  • Garbage is back where it all began today, as their 20th Anniversary of Version 2.0 tour comes to Madison for an 8pm show at The Sylvee @thesylvee, the recently opened venue just a few blocks up E. Washington Avenue from where Butch Vig (@uwmadison ‘80) & Steve Marker (@uwmadison ‘89) started Smart Studios in 1983. We have all of Garbage’s records and DVDs in our holdings, both as part of our circulating collection and our Wisconsin Music Archives. We also have the lavish coffee table book This Is the Noise That Keeps Me Awake, by Garbage with Jason Cohen. Brooklyn, NY: Akashic Books, 2017. [ML421.G35 T55 2017] The band took its name from an entry Vig made in his studio journal when he, Marker, and their longtime friend and collaborator Duke Erikson started generating and recording music in 1993 for what would take final form once they brought Shirley Manson into the fold. #garbage #garbageband #butchvig #stevemarker #dukeerikson #shirleymanson #wisconsinmusicarchives

Bloomington: Indiana University Press, 2004.
