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.
Aural Fixation is a fortnightly queer music podcast that explores LGBTQI+ themes in music and pop culture. Launched in May 2019 and released fortnightly on Thursdays, each iconic instalment follows besties Drew and Andy as they discuss an album that is loved by queer people, made by queer artists, or speaks to queer experiences. British expats living and recording in Sydney, Drew and Andy bring a uniquely cross-genre and cross-hemispheric viewpoint to being gay and loving music, shared perhaps only by the Minogue sisters. Aural Fixation is recorded and produced by @drew_down_under and @andrewdoyouthinkyouare.
