Placebo have been making music since 1996, and have generated worldwide success... Generally more popular in the UK,placebo havereleased four full length albums, a dvd of a live performance in paris during their sleeping with ghosts tour, and now a singles collection and dvd of all their singles to date, including a couple of new songs. They have been mostly classified as outlandish by the media for exhibiting the purest form of rock and roll; sex and drugs in excess. Their songs are deep and higly emotional. Have appeared in the glam rock documentary of a David Bowie character, performed with Frank Black of the pixies. To see their videos is to be enamoured of them, to see their visual exhibition is a full glimpse of the growth and strngth of the band through the years. Definitely something to get if you have a growing interest in the band.
