Garbage will be performing on "Saturday Night Live" tonight.

You Look So Fine

The first picture from the forthcoming video for "You Look So Fine" was released today in the NME. The video co-stars Kelly Slater, surf champion and musician, whose band the Surfers had their Songs From the Pipe released on Epic last year. The video was directed by Stephane Sednouai (Queer, Milk) in Los Angeles.

"You Look So Fine" will be released on Mushroom Records in May. The single features a remix of the track by Fun Lovin' Criminals, plus two new songs recorded whilst in Southern California: "Soldier Through This" and "Get Bizzy With The Fizzy" (title subject to change).

Garbage Live In Paris

The first official transmissions of "MTV Presents Garbage Live" will be aired as follows:

  • April 3 on MTV Central
  • April 7 and 9 on MTV Italy
  • April 21 on MTV UK and MTV Ireland
  • April 25 on MTV Nordic

The show was recorded at Le Zenith, Paris in January 1999.


Garbage's next single "You Look So Fine" features in the end 'party' sequence of the film "Entrapment", released in the US on April 30th by 20th Century Fox. The film, starring Sean Connery and Catherine Zeta Jones, is a thriller set in the last days of the millennium.

Sean Connery personally requested the use of the track in the film. It turns out that he is a huge Garbage fan and was often playing "Version 2.0" on the set of the movie, accompanied by occasional outbursts of singing and the dancing of jigs.

[ As I work for the company that provided the visual effects sequences for "Entrapment", I have known of this for quite a long time but have been under a nondisclosure. As post is nearing completion, and licensing with Mushroom should have cleared, this is now 'OK' to post. I just love the idea of Sean Connery bouncing up and down to "I Think I'm Paranoid"... - Ian ]
