Have you heard of a band and want to know more info?

Have some information on a band that people should know? Yes! Then come on in my Monkey chum...

These guys are kinda different from most of the things I listen to, but I really like them. Any other fans of them?

I like stuff like Nancy Boy and Pure Morning but haven't listened to much of their stuff.

I've only heard one album and it was pretty poor, a bit too boring for me really, although that song on SSX Tricky is a good one, The Bitter End is it?

I've been trying to get hold of their songs, but so far I've failed :(

Their (latest single?) Because I Want You keeps playing on MTV alot, though, but I don't really fancy it.

I think they'll be playing here (Singapore) for an event soon

I like their early stuff, with Nancy Boy or Without You I'm Nothing, they were really good 'bout ten years ago; do you remember the Brian Molko look? He was quite fat and looked like a girl, yep when this band was at his best...
But then, they kept on doing the same kind of music but it has never been as good as in the middle of the '90s.

I was a bit disappointed when I heard their brand new single for the first time (A Song To Say Goodbye) some months ago and even more disappointed by their latest CD, I didn't buy it but just listened to the radio when they broacast the full album when it was out...
I'm happy, hope you're happy too!

PLACEBO!!!!

Ok, it´s my most favourite band ever *hides* I love them even a (very) little more than I love Arctic Monkeys. They give me oxygen to live, they changed everything about me, my whole life, the music I listen to (Lol, without them I would probably never loved AM and I think I would listen to fucking lousy music) I love their music, those lyrics are really moving me and make me wanna cry. For example, every time I listen to Without You I´m Nothing, I feel like someone has just cut my vein and it can´t stop bleeding........ Their music has really put me through the way of mental developement.

Every single album of theirs is a masterpiece to me, especially the second one, with songs like Without You I´m Nothing, Allergic, Pure Morning and so on.... Meds are their best album musically, WYIN lyrically.


Yeah, I´m their die-hard fan. Well, probably not just a fan but a little stalker :P

Dear, how can you call Brian fat??? That man is far too skinny to be healthy, and it was the worst in the mid 90´s as he was on cocaine......

And yes, he definitely looked like a girl, he still does. But now it´s more androginious than ever :wink:

So here goes a pic from WYIN era:

EDIT: Brian is the one in the middle :wink:
