I've probably like Placebo if I could know WHAT the dude singing is...

I mean... I KNOW it's a man... but my mind strugles in acepting that and takes me away from the music...

I've only seen one video...so Brian's image doesn't really affect the way I hear the music. Though he is shmexily androgynous.

"Running Up that Hill" as in the Kate Bush song? If so, I have to hear it.

I'm confused by your remark there. Music is music, no matter who sings it. After all, there's been so many androgynous singers in rock (since Mick Jagger really, if you think about it) that I don't understand why it's an issue. Give them another listen and just enter the world they're singing about.

Upon looking up Dimitri Tikavoi, I found he's worked previously with Goldfrapp, John Cale (not sure who he is, but he's listed on everything I can find out about him), Placebo (of course), and most excitingly for me: Kevin Shields (former frontman/songwriter of My Bloody Valentine).

Looking forward to whatever they put out.

That's the one! It's the first track on their 'Covers' bonus CD that came with the Sleeping With Ghosts album. Definitely worth a listen.

John Cale sounds familiar. I should look him up...

I have Sleeping with Ghosts but there was no bonus CD that came with it.

Yeah, there was a 'Special Edition' of the album released that had the bonus disc. I'm sure we could send you the track easily enough.

Yeah, sorry, I forgot to specify. I have both the regular and special editions...

So John Cale is from the Velvet Underground. This producer sounds pretty promising.

In Placebo-related news...

"The forthcoming Timo Maas album titled 'Pictures' is scheduled for release on 13th June, 2005 and features 3 tracks co-written with Brian [Molko] titled:

First Day
Pictures
Like Siamese"

You can watch the video for "First Day" (and thus hear the song) at Placebo's official site, www.placeboworld.co.uk

I thought it was quite catchy, but I'm a fan of electronic music. I'm looking forward to hearing the other tunes.
