Popping back from the pub, what do I discover in my inbox, but an email from occasional album-recorders and all-round loonies, Garbage. Last time I looked at their website, Shirley Mason was still bitching about the boys deciding to rerecord all the drums, and other studio tattle, but now it seems they’re done with that, the album’s done, and it’s almost time to go and buy it.
The only thing dulling my excitement is the realisation that every other person in the entire world already knew about this on account of paying closer attention – but what, did I miss an earlier email or something?
I’m still very excited, though. And the video for the first single is in black and white, so it must be good. Unless my computer is on the blink.
