Garbage: Fillmore, San Francisco
Clare Kleinedler, Addicted To Noise, May 1996
THE NAME GARBAGE, for a band, is so, um...cartoon-like. That name is like the ACME of all band names...like you could completely see Angela of My So Called Life telling her mom that she's gonna go see a "rock band called Garbage," and then of course, it would be followed by her mother's rolling eyes and a comment like, "Oh, kids today." Then Angela would get that oh-so-misunderstood-Gen X look on her face and sulk right out of the house and into the arms of the "I'm-an-idiot-but-my-hair-looks-cool" Jordan Catolano.
