#889: 1996, Garbage, Stupid Girl

by Jackie_South on April 30, 2014

My posting of Brody Dalle’s Meet the Foetus/ Oh the Joy, featuring Shirley Manson, reminded me that we had yet to post anything by the Edinburgh singer here at Songs to Learn and Sing. I’ve always had a bit of time for her sticking-two-fingers-up-at-the-world-when-I-can-be-arsed attitude.

So, here’s a track from eighteen years ago, sampling the drums from Train in Vain (the track credits Strummer and Jones, but should surely have mentioned Topper too?). It is a song of withering contempt for friends squandering their potential. Great video too: looking like some sort of scratchy dirty protest.
