pretty little thing
Brickshithouse was the first place I went to when attempting to uncover
those annoying little tidbits of information, that as a fan you just need
to know. You know of the information I refer to here. Their birthdates,
heights etc. The sort of information that really sheds so much essential
light on their music.
Well there you've got it. placebo
are a ______ band (neither British, American, or Swedish), and as they
defy categorisation geographically, they similiarly defy the what-kind-of-band-are-they
categorisation. I was lost for words when my brother asked that very question
on the day before I was to watch placebo perform in Sydney at the Metro.
A glam-rock band, with punk,
pop overtones. Perhaps. I'm not a music critic, nor do I aspire to be one.
All I know of the band is that they do a damn fine job on stage, and that
their two recordings are
on constant rotation in my bedroom. Their debut self-titled Placebo, and
their second album Without You I'm Nothing.
