Listening Post



It's definitely a good week for new music from 90s bands. The new Soundgarden single debuted on KROQ just a few minutes ago and I'll likely be able to post it tomorrow morning -- and then there's this: the damn good new song from Garbage.

Here's Blood for Poppies.

Delicious.

Wow, I have no idea what I just watched, but I know that is awesome.

On a slight tangent, I cannot look at Shirley Manson without thinking of a her as a crazy death robot with blade hands.

Naturally, this made her even hotter.

Been with Garbage since the beginning and they're still one of the best club shows I've seen...it's good to see they still have fire!

I always find it difficult to get past the fact that Garbage is a poor man's, watered-down version of Curve. I feel Curve deserved far more success than they ever had in the states, and just as it seemed like they were about to find it, they had to watch Garbage come along and steal their thunder.

Having said that, I do like some of Garbage's songs. This one's not bad.

Dan, it's good see someone else in the world even knows of Curve (Fait Accompli is perhaps one of the best songs in history)! Yes, they completely rock the socks off most of their peers back in the day. That said, I do feel Garbage is also a sock rocker (wow...that doesn't sound right) and due their own place by their own right.

I have a fondness of Garbage that borders on unhealthy, so as you might imagine, this pleases me greatly. Also, this is the first I've heard of Soundgarden putting out something new. Please, Chez. I must have this. You would be filling my feeble, black heart with something approaching joy.

I was always a big fan of Curve. In fact, Hung Up is one of those darkly sexy songs that I wound up playing over and over again while living in a hotel room after 9/11. (I mean that somewhat innocently, but by all means infer what you'd like.) That said, I think there's room in the world for both Curve and Garbage.
