Rumor has it that the Scottish/American alt-rock collective GARBAGE will begin work on their fifth LP later this year. One guesses that the world will greet this news with little more than lukewarm enthusiasm, considering the rather tepid critical and commercial response to the band's last two efforts.
Still, for me, Shirley & the boys will always have a small-but-significant niche in my heart, as their music will always remind me of my brief-but-beloved residency in L.A./Marina del Rey, circa 1995-1997. Seems like a lifetime ago now, and I suppose it was.
So, now, some not-so-distant nostalgia to accompany a cold, spring-forward Sunday morn....
