Three nights ago we saw Garbage at a club on Neustadtswal. Outstanding! Opened with ‘Queer’ and closed with ‘Girls Don’t Come’, with a marvellous ‘Milk’ in-between. There’s venom in Shirley Manson’s lyrics, venom that comes from dignity’s fangs, not a pose but experience. After the show we went to Litfass. Over martinis of potato vodka and blackberry liqueur, Lilo told me why she feels such an affinity with both Katie and Shirley.
̶ I’ve always been attracted to the dark. Bordering on the sordid! Shirley’s lyrics really hit the mark for me. And the band is simply glorious!
̶ I’ll say! I particularly like the slow numbers.
̶ Not surprising. You’re romantic, Sprague.
̶ Am I?
