Ms. Shirley Manson

Saturday, 12 December 2009
For the second week in a row, I'm spending the weekend in Edinburgh. Music-wise, the first time I was introduced to Edinburgh was when I started listening to Garbage and noticed their fierce lead vocalist, Edinburgh-born Shirley Manson.

I was so into her, that I made my own version of her skirt during this MTV Beach House performance in 1996 (still think it is amusing they played in such a setting) and paid US$40 (which was worth more back then) to see Garbage live, supporting Alanis Morrisette (who I was NOT a fan of, just to clarify!). Lately, I have been listening to Garbage's debut album and it is still as good as it was back in 1995.

Also, recently Shirley Manson has been back in the spotlight, modeling for Oliver Peoples with Elijah Wood.

Here are a couple of my favourite (and kind of rare) Garbage tracks:

Garbage, #1 Crush (Goth Mix).mp3
Garbage, Lick The Pavement.mp3

And some of the best videos:
Garbage, Stupid Girl
Garbage, Push It
Garbage, Androgyny
