Wigwam have the rare distinction of being the only '70s band from Finland to have made any impact outside the country, as well as being an incubator for the country's top prog musicians – the only catch was that the anticipated massive breakthrough never happened…
Beautiful Garbage (also typeset beautifulgarbage) is the third album by alternative rock group Garbage. The album was released worldwide in October 2001 by Mushroom Records UK and in North America by Interscope and was the followup to the band's Grammy-nominated Version 2.0. Marking a departure from the sound Garbage had established on their first two records, Beautiful Garbage was written and recorded over the course of a year, during which time lead singer Shirley Manson chronicled their efforts weekly online, becoming one of the first high-profile musicians to keep an internet blog. The album is marked by expanding on the musical variety, with stronger melodies, more direct lyrics, and sounds that mix rock with electronica, new wave, hip hop and girl groups. The album's title is taken directly from a lyric in the song "Celebrity Skin" by Hole.
Garbage have released One Mile High…Live on DVD and what a release it is. This was recorded on their “comeback” tour in 2012 before an enthusiastic crowd. It was filmed, as you might expect from the title, in Denver as part of the U.S. leg of their world tour of that year. It was the first time the band had toured for seven years. It is no understatement to say that this band is firing on all cylinders in this performance. Clearly their time apart and their other outlets have done nothing to quell their passion for the band’s output. Shirley Manson, their red-headed Scottish singer, has lost none of the qualities that bewitched so many upon release of their debut.
