HAPPY B. To NME Icon SHIRLEY MANSON

27 August 2021

Shirley Manson was born on 26 August 1966 in Edinburgh, Scotland .

Happy 55 to the fabulous frontwoman/lyricist of glowing rockers Garbage.

She was the first ever artist to receive the NME Icon Award. This says
it all about Shirley‘s outstanding career, but it was also an appreciation of
who she is as human being. A caring and combative feminist. And, yes,
she’s gorgeously beautiful and sexy. Genuine coolness.

To celebrate here are 3 fantastic Shirly Manson moments…

– I THINK I’M PARANOID –

– BLEED LIKE ME –

– NO GODS NO MASTERS –

9 May 2018

BAND: GARBAGE

ALBUM: VERSION 2.0

RELEASED: 11 May 1998 – 20 years ago

PRESS:

Rolling Stone: “The songwriting has improved, but Manson remains the highlight,
her seductive, emotive singing evoking new wave greats and appropriating the band’s
complex sounds into a well-crafted, original rock album”

Spin: “The songs are better developed than on the band’s debut, while showcasing
their passionate, avant-garde sounds and Manson’s personalized yet relatable lyric…”

The Village Voice: “The metallic, discordant music suits Manson’s aggressive
sexuality and allows listeners to experience sadomasochism vicariously through.”

The Age: “Personality loaded” sonic spectacle… the album
salutes the new millennium with futuristic nuance…”

Time:The music is exceptional because of the songs that are
gloomy and sexual yet lively and introspective.”

TURN UP THE VOLUME says: “A turbulent work of mixed emotions and amplified
pop exorcism. Both gloomy and bright, heavy-hearted and elevating, flamboyant
and magnetic with Shirley Manson as the charismatic, outspoken and hypnotizing
femme fatale in the middle of it all.”
