RR30 Placebo – Self Titled


Originally posted to Patreon – June 2nd 2020

Remfry and Steve discuss the self-titled debut album released by Placebo, as suggested by Cameron Sheppard. Released on 17th June 1996, Steve and Remfry discuss how the band exploded in a cloud of glitter and dewy panda-eyed cynicism into a British culture obsessed with Britpop and lad culture as well as the relative merits of this record when put up against the rest of the band’s catalogue. Oh and Steve brings up the time that Brian Molko claimed that Caprice tried to ‘crack on to him’ (allegedly).
