Soundstage is proud to present Garbage. Filmed live at
WTTW’s studio in Chicago, their set includes select songs
from their repertoire – ranging from its impressive mega-hits
to fan favorites.
Garbage was formed in 1993 by consummate producer/drummer Butch
Vig and producers/multi-instrumentalists Steve Marker and Duke Erickson.
One year later they added the beguiling and sultry Shirley Manson
to front the band. Garbage is one of the most respected groups of
the ‘90s alterna-scene and its trademark sound aptly marries
electronic loops with rock ‘n’ roll. The band’s
unique style spurred many other bands to follow suit throughout
the 90’s. The new millennium saw two new Garbage albums, 2001’s
refined Beautiful Garbage and the long-awaited rocker,
2005’s Bleed Like Me.
The band’s appearance on Soundstage includes many of their
early hits like “Queer,” “Only Happy When it Rains”
and “Stupid Girl,” along with selections from their
latest offering, including the funky “Shut Your Mouth”
and stellar songs like “Why Do You Love Me,” the trip-hoppy
“Metal Heart” and the catchy rock of “Sex Is Not
