SOMA October 2015

2015-10-SOMA_magazine-cover Shirley Manson est en interview dans le magazine américain SOMA, volume 29.5 de octobre 2015. Shirley pose sous l'objectif du photographe Joseph Cultice.

Shirley Manson
Playing with Garbage

shirley_manson-2015-10-by_joseph_cultice-SOMA_magazine-1Before he launched Garbage, drummer Butch Vig was already the well-known producer of Nirvana’s Nevermind and The Smashing Pumpkins’ Gish. Smart Studios, the recording complex in Madison, Wisconsin he ran with guitarist Steve Marker, was ground zero for the alternative rock scene when Vig, Marker and multi-instrumentalist Duke Erickson decided to start a band that would turn the conventions of indie rock inside out and upside down. As their sound developed, they mashed up techno, grunge, trip hop, avant-garde guitar noise, pop music, show tunes and samples of random sounds, into something that sounded, at first, like garbage. Hence the band’s self-deprecating name. When Marker saw a video of Scottish singer Shirley Manson and her band, Angelfish, they invited her to Wisconsin for an audition. Her understated presence was a perfect counterpoint to the band’s loud, pop impulses and a groundbreaking band was born. Manson spoke to SOMA about the twentieth anniversary of the band’s eponymous debut album and her thoughts on being an iconic stage presence.

Butch Vig, Duke Erickson and Steve Marker had been playing together for ten years when they asked you to join the band. Was that intimidating ?
It was, as it would be for any musician that was unproven and inexperienced. I’d been in a band for a decade or more, so as time wore on, my experience allowed me to hold my own with these three men I found myself working with, but it was unbelievably overwhelming. When they called me, I was stumbling from one opportunity to the next, hoping for the best, so who knows what would have happened without that phone call.

You’d never written a song before joining the band. Can you describe the songwriting process ?
I sang in the other bands I was in. When [the guys] asked me point blank, “Do you write?” I knew I had to wing it and said, “Yeah.” They took me to Steve’s house. They had everything set up in the basement and ran a cable upstairs to the living room of the house. It was just long enough to put my mike at the bottom of the stairs so they could shut the door to the basement. I had headphones to hear my vocals, but they had to come to the top of the stairs and shout down to me to give instructions. I had to make up lyrics to the songs on the spot. As an audition, it was a bit of a washout. I wished them well and went back to Scotland. Their manager called a few weeks later and asked how it had gone. I told him it was a disaster. He said the band felt the same way, but they felt a connection to me. They wanted to know if I’d come back and have another shot. I did, and the rest is history.

shirley_manson-2015-10-by_joseph_cultice-SOMA_magazine-2 Combining so many styles was a risk when Garbage started. Did you have any hesitation when you heard the direction they were going in ?
When I first became involved, they hadn’t started the sonic experimentation yet. The songs were straightforward chord progressions, with no hint of where the music was going to end up. It was exciting to see all the parts come together as they brought in the loops and samples. It’s only in retrospect we realize that the first Garbage album was an archetype for where contemporary music was going.

Did you have a conscious sense of style when you started playing with Garbage ? How did your stage
persona develop ?
I’m always mystified as to why anyone thinks I’m a stylish person. If you look back at the old footage of the band and me, you’ll see there was no style to be had at all. [Laughter.] Most musicians at the time wore plaid shirts and ripped jeans. I was in lipstick and makeup and singing about the abuse by the priests in the Catholic Church. The clothing I bought on the cheap at thrift stores. I couldn’t afford to buy the clothes I wanted. Everybody flipped over the dress I wore in the “Stupid Girl” video, which I got at Rampage, a teen clothing store, for $21.99. I believe it was the full thrust of my personality that infiltrated the clothing, but that’s all in retrospect. I think it was what I was saying and how I was carrying myself that defined my style, not what I was wearing.

Will you play the first album from beginning to end on this upcoming tour? Have you ever done it before ?
The short answer is, “Yes and no.” When we start rehearsals, we’ll have to learn songs like “Alien Sex Fiend” and “Stroke of Luck” that we never played live.

How is work on the new album going? Will you be playing any new songs on the tour ?
The tour and celebration is focused one-hundred-percent on the first record. It’s a nod to our history. It’s very selfish. There will be no new songs. The new album is written, produced and recorded. We have yet to finish the mixing, but the bulk of it is done. The intention is to release it early in 2016.

The Weeknd Can't Feel My Face

theweeknd  Voici un titre qui cartonne cet été et que j'adore, celui du canadien The Weeknd et de sa chanson "Can't Feel My Face", sorti en single le 8 juin 2015, extrait du deuxième album de l'artiste intitulé "Beauty Behind the Madness". Plusieurs auteurs sont à l'origine du titre: Ali Payami, Savan Kotecha, Max Martin, Abel Tesfaye (le vrai nom de The Weeknd) et Peter Svensson; produit par Payami, Martin and Svensson. Que de monde pour écrire et composer une chanson ! Et pour compte... le titre cartonne un peu partout dans le monde: Canada, USA, Nouvelle Zélande, Afrique du Sud, Australie, Pays-Bas, Norvège, Irelande, Angleterre et passe abondamment sur les ondes radio en France. Musicalement, elle est en mode mineure et possède un tempo de 108 beate par minute !
C'est un pur titre pop, aux influences dance et rock, qui n'est pas sans rappeler le style de Michael Jackson. Le clip video a été dévoilé le 28 juillet 2015: réalisé par Grant Singer, on y voit The Weeknd chantant dans un bar devant un public lassé et plutôt méprisant, qui l'écoute à peine, sauf une fille qui semble subjuguée (interprétée par Chanel Iman), et ce, jusqu'à ce que l'un des spectateurs lui jette son briquet allumé et que le chanteur s'enflamme en continuant de chanter et danser ! Tout le monde se lève et se met alors à danser; puis le chanteur sort du bar, toujours en étant enflammé.

The Weeknd, de son vrai nom Abel Tesfaye, est un chanteur, producteur et DJ canadien d'origine éthiopienne, né en 1990 et déjà à la carrière très prolifique ! Influencé dès son plus jeune âge par la soul, le funk, le hip hop, l'indie rock et le post punk, il débute dans la musique à l'âge de 20 ans en rappant et postant ses chansons sur youtube. Il parvient vite à sa faire un nom dans le milieu, épaulé par d'autres artistes comme le rappeur Drake. Il a déjà sorti deux albums sous son nom et a collaboré sur de nombreux albums de divers artistes (Ariana Grande, Drake, MIA etc...). Sa musique mêle du RNB, Hip-Hop, Rock et du Trip-Hop. Un artiste à suivre...

And I know she'll be the death of me, at least we'll both be numb
And she'll always get the best of me, the worst is yet to come
But at least we'll both be beautiful and stay forever young
This I know, (yeah) this I know

She told me, "Don't worry about it."
She told me, "Don't worry no more."
We both knew we can't go without it
She told me you'll never be alone-oh-oh, whoa

I can't feel my face when I'm with you
But I love it, but I love it, oh
I can't feel my face when I'm with you
But I love it, but I love it, oh

And I know she'll be the death of me, at least we'll both be numb
And she'll always get the best of me, the worst is yet to come
All the misery was necessary when we're deep in love
Yes I know (yes I know), yeah, I know

She told me, "Don't worry about it."
She told me, "Don't worry no more."
We both knew we can't go without it
She told me you'll never be alone-oh-oh, whoa

I can't feel my face when I'm with you
But I love it, but I love it, oh
I can't feel my face when I'm with you
But I love it, but I love it, oh

I can't feel my face when I'm with you
But I love it, but I love it, oh
I can't feel my face when I'm with you
But I love it, but I love it, oh

She told me, "Don't worry about it."
She told me, "Don't worry no more."
We both know we can't go without it
She told me you'll never be alone-oh-oh
Whoa

I can't feel my face when I'm with you
But I love it, but I love it, oh
I can't feel my face when I'm with you
But I love it, but I love it, oh

I can't feel my face when I'm with you
But I love it, but I love it, oh
I can't feel my face when I'm with you
But I love it, but I love it, oh
