    Raven, you haven't added me yet... Don't forget that Without You I'm Nothing!So please add me.

    Favourite songs: Teenage Angst, You Don't Care About Us and Special K (something off their first 3 albums). Ok, I'll add This Picture off the latest album.

    Does anyone like their cover cd? Their cover of Kate Bush's Coming Up That Hill is fantastic. The other covers like the Smiths covers are a bit mediocre

    And what do you think about their early videos like those of Bruise Pristine or Nancy Boy? They were pretty sick... :puke:
    Just realised there are a lot of recent videos I haven't seen:

    Sorry, I'll do it now , I love Runnign up that Hill - I think you should be repped for that!
    I like the Smiths cover too though... I'm not sure about Sinead O'Connor's Jackie... its fantastic, and really haunting but it gets a bit whiny after a while! I've got that CD in my player right now actually.
    When you watch the vids loads of them are a bit sick, and I think there was only one that I watched that didn't have sex in it!

    I've just taken a look online, and I've found the following:

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/...422083-4078806

    So I decided to order it (although I still have time to change my mind). I have absolutely no idea if I'm going to be able to use it though, so it might end up being a rather pointless venture

    I forgot they released a dvd of their videos. Definitely worth buying since they made some good videos.

    A few months ago I bought a dvd of videos off the Warp label (which includes Aphex Twin who probably has the most ****ed up videos in the world) and was disappointed

    Didn't like the one for English Summer Rain - the stupid puppetty things were weird. And it was a bit too perverse for me!

    I ended up getting that DVD (here's to hoping it'll work), along with the Pure Morning single, because it's got B-sides on that I've never heard (and want to). And it was cheap...

    Hopefully the single will be here later on today (saturday) and the DVD sometime early next week since it's from the USA... YAY!

    Placebo - horrible, horrible lyrics. Really, half the time it looks like they've written their songs with a rhyming dictionary close to hand.

    If you can overlook that, fantastic band! I love their cover with Bowie of 20th Century Boy... then of course there's Second Sight; Every Me, Every You... Mmm...
