Christ, you're right - I fucking hate Placebo too. Mrs. Rodent's a huge fan and plays their records satanically.

In fact, thinking on this, that whole nineties Brit scene was stuffed with god-awful bastards.

I have to admit I was a bit of a fan back in the day. I was but a pup though and easily impressed. The music hasn't worn well anyway. I'm so jaded about music now that I don't listen to anything made after 1993.

Placebo are ok except when the singing starts, the guitar sound is good though,
