Garbage's lead vocalist, Shirley Manson, reveals that she is in the process of cooking new materials for her solo debut album. Commenting on her move, she says that she just wants to explore her musical talent because "being in a band, it's like being in a minor Mafia" which doesn't provide enough room for experiment.
When asked about the band's reaction, Shirley states that one of her band mates, Butch Vig, is very thrilled with her decision. Elaborating her statement, she says that Butch has sent her a quick e-mail, which read, "F***ing awesome, I love it, queenie!"
Beside rushing her solo career in music industry, Shirley has also taken part in Fox's television series entitled "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles". On the TV series, she plays as Catherine Weaver, who controls a high-tech research and development company named ZeiraCorp. Speaking of her side project, the singer says, "I think musicians in general tend to be quite sensitive, and that helps when you're trying to interact with others on screen."
