I Wrote This Novel Just For You. It Sounds Pretentious But It's True. I Wrote This Novel Just For You. That's Why It's Vulgar. That's Why It's Blue.

Band: Placebo
File Under: Strangely divine

Well, it's official. I've fallen under the spell of Brian Molko & Placebo. In my defense, I did put up quite a fight. I spent years conciously avoiding any of their music. Refusing to even listen to one note. But then, without any warning, they snuck up on me. Damn you Music Choice live concerts! Damn you! Enthralled with their bruised and used style of music, I purchased Black Market Music. At times an exhausting album, Brian Molko and co. nonetheless deftly weave together hypnotic melodies and pummeling choruses. This is music to fuck and fight to. For your listening (dis)pleasure:

Placebo: Blue American

Placebo: Commercial For Levi

Placebo: Taste In Men

If you like 'Black Market Music', you have to get the 2 albums before it - 'Placebo' and 'Without you I'm Nothing'.

They kick sand in the face of 'BMM' then run off with it's girlfriend.

And try and get hold of the b-side 'slackerbitch' - ace!

Infact I might post it up later.

to die by your side

Placebo is another band I've really dug into recently. All of their singles are pretty stellar, but I really love Without You I'm Nothing from start to finish.

I have to agree. Without You I'm Nothing is a masterpiece (plus, a nice play on their name). Sleeping With Ghosts is pretty darn good, too.

I can see that you like the poem, well I have something for you, I wrote this, I hope that you like it "sometimes when I hear the wind, I can feel the call of the night, a call to turn into the being that everybody fear, a being made with darkness and the cold of the winter, the being inside is free to make anything...just watch me."
