The Friday OT: Garbage; Stupid Girl

A few weeks ago we featured Goldfrapp and Strict Machine as a Friday OT and I was left wondering about the sound.

And gotta love Shirley Manson. No compromise, no flimflam, no messing around, straight-up kickass singer. Success is hers, but she’s still highly underrated as an artist.
