Dissolved Girl: Garbage in Toronto

From one strong frontwoman to another, here's Garbage. Although the band formed in Madison, Wisconsin, Shirley Manson continues our ongoing trend of great Scots. While the formula of loud guitars and female vocals seems prevalent here, the AMG review for Beautiful Garbage really touches on their complexity. "They consciously picked up elements from shoegazing, trip-hop, and indie rock...there are elements of My Bloody Valentine crashing up against Tricky." Well, I can't argue with that.

This set was recorded in Toronto on November 11th, 1995, in what was really the band's infancy. The guitars really snarl, and Shirley's powerful delivery syncs up nicely.
