The 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, their marital status 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.
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.
