GARBAGE Shares New Song ‘DESTROYING ANGELS’ Written With Legendary L.A. Band X…

New sonic impulses

5 January 2019

GARBAGE just shared, digitally, a song called DESTROYING ANGELS co-written with
Exene Cervenka and John Doe of legendary Los Angeles band X and was released first exclusively on 3000 vinyl copies for ‘Record Store Day: Black Friday‘ last November. It’s
a heartrending song described by Garbage as a murder ballad. The new single’s B-side
is a glowing and gracious cover of David Bowie’s ‘Starman’, taken from a Garbage radio broadcast early last year. Listen to both alluring little pearls right here…

GARBAGE Released Their Glowing Sophomore Album ‘VERSION 2.0’ Twenty Years Ago…

Going back in sonic history looking for memorable albums…

9 May 2018



RELEASED: 11 May 1998 – 20 years ago


Rolling Stone: “The songwriting has improved, but Manson remains the highlight,
her seductive, emotive singing evoking new wave greats and appropriating the band’s
complex sounds into a well-crafted, original rock album”

Spin: “The songs are better developed than on the band’s debut, while showcasing
their passionate, avant-garde sounds and Manson’s personalized yet relatable lyric…”

The Village Voice: “The metallic, discordant music suits Manson’s aggressive
sexuality and allows listeners to experience sadomasochism vicariously through.”

The Age: “Personality loaded” sonic spectacle… the album
salutes the new millennium with futuristic nuance…”

Time:The music is exceptional because of the songs that are
gloomy and sexual yet lively and introspective.”

TURN UP THE VOLUME says: “A turbulent work of mixed emotions and amplified
pop exorcism. Both gloomy and bright, heavy-hearted and elevating, flamboyant
and magnetic with Shirley Manson as the charismatic, outspoken and hypnotizing
femme fatale in the middle of it all.”

THREE TOP TRACKS: I Think I’m Paranoid / Push It / Dumb
