I feel dirty for knowing who Brian Molko is.

SuperCreep 12.28.2009 03:38 AM

what's a "brian molko"?

A rare, yet very dangerous disease. A fellow poster with the nickname "Keeping it Simple" seems to be showing the symptoms.

What's up with the cowboy hat in the orgasm video?

Placebo's fan cub was called Silver Rocket.

Placebo was originally called ashtray heart, after the Beefheart classic.

Placebo have like 3 really, truly great albums.

It was on channel four about 8 years ago. It was around the time of A Thousand Leaves. It was part of a series on 'living legends', possibly called 'channel four introduces...'. There was one on Neil Young and that sort of fair. Although, having said that, ATL was released a few years before. Regardless, I'm pretty sure I was about 19 at the time, so 8-ish years ago.

Interesting story, I posted on a message board to see if anyone had taped it, as I was down the pub the night it was on. A girl replied who I later 'did the thing' with, and she's one of my best mates to this day (and would probably be mortified if she knew I was saying this).

Placebo got me into SY, as it happens. I stopped listening around the time of their second album, and stopped buying the albums around the 4th, but they'll always have a special place in my heart (what a gayer).

I have to admit that too. i remember a press shot of Molko in a dingy looking toilet with the names of about 8 artists that he loved written behind on the wall in marker. PJ Harvey Patti Smith and Sonic Youth are the ones I can remember as being there

Placebo also have a song named Ashtray Heart on their new album but it's not a cover and there's no way I'm going to listen to anything recent by Placebo.

Their first album RULES though, honestly the guitars are Goo-era Sonic Youth tenfold.

atsonicpark 12.29.2009 12:00 AM

Self-titled, without you I'm nothing, and sleeping with ghosts are great. Always great guitar tones and usually great guitar riffs. Actually, they'd be a supergreat band if the lyrics weren't so distractingly bad.

It seems most of the people who genuinely hate Placebo are from England, whereas in America people either like them or have never really heard of them. Same thing goes for Therapy?...

Anyway, I like a handful of Placebo songs, and love Therapy?

But why does it bother certain people if a mainstream band names an underground/indie band as an influence or simply dares to say they like them?

Oh, and he's wrong about SY never having recorded a song in standard. Mildred Pierce is in standard.

SuperCreep 12.29.2009 03:47 AM

ohhhhhh, placebo!

their kate bush cover sucks.

atsonicpark 12.29.2009 05:03 AM

Wasn't the self titled ep in standard, too?

It might be because they get reallly overplayed there in Europe. Well I can't speak for England but in France, whenever they release an album you can't tune on a radio or TV without hearing one of their songs. Well, I don't listen to the radio anymore, but I remember when Song To Say Goodbye was released, I even kind of liked it at first, but then I heard it so much (I did not listen to the radio at the time either but you could not go in a shop or something without hearing it!) that I came to really hate it.
