It’s been awhile since anyone’s seen the Madison, WI neo-grunge rockers, who proudly call themselves… Garbage. Their last record, 2005’s Bleed Like Me, brought some minor critical acclaim and a short stint at commercial success, but it also led to the band’s “indefinite hiatus” — never a great thing to end on. In fact, the last time anyone’s seen Shirley Manson (other than on your bedroom wall when you return to your folk’s place) was probably last year on Fox’s smart yet unsuccessful Terminator series, The Sarah Connor Chronicles. However, Manson’s leaving Hollywood and returning to her Midwestern roots, at least if we’re to take her Facebook seriously.
Yes, Manson’s on the FB, and just after the Grammys, she posted the following:
Guess who I just spent a week in the studio with?
Would you be pleased if I said one of them was called Steve and one of them was called Duke and another was a grammy winning producer?
If you’re familiar with the band, and not just Manson’s short-lived acting career, you’ll know she’s referring to Duke Erikson, Steve Marker and Butch Vig. Too early to tell, but perhaps it’s okay to say: Garbage is back?
We’ll keep you in “the know”, folks.
