BLOOD MAKES NOISE: It's interesting quite the level of pre-publicity Garbage are doing a full quarter before the launch of Bleed Like Me. Presumably, there's a perceived need to remind people of their existence as they've been slightly-more-broken-up than we had been lead to believe: Butch Vig quit for four months:

"It's like we'd been married for ten years," he says, "and it was worth it to try one more time."

We're quite excited that there's going to be a more explicitly political edge to the new album, part of the growing reaction to the delivery of the 2004 election to the Republicans, and the Iraq War:

"You just start questioning everything after a while," Manson says. "You can't believe a fuckin' damn thing you see or hear. I got to the point where I felt like a real paranoid liberal."

One "damn thing" it was hard to see was the Edinburgh Evening News's piece on the bewilderment of Shirley's parents to her claims of a tough childhood. The piece was accompanied by pictures of Shirley smiling contendedly at ballet class. Sulking looked like the last thing on her mind.
