Placebo: 'We're Not So Weird'

PLACEBO frontman BRIAN MOLKO is amazed contemporary hitmakers such as THE KILLERS have only just caught up with what the British band were doing a decade ago. The mascara-sporting singer insists the NANCY BOY rockers were always seen as music's odd-ones-out, even describing their fans as outcasts. But Molko believes their weird ways were ahead of their time. He says, "What we were doing in 1996 was ludicrously unfashionable then but has now become part of the everyday language of a lot of music that's consumed in the UK. "For us, being contrary bastards, we see that and it's become important for us to walk against the waves. "Placebo is music for outsides, by outsiders, and our gigs are like conventions of outcasts, which is cool."
