Tel Aviv gears up to take out the Garbage

The Jerusalem Post - - ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT - • Jerusalem Post staff

The quar­tet hail­ing from Madi­son, Wis­con­sin of Shirley Man­son, Duke Erik­son, Steve Marker and Butch Vig bet­ter known as the band Garbage will be per­form­ing at Ris­hon Lezion Am­phithe­ater on Au­gust 16.

The Scot­tish-Amer­i­can al­ter­na­tive rock band re­leased their self-ti­tled de­but al­bum in 1995 and rode a wave of vis­ually ar­rest­ing, fe­male-fronted al­ter­na­tive rock bands. The al­bum spawned the hit sin­gles “Stupid Girl” and “Only Happy When It Rains.”

Their fol­low up al­bum, Ver­sion 2.0, re­leased in 1998, topped charts all over the world and gar­nered mul­ti­ple Grammy Award nom­i­na­tions in­clud­ing Al­bum Of The Year. Garbage fol­lowed this up by per­form­ing and co-pro­duc­ing the theme song to the 19th James Bond movie The World Is Not Enough.

The band went on to re­lease two more al­bums: 2001’s Beau­ti­ful Garbage and 2005’s Bleed Like Me, the lat­ter of which earned Garbage its high­est chart po­si­tion (No. 4) on the Bill­board Top 200 Al­bum Chart.

Garbage are set to re­lease its sixth al­bum, Strange Lit­tle Birds, in June, ahead of its in­ter­na­tional tour.
