In an era where ‘90s nostalgia has reached new heights, the true culture of the decade often gets lost in a sea of flannels, chokers and “What Kids These Days Don’t Get” listicles. Of course, a resurgence is natural as fashion trends cycle  around and the aging youth begins to long for their past, but the Internet has transformed a decade full of culture-shifting discoveries into something you can purchase online. Enter Shirley Manson: the iconic singer of infamous ‘90s grunge rock group, Garbage. Now 50 years old, the pink-haired frontwoman has reemerged with a new album in tow, one which reintroduces the true spirit of the time.

“I do think there is a lot of love for the generation—my generation—who emerged in the ‘90s at a time when the alternative culture was really dominating the extreme culture,” she tells me over the phone, a hint of amusement in her voice.

As Garbage sets out on tour with their record, Strange Little Birds, they’ve realized that their fan-base, present company included, has not only remained loyal, but has grown. “We enjoyed a No. 1 rock record with this album, and that literally feels like a miracle. Particularly for a woman of my age—and I could count on my digits how many women have been able to do that—it’s really unusual,” Manson shares. “It’s very difficult to hold onto an audience these days because there’s always something new to listen to, there’s always someone new to fall in love with.”

As she looked out into the faces of the crowds who attended her west coast tour this past year, the singer saw something she didn’t expect: young people.

“I think that’s one of the things that has struck us the most on this tour is, all of a sudden, there’s a whole new generation of very young women competing at the front of the gates. You don’t want to be stuck in your own world. You always want to be stretching a hand out across a dark sea and hope that you can connect with a new ear, a fresh ear, of people who put perspective to the field across generations and, again, that’s really powerful and inspiring,” she shares.

As you can tell from her particular penchant toward the women in her audience, Manson is famously feminist in an unapologetic, no-holds-barred way. Recently, she made a shocking revelation to Billboard about her experience with sexual assault at age 14, something which has certainly framed the way she looks at our patriarchal society.

Her new fan-base has given her a renewed responsibility towards speaking her mind about it: “As I have gotten older and older, I’ve become more and more passionate about women and their role in our culture. I realize how we have allowed ourselves to be disempowered and disengaged. And I have also noticed, as I’ve gotten older myself, so many of my peers give up because they’re no longer seen as a sex symbol or a sex object.”

Since the beginning of her career, Manson has fought against the idea that sexuality is a commodity, especially when it overshadows talent. It’s a theme that has come through her music and her performances since 1995. She explains, “I think a lot of people just want to be famous, or they want to entertain, but I think there is a real opportunity for musicians who are interested in being [a part of the] counterculture. My focus is usually on young women artists because that’s who I’m invested in, but I think it goes for male artists too.”

She advises women in entertainment to be themselves and not succumb to the pressures of the pop world. “If you continue to play the traditional game, you’ll drown,” Manson muses. “Every woman seems to be interested in only being perceived as pretty, or only being perceived as popular, and until women reject that notion, they’ll continue to be part of a lineage of women who only get five minutes of fame.”

As a 20-something woman that only knows the ‘90s through watching my older sister over-tweeze her eyebrows, the underexposed time before the Internet and selfies is lost on me. I can’t help but think that not caring about “being pretty” is a great concept, but unbelievably difficult in practice. I also can’t imagine what someone in the spotlight must feel, particularly as they grow older.

“I didn’t say it was easy,” she tells me. “It’s painful and it’s depressing and you feel rejected, and dejected. Interestingly enough, a lot of people on our social media platform who criticize my appearance are mostly women. 99.9 percent of any negative criticism I endure comes from other women.”

Whether it’s feminism, music or culture, Manson’s perspective is one of an outsider. While our conversation occurs prior to Kim Kardashian’s now-infamous Paris robbery, Manson brings up something surprisingly relevant about pop culture, glamorization and the responsibility that many people struggle with, just as our collective news-feeds flood with information on the unfortunate incident.

“I really am at odd with popular culture for the most part,” the artist claims. “When I see people on social media boasting about their fur coat, or their fast cars, or all the money they have in the bank, I genuinely feel repulsed. I have traveled to India and I see children living on top of garbage, with no parents around and they’re working at the age of four years old. I understand that there are women in the Middle East that are forced to stay inside during the daylight hours so that they are not considered indecent, and I know that there are young women in Africa that are forced to endure genital mutilation. I know there are so many people who are so unlucky in this life.”

Thus, Manson’s return couldn’t have come at a better moment. We are living in a time that is so inundated with escapism that it seems like we’ve lost touch with reality. Even celebrities who are “totally themselves” often have an air of being contrived. Garbage’s frontwoman, however, has remained steadfast in her convictions.

“I was viewed as a sex symbol and I fought against it, I didn’t take my clothes off,” she recalls of her early days in the business. “I was asked to pose for Playboy and Penthouse and I rejected it, and I rejected the money involved that I had been offered. I just refused to allow myself, through my own vanity, to be lured into a cage. Because a woman’s sexuality is the most important power in the entire universe.” Arguably, posing for a sexy magazine shoot or taking your clothes off can be seen as powerful for many women, but Manson’s point is valid and personal. In fact, speaking up against the pressures of society without being prompted by a slew of online comments is almost revolutionary.

For fans of Garbage, old and new, both Manson and her band’s most recent record are refreshing additions to the current state of music.

“When I was younger, I just really wanted to make a noise show,” the singer tells me. “But as I have gotten older and I realized I have the ability to make people feel better, once I sort of figured that out, it’s become a great pleasure and joy to get up onstage and really work at putting joy onto other people’s faces, and when I see that happen, that fills me up in ways that I have been unable to fill myself up with any other sort of walk of life.”

As a whole, Manson’s return to the stage is a power move for women, for rock n’ roll, and for an ageist society. She wants to make people uncomfortable and give them an alternative way of thinking, the same way she did in the decade that gave her a voice. With this attitude, she has found her true strength.

“I think my power comes from striving to be a good artist, a truthful artist,” she says. “I’ve never been one who wants to be told I look pretty. I want to look powerful.”

Compteur: 1000 visiteurs

Pour ses six mois d'existence, le blog atteint à ce jour un compteur de 1000 visites. Ce qui est plutôt honorable car le groupe Garbage, bien qu'installé dans la musique rock depuis plus de 20 ans, reste encore malgré tout un groupe peu médiatisé en France à part certaines stations de radios rock et de fans de la première heure. Alors merci à celles et ceux qui viennent souvent, de temps ou temps ou régulièrement découvrir ou redécouvrir Garbage.

Garbage: Dog New Tricks

Garbage Album


1995 
Dogs New Tricks
chanson n°9 de l'album


Enregistrement: La chanson a été écrite et enregistrée par les quatre membres du groupe, dans leur propre studio d'enregistrement (les Smart Studios à Madison, dans le Wisconsin) en même temps que les autres titres de leur premier album, entre avril 1994 et mai 1995.

Paroles
I wish I had not woke up today
Everyone mistakes the things you say
Take the simple truth and
Twist it all around
Make it sound important
Make it seem profound

Dog new tricks
Nothing you learn will stick
Dog new tricks
You make me feel so worthless

Everyone I know has gone away
Died or left or just forgot to stay
Sometimes took for granted
Sometimes turned away
Sometimes didn't say what
I meant to say

Dog new tricks
Nothing you learn will stick
Dog new tricks
You make me feel so worthless

Nothing you learn
Nothing you learn
Nothing you learn
Nothing you learn

I never would have pegged you
For what you have become
Everyone lies
Everyone cheats
Not like you done

Dog new tricks
Nothing you learn will stick
Nothing will stick
Dog new tricks
You make me feel so worthless
Nothing will stick

Nothing you learn
Nothing you learn
Nothing you learn
Nothing you learn

Traduction
Je regrette de m'être réveillée aujourd'hui
Tout le monde se trompe sur ce que tu dis
Prends la simple vérité et
Enroules-la tout autour
Fais-la sonner importante
Fais-la paraître profonde

 Poursuis de nouveaux tours
Rien de ce que tu apprends ne restera
Poursuis de nouveaux tours
Tu me fais me sentir si nulle

  Tout ceux que je connais s'en sont allés
sont mort ou sont partis ou ont juste oublié de rester 
Parfois ils considéraient comme acquis
Parfois ils détournaient les yeux
Parfois ils ne disaient pas ce que
J'étais censée dire

 Poursuis de nouveaux tours
Rien de ce que tu apprends ne restera
Poursuis de nouveaux tours
Tu me fais me sentir si nulle

Rien de ce que tu apprends
Rien de ce que tu apprends
Rien de ce que tu apprends
Rien de ce que tu apprends

 Je ne t'aurais jamais stabilisé
Dans ce que tu es devenu
Tout le monde ment
Tout le monde triche
Pas comme tu le fais

 Poursuis de nouveaux tours
Rien de ce que tu apprends ne restera
Poursuis de nouveaux tours
Tu me fais me sentir si nulle

Poursuis de nouveaux tours
Rien de ce que tu apprends ne restera
Rien ne restera
Poursuis de nouveaux tours
Tu me fais me sentir si nulle
Rien ne restera 

Rien de ce que tu apprends
Rien de ce que tu apprends
Rien de ce que tu apprends
Rien de ce que tu apprends

Garbage: A Stroke Of Luck

Garbage Album


1995 
A Stroke Of Luck
chanson n°6 de l'album


Enregistrement: La chanson a été écrite et enregistrée par les quatre membres du groupe, dans leur propre studio d'enregistrement (les Smart Studios à Madison, dans le Wisconsin) en même temps que les autres titres de leur premier album, entre avril 1994 et mai 1995.

Paroles
Hanged by threads of palest silver
I could have stayed that way forever
Bad blood and ghosts wrapped tight around me
Nothing could ever seem to touch me

I lose what I love most
Did you know I was lost until you found me ?

A stroke of luck or a gift from God ?
The hand of fate or devil's claws ?
From below or saints above ?
You came to me

Here comes the cold again
I feel it closing in
It's falling down and
All around me falling

You say that you'll be there to catch me
Or will you only try to trap me
These are the rules I make
Our chains were meant to break
You'll never change me

Here comes the cold again
I feel it closing in
You're falling down and
All around me falling

A stroke of luck or a gift from God ?
The hand of fate or devil's claws ?
From below or saints above ?
You came to me

Don't ask me why
Don't even try

A stroke of luck or a gift from God ?
The hand of fate or devil's claws ?
From below or saints above ?
You came to me

Here comes the cold again
I feel it closing in
It's falling down and
All around me falling

Falling, falling
Falling, falling
Falling, falling

Traduction
Pendue par des fils en argent le plus pâle
J'aurais pu rester ainsi pour l'éternité
Mauvais sangs et fantômes m'ont enveloppé étroitement
Rien ne semblait pouvoir m'atteindre

Je perds ce qui m'est le plus cher
Savais-tu que j'étais perdue jusqu'à ce que tu me trouves ?

 Un coup de chance ou un cadeau de Dieu ?
De la main du destin ou des griffes du diable ?
Des enfers ou de la providence ?
Tu es venu à moi

Voilà que le froid revient
Je le sens se rapprocher
Ca tombe et
 Tout autour du moi tombe

 Tu dis que tu seras là pour me rattraper
Ou est-ce que tu vas seulement me piéger
Ce sont les règles que j'ai instauré
Nos chaînes étaient faites pour se briser
Tu ne me changeras jamais

 Voilà que le froid revient
Je le sens se rapprocher
Tu tombes et
Tout autour de moi tombe

  Un coup de chance ou un cadeau de Dieu ?
De la main du destin ou des griffes du diable ?
Des enfers ou de la providence ?
Tu es venu à moi

 Ne me demandes pas pourquoi
 N'essaye même pas

  Un coup de chance ou un cadeau de Dieu ?
De la main du destin ou des griffes du diable ?
Des enfers ou de la providence ?
Tu es venu à moi


Voilà que le froid revient
Je le sens se rapprocher
Ca tombe et
Tout autour de moi tombe

Tombe, tombe
Tombe, tombe
Tombe, tombe
