Review

A reinvigorated Shirley Manson and Garbage brought the party to the Uptown last night
Jul 11, 2016 - on ThePitch

  1990s alt-rock icons Garbage exploded onto the music scene just over 20 years ago, with an innovative, withering blend of rock and industrial sounds, led by the magnetic Shirley Manson with sounds curated and crafted by guitarists Duke Erikson and Steve Marker, all helmed by producer and drummer Butch Vig (who also produced Nirvana's Nevermind and the Smashing Pumpkins' Siamese Dream, among hundreds of other recordings). While the band somewhat quietly returned from a several-year hiatus in 2012, it is the band's June 2016 release, Strange Little Birds, that is a return to form. Strange Little Birds is by far Garbage's strongest effort in years, and the band's reinvigorated energy was apparent in last-night's appearance at the Uptown. Despite some technical difficulties (which provided ample opportunity for the witty Manson to verbally engage with the audience), Garbage gave the Uptown audience two hours of angsty, driving rock that more than demonstrated that the band is still angry - and very much alive.
   The band started their set cinematically, entirely backlit, with one of its new songs, the dirge-y "Sometimes," before popping into their hits "I Think I'm Paranoid," and an EDM-influenced performance of "Stupid Girl," both of which, somewhat surprisingly, still sound crunchy and fresh, despite being very much associated with the golden age of MTV.
   "Well, well, Kansas City, Missouri," said Manson to an enraptured crowd. "It's been a long time." Manson, who somehow is about to turn 50 (though looks well over a decade younger than that), prowled and pogoed across the stage, to the sharp, tight beats. She wore trademark fishnets and a striped, mod minidress. From the stage, she danced with audience members, occasionally blowing  a kiss or shaking an audience member's hand. Notably absent was Butch Vig, who, Manson explained, has regrettably been sidelined with a sinus infection and is not permitted to fly. Manson noted that Matt Walker, a former drummer for Filter, has "saved our bacon."
   Manson took several opportunities throughout the night to engage the audience, explaining that "The Trick is to Keep Breathing," was written about a friend living in a violent relationship. She also proclaimed that the band is heavily in favor of rights for LGBTQ people, noting that "they still don't have the same rights as me," before performing "Sex is Not the Enemy." Manson donned a rainbow boa for the song, which she draped on her microphone for the rest of the night.
   Technical issues frequently interrupted the band, at times frustrating Manson, who at one point belted "someone tell me what the fuck is going on," to cheers from the audience. She joked after learning that the issue was a glitch in the control pad, that knowing what your problems are makes them much less irritating.
   "When you look under the bed and the monster is not there you feel better," she said, laughing.
Manson's rawness is unusual to see in a performer, and it's refreshing. Her just-beneath-the-surface simmering anger has always been one of her appeals. She owns that power, and last-night's audience ate it up. And yet, while she certainly noticed the technical issues and was distracted by them, it's not likely the audience would have noticed much if she'd not pointed it out. The band sounded tight and well-rehearsed after a month of touring on the new album.
   A clear highlight of the night was the band's performance of "Even Though Our Love is Doomed," from Strange Little Birds. The song begins with a smoldering, muted beat, topped with Manson's bare vocals. The song builds, with the band slowly adding synthesizers and shoegazey guitar lines, until it explodes with streaking guitar lines, crashing symbols and Manson's wail.
The technical issues continued, with Manson's mic even going out during the performance of "Automatic Systemic Habit." Manson gave up trying to fight it. From then on, she seemed to relax.
   "You're all a bunch of perverts," she joked, Scottish accent blazing. "You like to see a little bit of suffering, don't you? You like to see a band doing this for a long time get knocked on their backs?"
   Despite all of the trouble - or perhaps because of it - the show felt intimate, and like an opportunity to witness the band plowing through challenges. Manson, who also told the audience that many of her family members were present, threw herself into the performance. At times, she seemed to be improvising. At the end of "Vox," for example, she added lyrics from Beyonce's "Don't Hurt Me," from Lemonade: when you hurt me, you hurt yourself, don't hurt yourself.
   The evening culminated with frenetic blasts of light and energy, with the entire band fully committing for its three-song encore, which included a brooding performance of "#1 Crush," which showcased Manson at her hungriest and most open. The night was moody, a bit glitchy, a bit nostalgic, but vested in emotion and fun. Garbage and Manson proved themselves to still be a very worthy draw.

Review

Shirley Manson of Garbage recalls band's Wisconsin roots
Jul 6, 2016 - on WISNabc

2016-07-06-usa-milwaukee-summerfest-review-wisn-1  MILWAUKEE —
It wasn't Shirley Manson's first time at Summerfest Wednesday. The lead singer of Garbage took the Harley-Davidson Roadhouse stage that evening alongside her bandmates.
Manson said it's been wild since the band started in Madison and recorded their first four albums in Dairyland.
"This whole state of Wisconsin is engrained in my life and in ways that I couldn't possibly have fathomed 20 years ago, like people obsessed with the Green Bay Packers ... I have to be. My band are diehard fans," Manson explained.
Garbage hit the big time after recording "Only Happy When it Rains" in the nineties.
The group even composed the theme song for the James Bond film, "The World Is Not Enough."
These days, the band is touring a new album and recently performed on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!
Though it's possible to tell Manson hails from Scotland, she is all too familiar with Wisconsin winters.
"It's taxing when you come from a really moderate climate like Scotland, to come her and experience what you guys experience," she said. "You guys are tough, tough."
She had just a few parting words before taking the stage for her show at the Big Gig: "Go Pack, go!"

Garbage – Rock City, Nottingham (Live Review) 
15/06/2016 Thomas Miller Live Review - on VultureHound
Garbage have had an interesting and varied career since they first burst onto the alternative scene in 1995, formed by famed music producer Butch Vig and fronted by Scottish singer Shirley Manson; their debut album the self-titled Garbage sold over 4 million copies and hit Double Platinum in 1996.
Tonight the band finds themselves in deepest darkest Nottingham- Rock City to be precise (no matter how many times I walk through the doors at Rock City I’m reminded of how much I love the place. I’m sure I bang on about it every time I review a band here, I’m not sorry) and Rock City is packed; for some reason Shirley and the boys have only decided to do two UK dates on their new tour, one in London and one in Nottingham. How privileged I am to receive a VIP pass enabling me to watch the first 3 songs up close and personal from the comfort of the photo pit.
Garbage were born from Butch Vig remixing in the early 90s and as the band step on stage to opening track ‘Sometimes’ (also the opening track on the bands new album) the sub bass hit is enough to remind you of this fact, it’s loud, low and heavy. The band step on stage to a huge reaction from the crowd, a crowd that is certainly an eclectic mix. Unfortunately Butch Vig isn’t with the band tonight due to acute sinusitis. When you thought the Rock City crowd couldn’t get louder Shirley Manson steps out and the roof nearly gets blown off. Maybe this crowd is eclectic but one thing’s for sure they are certainly passionate and fired up.
Manson is a front woman of dreams; she is stylish, has a stand out voice, controls the stage and commands respect from fans and peers alike. Age seems to be having no bearing on this woman, she has an aggressive grace that was a very fashionable trait in the 90’s but seems to have made that look, style and attitude timeless. She prowls around her surroundings, circling around the stage like a caged animal, she is simply mesmerising; often staring down the crowd and at points it can feel quite intimidating.
Garbage play a solid set, their sound in this day and age doesn’t sound dated, it sounds unique. Their new album Strange Little Birds has some absolutely fantastic tunes on it that weave seamlessly into a set comprising of music made up from the past 3 decades. This for me was a real stand out gig, a band I have admired since my teens in a venue I adore with a crowd that is totally into it. Nights like this are magical and make me appreciate and feel blessed that I’m a live music fan.
 
Review: Garbage – Rock City, Nottingham – 14 June
Posted by Shannon Watson on 6/24/16 - on GetToTheFront
Garbage may have been around for over 20 years, but they’re still as popular as ever. With a sellout crowd packed into Rock City – Nottingham’s popular music venue – all eagerly waiting to see if their idols have still got it. The answer? A resounding yes!
Hitting the road in support of their latest, sixth studio album, Strange Little Birds, Garbage sounded excellent live, especially with new single, Blackout. As the album was released during the same week, not everyone was familiar with all tracks, but I’m certain next time each individual will be singing the words back to them.
Of course, everyone wanted to hear the classic singles like, Only Happens When It Rains, I Think I’m Paranoid and Stupid Girl – which saw Shirley Manson prowling around the stage like a caged animal, almost snarling down at the audience, which was great to watch. With Shirley as a lead singer, you know you’re onto a winner: a stylish, cracking voice with a little added attitude makes a recipe for success.
Each and every song got a fantastic reception, one of my favourites of the night was Sex Is Not The Enemy. I have only one query for Garbage. Why only the two dates in the UK? Based on your sellout performance, there would be a huge amount of people who would want to see such a great live band – so hurry back!

Garbage: Troxy, London – live review
Written by Anne Johanna15 June, 2016 - on LouderThanWar
Garbage , Troxy, London , 13th June 2016
Garbage bring their blend of perverse pop rock to East London in support of their sixth studio album Strange Little Birds. Words by Anne Johanna. Photos by Svenja Block.
“I don’t give a fuck if somebody who I don’t know and never will meet thinks I’m a piece of shit. I don’t give a flying fuck.” The words that Shirley Manson spoke in an interview for Digital Spy in June of last year sum up the journey that the now 49-year-old Scot has found herself on. Riddled with low self-confidence and body dysmorphic disorder throughout most of Garbage’s multi-million selling career, Manson is finally allowing herself to enjoy the fruits of her labour with well-deserved joy and confidence.
First hearing “Vow” on a random compilation CD in 1994 I was immediately hooked on what was going to be Garbage’s clinical sounding take on trip hoppy alt pop rock, for want of a better term. Then came “Queer” with Manson menacingly prowling the streets in the accompanying black and white video, staring into the camera. That hypnotic track broke the quartet in 1995 and now, 17 million album sales and 20 years later, the sixth album “Strange Little Birds” has been released. Some of the band’s latter albums were received to mixed reactions and to be fair, there has been some fluff amongst their discography. This begs the questions: are Garbage still relevant? Will they appeal to a new generation of music fans and gig goers? Does anyone `give a shit about Garbage anymore?
The gorgeous art deco venue Troxy in East London is bathed in darkness when Garbage open with “Sometimes” from the new record. In true Garbage style it surprises with strings before segueing into a pared down Portishead-like moodiness. It’s a quiet start to the show and the crowd is rather subdued but things soon pick up with the first single off the new album “Empty” which embodies all that is the chart-friendly Garbage – catchy alternative inoffensive pop rock with the unmistakeable Garbage sound. It’s the double of “Special” and “Stupid Girl” that really starts raising the roof and during the latter Manson spices things up with a real punk sneer which gives the hugely popular track some edge missing from the recorded version. The reggae-heavy “Blood for Poppies” from the previous album “Not Your Kind Of People” shows what Garbage are made of. Mixing reggae with heavy grungey guitars and a killer pop chorus sounds pretty terrifying in print but you have to hear it to really get it. Innovative and oh, so Garbage-y.
The vocalist pulls her pale pink hair up into a ponytail and the band launch into the title track from their 2005 album “Bleed Like Me”. “My Lover’s Box” follows and it’s now clear this gig is L-O-U-D. The barrage of guitars and the bass infiltrates every cell in the body. Manson addresses the crowd and in light of the shootings in Orlando dedicates “Sex Is Not The Enemy” to all those who harbour ill feelings towards the LGBT community. “So Like A Rose” from “Beautiful Garbage” gets an airing and it’s something a little bit special as it has not been heard since 2002. The leopard print clad Manson plays the guitar and although looking very much a rock star she manages to walk the tightrope of being just like one of us whilst still being the sassy frontwoman of an incredibly successful band. The chorus of “Control” from “Not Your Kind Of People” sounds huge, like hard industrialised Depeche Mode. “#1 Crush” rates as one of the sultriest records Garbage have ever recorded. This is more like the heavier, grittier original version which was a B-side to “Vow” and “Subhuman” singles rather than the trippy Marius de Vries and Nellee Hooper mixed version for the 1996 film “Romeo & Juliet”. Still the crowd falls silent and watches mesmerised as the pink-haired vixen purrs her way through the song and one can guess there are several males in the audience trying to hide their boners from their girlfriends and wives.
It was disappointing to hear that the mastermind behind Garbage, Butch Vig, would not be performing on the first leg of the tour due to acute sinusitis and doctor’s orders to not fly. However, Matt Walker (Smashing Pumpkins, Morrissey) who already filled in for Vig on the Garbage tour in 2002 has stepped in. When introducing her band mates Duke Erikson and Steve Marker on guitars and Eric Avery (Jane’s Addiction) on bass, Manson applauds Garbage’s 20 year friendship with Walker and follows up with “Automatic Systematic Habit” – Butch Vig’s favourite track from “Not Your Kind Of People”. Again, Garbage manage to mix things up a bit and the chandeliers in the ceiling are blasted with an electro track that wouldn’t be out of place at a modernised version of Studio 54.
Following the chilled out “The Trick Is To Keep Breathing” Manson confesses to the crowd that playing in London makes her so nervous she always arrives into town “with a weird, worried attitude and ends up spending a lot of time on the toilet”. She says more than once with a multitude of swear words how grateful Garbage are for the fans’ support through the years. Manson is notorious for her no bullshit attitude and having no qualms about addressing bad behaviour from the crowd but tonight at Troxy there is no need for that. The audience is, not surprisingly, more on the mature side as is the band, and the most raucous things get is loud singalongs and a bit of jumping up and down during the biggest hits.
“Blackout” from the oven-hot release “Strange Little Birds” is somewhat Cure-like and it’s a million miles away from the poppiness of “Empty”. “Push It” gets a massive singalong but the band sound so loud it’s rearranging my insides and my ears are the most painful they have possibly ever been at a gig. “Vow” follows and it’s a great moment to witness these veterans of transatlantic rock to play the song that started it all for them all those years ago. Despite Manson self-beratingly confessing to softening up a bit, she shows she still has the venom of her 28-year-old self in her – and thank heavens for that. After three encores and two solid hours of music, Garbage are done.
Always a bit left-field, that is Garbage. The foursome have the knack of mixing killer pop hooks, trip hop laced rock and almost any other genre under the sun all the while keeping to that super-shiny production. I must say that at times over the years I have thought of the band as a poor man’s Curve (a superb British electro band from the 90s). But, despite some chart-friendly smash hits Garbage have always been dark – if not musically, then lyrically. Shirley Manson has more brain than most females in the public eye and one would wish more young women in today’s world were encouraged to look upon Manson as a role model. Outspoken and honest with proverbial balls of steel and, in particular, a living embodiment of winning over her own insecurities, she breaks the mold amongst the phoniness of the plastic barbie dolls out there.
Truth be told I wasn’t expecting much from the gig tonight, but it turned out to be an entertaining, fun and career-spanning show. I was wary of Garbage having turned into a bunch of 90s has-beens desperate to cash in for their retirement before it’s too late. I eat my preconceptions with salt and pepper, for the set list was a perfect balance of new and old, hits and album tracks and although Garbage will always be more of a Shirley and The Blokes kind of a band, they sounded superb and with a firecracker such as Manson at the forefront, they are still as relevant as ever.

Live: Garbage @ Troxy

“Twenty years we’ve been coming to London and every time we have, I’ve spent the whole day on the toilet, being so neurotic, because I feel like we come from the United Kingdom.” Now that’s some statement from an ever present and seemingly unflappable frontwoman that makes you think twice about a band that come across as so strong and confident that a show at London’s Troxy venue should be a walk in the park.
Playing their first headline show since the release of sixth studio album Strange Little Birds just last week, Scottish-American electronic rockers Garbage hit up the East London venue for a proper outing of their latest release alongside a good selection from their extensive back catalogue following last year’s 20 Years Queer tour, which celebrated the 20th anniversary of their eponymous hit debut LP.
Comprised of singer and guitarist Shirley Manson, bass player Duke Erikson, guitarist Steve Marker and drummer Butch Vig, the group made waves in the late nineties with their first two albums during a period where American grunge music was fading into alternative rock and Britpop was at its height. But tonight’s show was played without Vig in-tow, the drummer sitting out the group’s European dates on doctor’s orders and replaced by Smashing Pumpkins and Morrissey drummer Matt Walker. The touring line-up is rounded out by former Jane’s Addiction bass player Eric Avery, that band themselves playing a show across town at Kentish Town’s Forum venue tonight.
Appearing on the East London stage encased in shadows, the five-piece kicked off with brief Strange Little Birds opener Sometimes, frontwoman Shirley Manson, dressed in a leopard-print outfit and trading her signature fiery red hair for a bottled pink, hugging a matching leopard-print microphone stand for the sombre and sparsely instrumented tune, singing “sometimes I’d rather take a beating, sometimes I’d rather take a punch”. Song number two from the new record was next, Empty stepping things up and getting the crowd bouncing along.
The unfamiliar new material certainly served as a warm up ahead of the band’s biggest hit, 1996 single Stupid Girl riling the entire audience of the 2,600-capacity venue with its signature rhythm, nicked from The Clash‘s 1980 hit Train In Vain. Manson made the most of the former Art Deco cinema’s stage, spinning about, stepping up onto the speakers (not monitors) lining the stage edge and and leering at the crowd. Version 2.0’s Special continued the hit parade, the upbeat 1998 single encouraging noticeable audience participation with 2012’s Blood For Poppies continuing the tempo.
“Thank you London” the 49-year-old frontwoman said in her broad Edinburgh accent, addressing the crowd for the first time. “I can’t quite believe we’re here so soon after the last tour, it’s a treat for us and it’s fantastic to be back here at the Troxy.” Dedicating fourth album title track Bleed Like Me to the persistent Garbage fans, the quintet broke into the slow start to 2005 single, the group’s signature dance-influenced rhythm underpinning an otherwise slow rock song.
Making a reference to the band’s strong LGBT community following and support, Manson took some time out to reflect on the recent atrocity in Orlando saying: “We have always made a point to speak whenever people we love get attacked.” “The Situation is more complex than I could possibly fathom” she continued. “So this song goes out to whoever is out there who means ill to the LGBT community, anyone who’s ever muttered a homophobic slur” ahead of Bleed Like Me cut Sex Is Not The Enemy.
Slow Beautiful Garbage song So Like A Rose was dedicated to British celebrity photographer Matt Irwin who sadly took his own life in May this year, “this one’s for you baby” Mason dedicated, strapping on a guitar. Version 2.0’s I Think I’m Paranoid kicked the show into the next gear, the 1998 single still sounding fresh some 18 years after it first came out and enticing even those at the back of the venue to turn back towards the stage and rock along which Manson pointing her mic out to the crowd, handing over vocal duties for sections of the top-ten single.
Acknowledging the absence of Garbage co-founder Butch Vig, the sassy frontwoman said “I want to give a big shout out to Butch who’s stuck at home in Los Angeles. If it was me, I’d literally be chewing the flesh off my bones.” The otherworldly-sounding Automatic Systematic Habit was dedicated to the missing Vig, the pop-rock single described by Manson as his favourite cut from Not Your Kind of People featuring live vocoder effects from the frontwoman.
Downbeat Version 6.0 track Blackout’s origins were described as coming from a request to write a song for a vampire movie, only the third new album song of the night before Version 2.0’s Push It and the band’s debut single Vow upped the tempo once more, leading into main set closer Only Happy When It Rains, the 1995 single featuring a re-worked down-tempo first quarter.
An encore of dark and downbeat new album track Even Though Our Love Is Doomed followed by Bleed Like Me cut Why Do You Love Me is rounded out with 2002 single Cherry Lips, it’s chant-along “go baby go” letting the audience depart the venue having sung their hearts out while bouncing along to the fun pop stylings of this long-lasting rock band.
With a styling that spreads their rock roots across a variety of genres including trip-hop, techno and grunge to result in a surprisingly radio-friendly fare, Strange Little Birds takes our journey with Garbage full-circle with a sound so reminiscent of their 1995 debut that it might be interpreted as some sort of pastiche while remaining so fresh that it could easily have been produced by one of the current crop of up and comers making waves on the indie-rock scene.
And it’s easy to see why. Guitarists  Duke Erikson & Steve Marker and drummer Butch Vig are all producers outside of Garbage with Vig famous for producing albums and singles for the likes of Smashing Pumpkins, Nirvana, Green Day, Muse and Foo Fighters and for remixing tracks across a number of musical genres. Meanwhile, frontwoman Shirley Manson has collaborated with Debbie Harry, Gavin Rossdale and Serj Tankian outside of her work with Garbage as well as taking on the role of a liquid metal Terminator facing off against Lena Headey’s Sarah Connor for television series Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.
Garbage play Nottingham’s Rock City before mixing European and American summer festival slots with US headline shows. Strange Little Birds was released on June 10th on Garbage’s own Stunvolume label.
