Here we explore Beautiful Garbage the band's third, and arguably most divisive, album. Released just three weeks after the September 11 attacks, the record initially received mixed reviews from fans and critics. But so like a rosé, Beautiful Garbage has matured over time to become a beloved curio in the band's canon that celebrates self-expression, deliberate weirdness and gender fuckery.
Drew and Andy host Aural Fixation, a fortnightly podcast about music within the queer experience. Each episode, we dissect a different album which might be loved by queers, made by queers, or simply deemed as being queer. It could be an album that we both adore or one that we're discovering together – either way, we have a gay old time while we do it. For over a decade, Drew and Andy had crossed paths at shindigs and soirees across the UK, but when Drew moved down under to Andy's current home of Sydney, a 'frienaissance' and Aural Fixation were both born. This podcast is recorded and produced by two card-carrying queers with a burning passion for aural pursuits, @drew_down_under and @andrewdoyouthinkyouare. You can also follow us at @auralfixationpodcast – and if you like us, please give us a rating and review.
