About a year ago, I made the statement that Garbage owes a huge debt of gratitude to Curve. I stand by that statement.
But we're not talking about Curve today. We're talking about Garbage, which started off as a great studio experiment, featured three great producers (Duke Erikson, Steve Marker, Butch Vig) from the American Midwest and an attractive, charismatic female lead vocalist playing fuzzy rock music.
But they became more than that. They became Shirley Manson's band of hitmakers in their own right. That woman has fantastic stage presence. They became identified as musicians, not as producers. And they sound great, don't they?
Even all these years later, they still sound great. And Shirley Manson still has the strong stage presence.
