In the early parts of the 1980’s Butch Vig and Duke Erikson were members of various groups. Steve Marker was a sound engineer during those days. By the time 1994 rolled into town the three of them, who had worked together before on some projects, started to record some remixes. Those sessions led to the tri deciding upon forming a new group, which ofcourse came by then name of Garbage. They wanted a woman to become the lead singer of the group and their search led them to Shirley Manson. After a few tryouts she was invited to come onboard and she did exactly that. So with the line-up complete the band recorded a demo tape and sent it out for promotion purposes. They went on to sign a global recording contract with Mushroom U.K that covered every place in the world apart from North America. That was sorted when they went to sign an agreement with Almo Sounds for that part of the world.
