please recommend me something as good as every me, every you. i heard a new song the other day on the radio which might not really be new. i dont know the name of it or who sings it for sure but i swear it was placebo. same voice. too distinctive to be anyone else.

my favourite would be 'special k'...i think it's just as good as 'every you every me'

the only placebo thing i've heard that i didn't like was probably their horrific cover of the smiths' 'bigmouth strikes again' though

Hey, I remember hearing one of their songs and loving it! Sorry, can't remember the name at the moment. I'll go check and see if I can find out anything...

*cue theme from "Miami Vice"*


EDIT: Err...nvm. It was a song called "Narcotic" by Liquido.
I think I'll crawl back into my hole, now...

*cue theme from "Grumpier Old Men"*

I listen to more of them last night. I really like them.

There current US tour schedule sucks...they are avoiding the northern/middle of the US (I think the closest they came might have been Toronto...but no Chicago, Minneapolis, Detroit, St. Lois, etc. etc. etc.).

Placebo actually took their time to come to Singapore once, unfortunately that was in 1997 and I hadn't even heard of them then. Plus I think they played a 21+ show.

Quite a year though, afterwards they had Ash and Primal Scream come over. We never get gigs like that anymore...(read journal for latest Singapore gig info)

Indeed!

About their tour dates, earlier in spring of 2003, I think it was, they played about ten shows in the U.S. All of these shows were in huge cities like NYC, etc. I think that this time they're trying to swing around to some of the smaller major cities (Dallas, Phoenix, etc.) I'm not sure about that, though--I'd have to look at the tour schedule to be sure--but that's the theory I've got for now.

I'm excited that more and more people at interference seem to be getting into Placebo. They've got a certain je ne sais quois, and I can't get enough of them. If anyone wants recommendations, I'm happy to give a few. I think I told mofo to buy Sleeping With Ghosts, their newest album, and work his way backward to their older albums if he liked them.

I could go on and on and on...so I'd better stop now.

When I form the Weatherkens(TM), we'll come to Singapore.
