Get ready for Garbage

Garbage is one of the most important bands from the 1990s. They’re coming to Madrid to play in the Mad Cook Festival.

The band formed when Butch Vig joined producers Steve Marker and Duke Erikson, who had collaborated in albums such as Nirvana’s Nevermind and Smashing Pumpkins’ Siamese Dream. They called singer Shirley Manson after seeing her on MTV. They use samplers, electronic loops and guitars with anger lyrics sang with Shirley’s sensual Scottish voice. Though it’s more like 1990s grunge, their music has a high-quality production.
