Musical Alphabet: P

This is one of the quieter moments from Placebo’s eponymous debut album, although the rather more raucous singles Teenage Angst and Nancy Boy were the ones that first turned me on to them. This is also one of those pieces of music where I can picture a specific time and place when I listened to it. In this case it was sitting on a train on my way to work in Twickenham Studios in south west London in the autmn of 1998.

Curiously I never bought another of their CDs, as I got the impression that if you’d heard one, you’d heard them all.
