(social board version)
the question is, do you like the album called placebo by the band called placebo. yes you do.
a riddle with only one answer
my mate Lee said 'have you seen that bird out of that band place bo?' he pronounced it PLACE BOW (as in bow and arrow)
Placebo's debate came out in 1996
I'm not some placebo fact machine
we're all about placebo in this thread
in case you're interested, i remembered to listen to them because of this reason.
1) i decided to watch 'he thought of cars' by blur on jules holland. so i did. then placebo doing 'nancy boy' (on jules) was linked.
I know that written down they dont look that much, and I know they can produce fantastically bad lyrics too, but the way he sings some of those lines they just work so perfectly.
the lyrics dont really mean much but brian molko sings it like it's the most important thing in the world. fucking great song.
also i'm pretty sure my old housemate has an every me every you tattoo
(and yeah, I was 21 in 1996) was more, "lol, check out all those dudes into heavy rock worried about their sexuality after they thought Brian Molko was a woman"... :D
As my girlfriend saw them play where is my mind and made me put on surfer rosa (I didnt want to listen to it cos steve albini called it boring) and it BLEW MY FUCKING MIND. Great anecdote. No one steal it.
have you listened to that album?
Thank you Placebo.
does it contain the song about pure morning or soemthing.. a friend in needs a friend indeed.. etc?

I'd never thought about a link between the Pixies and Placebo before.
Today's gonna be a good day! Thanks so much!
this subthread is pure gold
Brian Molko sounds a bit like Lois Griffin.
It doesn't mean anything.
i thought you were somehow cussing either placebo or cruel intentions
besides I was so obsessed with Cruel Intentions that I literally knew all the words to it.
and am surprised I remember the words to Every you, Every me.
They sound great and look great too
he seems so sweet and vulnerable as well as being dirty
and not speed
because I probably needed that £12 to buy The Bends or The Great Escape.
They had a singles compilation out 5 or 6 years back I think. I remember it playing in a record store and thinking, "You know, most of these songs sound great," but I still didn't buy it. I'd never actually listen to Placebo at home, basically.
Makes them sound weak
& got this bloke to put on surfer rosa after seeing them play where is my mind
he thought it would be boring cos of something steve albini said
pfft, didnt even know that i was a man
because exactly the same thing happened to me, when I was another disser, but about 10 minutes later
Also a big fan of Placebo's fifth album.
Also remembered a little story. iirc, i was 16 when Sleeping With Ghosts came out. I was just properly getting into music then, remember being in HMV on Market St and trying to decide between getting that or the first Athlete album. Fucking hell, imagine if I'd got the Athlete album. I'd be crying around on the music board trying to justify Coldplay's continued existance, my bed soaked in piss
