Doesn't look like garbage to me: it looks like the exact (garbage) codes
specified in your PS1.  After all \e is ^[ and \a is ^G (IIRC).

You should be careful to choose the escape sequences in your PS1
according to the escape sequences accepted by the terminal emulator in
which the shell is running (which is reflected in the $TERM envvar).
