Garbage frontwoman Shirley Manson is a supporter of the locally owned, independent record shop. In fact, Manson just posted a message on Record Store Day’s official website, gushing over the experience of walking into a record store and picking up that prized album.
“[Record Store Day] honors the mystery, the romance and the dying art of record making,” she stated on the site. “It promotes the belief that time spent exploring a small, lovingly curated record store, discovering artists, music and ideas can arm you against anything that ever threatens to overwhelm or engulf you.”
Garbage will also be taking part of this year’s Record Store Day festivities, as Manson stated that they’ll be unleashing a special, limited edition 10” vinyl record on Record Store Day, which falls on April 20 this year. The vinyl offers a new track called “Love Like Suicide,” a cover version of Patti Smith’s “Because the Night” with the Screaming Females and a remix that a fan put together of Garbage’s “Automatic Systematic Habit” off the band’s last album, “Not Your Kind of People.” For more information on Record Store Day 2013, head to the event’s official website.
