Number 904 - Garbage


Number 904

Garbage

"Only Happy When It Rains"

(1995)
.
.
Genre:Alt Rock
Another favourite Genre! Things are looking up for me. Garbage were a breath of fresh air in the mid '90s. Grunge was taking hold everywhere around the world and Rap was only in its post natal years.
"Garbage's angry, emotional lyrics contrasted with their catchy, pop alternative rock music. Garbage utilizes samples, electronic loops, grungy guitars, and various other effects to produce haunting and melodic tracks, made distinctive by Scottish singer Shirley Manson's sultry vocals. The fact that Garbage is composed of three music producers is made obvious by the high production quality, with many layers and a "wall of sound" production aesthetic.
Known publicly as an experimental group like Brit band
Radiohead, Garbage used their powerful videos to distort the dimensions of their songs."
Along with Smashing Pumpkins, Radiohead, , et el, made the mid nineties a great place to be musically. One hopes Alt Rock will be a force again in the millennium, because between you and me, its getting a bit boring at the moment aye Nelly?
