sliced… More »

Last month, we reported that '90s alt-pop all-stars Garbage were on their way back with the self-released "Not Your Kind Of People," their first new album since 2005. Now they've posted a quick minute-long preview for their new song "I Hate Love" -- a song title that's only appropriate from the group who made… More »

Garbage Not Your Kind Of People Details, Tour

Garbage were one of the finest singles bands of the '90s alt-pop boom, and they've been generally quiet since releasing 2005's generally underwhelming Bleed Like Me. And now they're getting all set to release a new album. Not Your Kind Of People arrives 5/15 on the band's own unfortunately monikered label STUNVOLUME. And right around… More »

Garbage Plot Reunion LP, Tour

It seems like Garbage never comes up on either critical or nostalgia lists of '90s alt rock bands, even though they had a pretty dynamic lead singer in Shirley Manson, and Butch Vig, a producer associated with many other well-loved '90s alt rock bands. Maybe they'll have a chance to revive their reputation (or create… More »
