THIS IS THE NOISE THAT KEEPS ME AWAKE
BY GARBAGE WITH JASON COHEN
International best-selling rock band Garbage presents its own autobiography, a gorgeous, full-color coffee-table book with text and images galore.
FROM THIS IS THE NOISE THAT KEEPS ME AWAKE
“All I know is, if you call yourself Garbage, you’re going to start hanging out with garbage, and the next thing you know, you will be garbage.” — Carrie Elizabeth Erickson (1920-2012) to her son Douglas “Duke” Erikson, 1995
“It was 1995, we were nishing our debut album, and I was stressed. A lot of music business people had told me it was a mistake to give up full-time music production to start a band. So I ignored them all and took a leap of faith. The simplest reason was that I just wanted to be in a band with my friends. I’d been playing with Duke and Steve for several years, and now we had a new beginning with an X factor: a Scottish singer named Shirley. She seemed like a good t for our little club of mis ts. So we all took that leap.”
—Butch Vig (drummer)
ABOUT THIS IS THE NOISE THAT KEEPS ME AWAKE
Garbage are known around the world for songs that mix pop sweetness with the dour thunder of industrial music and the rhythmic punch of hip-hop. Now, for the rst time, the four band members tell the story of that music in their own words. Packed with rare photos and personal snapshots, this book examines how Garbage make their music, and how they’ve kept it together (or not) for more than twenty years.
Described by Pitchfork as “the alternative to everything,” Garbage pioneered their wildly inventive fusion of pop, heavy guitars, and hip- hop and industrial textures more than two decades ago. Their 1994 debut album—recorded in Madison, Wisconsin, by Shirley Manson, Duke Erikson, Steve Marker, and Butch Vig—made them one of the most acclaimed, adventurous, and best-selling bands of the nineties, and an international phenomenon: double platinum in the UK, US, and Australia, headlining festivals around the globe. Their six studio albums have collectively sold over fifteen million copies worldwide.
In 2012, Garbage declared their independence by founding their own label, STUNVOLUME, allowing the band to chart their own course on their own terms. After a new album, Strange Little Birds, and an extensive tour in 2016, the band continues to define a future celebrating differences.
