Dear friends, today we will end the talk about all the performances of the band Placebo in Bangkok.

I won't tell you much about this event. The first year was held in 2013 and the following year the festival was canceled. The exact reason was not given, but probably the very bad and volatile political situation in Thailand played a huge role, which also canceled the "Bangkok 100 Rock Festival" in 2007, organized by Dave McLean, the band's manager.
In 2015, the organization of the Sonic Bang Festival could not be resumed.

Bangkok seems to be quite an unfriendly place to hold international festivals, doesn't it? Nevertheless, I found a lot of mentions of organizing many other music events in Bangkok, so the locals certainly did not suffer from a desire for culture.

๐Ÿ“Œ “We’re very proud of Sonic Bang. We worked for a very long time to put the event together,” Bec-Tero’s deputy managing director Neil Thompson told XP. “Sonic Bang is a music festival where the atmosphere is as important as the music itself. Thai audiences are new to the concept of having to rush from stage to stage to catch their favourite bands; normally they just wait for the one highlight act to take the stage. Sonic Bang is about the vibe, about sharing the experience with friends and about exploring new, independent acts that might not have a chance to have their own shows, or acts that you’ve never heard of before. Also, it helps to develop the local artists. We aiming to chance the course of music festivals in Thailand and we’ll definitely continue Sonic Bang in 2014.”

Yes, according to the fans, the big and completely new adventure for them was that they had to remember the times when their favorite artists started playing. Basically, in order to catch the start of the next one, they had to leave their current favorite before the end of the show, which they - let's face it, didn't like it that much. But the festival was only one day, and in order for more than 30 artists to perform in one day, it could not have been done otherwise.

But now I have excerpts for you from some of the amazing interviews Brian gave before Placebo performance in Bangkok. Make yourself comfortable and have fun not only with these conversations, but also with the videos I shared for you to enjoy the overall atmosphere of the Sonic Bang Festival in Bangkok.

๐Ÿ“Œ Although the festival line-up is quite dense, with many big acts playing simultaneously, Molko says that he'll definitely be watching some of the other performers from the sidelines.

''Ash are old friends of mine. We toured together in the mid-'90s, so it will be a lot of fun to hang out with them again. The Pet Shop Boys are a band that I discovered when I was very young and really loved as a teenager but I've never seen them live, so I'm really looking forward to watching their gig.''
For festival-goers, he added: ''We're coming to town, and we are 'loud like love', so don't miss it.''

So this time I scoured the internet to check that "Loud Like Love" had not already been used in a musical context which, to the best of my knowledge, it hasn't. I can't remember exactly when and where and why it came to me, but it was sometime during our first phase of writing. It occurred to me that an underlying theme was emerging. We stood at a turning point: were we to follow our instincts and recognize that this theme was a manifestation of our collective sub-conscience and have the courage to explore, in our own singular manner, the subject that remains the most explored in popular song? Or were we to embrace the intellectual and steer the album’s subject matter away from its natural course out of fear of appearing cliched? Thankfully we chose the former and never once questioned that choice. And the results have exceeded our own expectations."

In our case, we toured Battle For The Sun (2009) for almost two years. I then decided to take a year off to focus on parenting, during which I wrote some of the songs that appear on Loud Like Love. We reconvened in the summer of 2012 ostensibly to record a new single as we had just signed a new record deal. That single morphed into the five-track B3 EP which we released in the autumn to placate the more militant factions of our fanbase. We then realized that we were having such a fantastic time in the studio with our new producer Adam Noble that it felt as if we had already begun the recording of album seven. And that was when we committed ourselves."

๐Ÿ”Š๐๐ซ๐ข๐š๐ง: "Because we practically fell into the recording process accidentally we all had other commitments to fulfill. Adam Noble was about to tour with the Red Hot Chili Peppers to record their live shows and we had booked a tour to promote the B3 EP. We got back together at the beginning of 2013 to finish the new album. This proved challenging as we had already set quite a high benchmark of quality with our 2012 recordings that we felt we had to surpass in some way. A great deal of self-questioning and insecurity followed. It was unpleasant at the time but it forced us out of our comfort zone and to up the ante. The result is an album that feels as if it has a side A and a side B, like an old vinyl album. And like an old vinyl album it is best consumed in one sitting."

I suspect it will be available down Patpong on September 7, though I cannot guarantee the quality of the copy.

Dear soulmates,
It’s not the first time when I’m back to a pretty much remarkable ๐๐ฅ๐š๐œ๐ž๐›๐จ ๐œ๐จ๐ง๐œ๐ž๐ซ๐ญ ๐š๐ญ ๐“๐ž๐ซ๐ฆ๐ข๐ง๐š๐ฅ ๐Ÿ“ ๐ข๐ง ๐๐˜๐‚. After not playing in the States for six years, they wanted their two only US shows in October 2013 to be really special.
This time, Placebo’s choice of the support artist wasn’t obvious enough.


⭐️๐‰๐ž๐ฌ๐ฌ๐ข๐œ๐š "๐‰๐ž๐ฌ๐œ๐š" ๐‡๐จ๐จ๐ฉ (born April 21, 1975, in California) is an American singer-songwriter and guitarist, who writes and performs in diverse musical styles. She has released five studio albums of her own, as well as live, acoustic and dual albums with others.
Hoop's style has been characterized as largely experimental with folk, rock, and electronic influences. Her early mentor, Tom Waits, described it as, "like a four-sided coin. She is an old soul, like a black pearl, a good witch or a red moon. Her music is like going swimming in a lake at night".

But we’re rather interested in what ๐๐ซ๐ข๐š๐ง thinks of her, don’t we, soulmates?๐Ÿ˜‰

๐Ÿ“ข"Music bloggers often fall into the trap of labeling artists or jamming them into a genre they have no business being in. In the end, the game of band word association proves pointless and ring false. Readers (and music lovers) are more sophisticated then given credit for. I pride myself in not going there, but for those that do, rockers Placebo make it nearly impossible to do so. Since they debuted, the stellar UK band have switched up their sound but keep it rocking throughout the journey with their signature sound and sharp-as-a-machete lyrics. Last month, the trio dropped their seventh album entitled Loud Like Love. It’s their first new album in four years, and it’s another ear murderer. Hours before they took the stage at Terminal 5 in NYC on Oct. 15, Brian Molko, Stefan Olsdal, and Steve Forrest performed a track off the album (with Jesca Hoop) and sat down for a brief interview on A-Sides. During the course of the chat, the band chatted about their new record, a recent YouTube “LOUD LIKE LOVE TV” show they put on, and thanks to this guy (points to self), Miley Cyrus."

And since … it’s sort of come from really powerful thing into all these horrible TV shows around the world to behold an idea what pop music is and what it should be, changed from actually took this into being kind of karaoke. I think in a lot of people’s minds pop music equiles a specific way of singing, that’s either singing like a boy-band or like Mariah Carey, so that’s a real shame.

Normally, the show that we perform live at any given time is pretty much the songs that we can bear to play over that specific time when you come to see us. That’s simply because there’re a lot of songs you just have no emotional connection to anymore, and often they are your most commercially successful. But we feel that to play them, even if the fans may want them, would be a mechanical act, it wouldn’t be a truthful act, we would feel like we’re lying. We need to have an emotional connection to what we’re performing otherwise it just feels wrong.

Obviously, Brian was in a particularly playful, naughty mood. He started with the idea of speaking to the microphone that was pinned to the extremely low jumpsuit neckline of an Italian lady (Simona Ventura) who interviewed him.
As for the new album [Battle For The Sun], he said that it’s “fantastico” and going to change rock history. “How wonderful it is! They’re modest as always,” noticed an interviewer. Like it wasn’t enough of the game, Brian got closer to Simona’s breast and came up with another brilliant thought: “All of a sudden I want a glass of milk…”๐Ÿ˜‚

Over the years, the format of the program was changed into a more youthful version. Not only famous footballers and sports journalists but Italian and international pop and rock stars have been its guests. The program airs from the TV studio 3 of the Rai production center in Milan.

Brian was pretty often asked to tell about For What It's Worth in the interviews. I decided to pick up some quotes to follow a playful theme we started with. I hope it’s ok for you๐Ÿ˜‰

With Battle For The Sun, I started out wanting to make quite a libidinous record. A celebration of all sexuality, because it's such a part of life, the beauty of life. So it's there. It's there in songs like 'Kitty Litter', 'Speak In Tongues', 'For What It's Worth', "Come on lay with me / 'cause I'm on fire"? Do you need me to write that down for you, man? Perhaps the sexuality is more subtle; it's not coming at you in terms of a transvestite on crystal meth.

๐Ÿ“ข[Brian is] showing a wide, not very innocent smile, as if he’s waiting for something particular. No. Please not. Blushing. On what the line “your god-shaped hole tonight” aims, seems to be the headword hoped for, at least Brian laughs happily: “I already sensed this line would be open for interpretations. But it’s not about vaginas or other specific orifices of the body.” His hands are meanwhile forming a circle, he pauses, “why am I doing this right now?” Stefan blames the Freudian subconscious. “No, the expression aims on the hole everyone carries in their souls. A lot of people fill it with God, Jesus, religion, others with humans, drugs or alcohol. It’s the little piece of you which is missing. The place of birth of all desires and all wishs and emotions – that’s what it relates to for me, but already when I wrote it, I was sure most people would understand it sexually. For me, the song is about the libidinous party of life. That’s not sexual, but rather like embracing the universe.” This image of the libido surprises everyone and goes under in collective snorting. “That’s as well a way to push your buttons before intercourse” Stefan giggles. But the piece didn’t come out of emotional or erotic tension, but: “Boredom, the most boring six hours of bus ride between New York and Boston. I was so annoyed that I wrote the song out of frustration.”

Did you know about this kind of Brian’s connection to Italy?๐Ÿ˜Š

Today, I want to tell you about Placebo concert in this beautiful city of Bologna on November 23th, 2013, watch some performances together with you and enjoy a stunning photo taken by photographer Nino Saetti on that day๐Ÿ˜
To be precise, the show took place in Casalecchio di Reno, little town very close to Bologna, at the Unipol Arena (previously known as Futurshow Station).

I translated a nice ✨๐‘๐„๐•๐ˆ๐„๐–✨ of this concert titled ‘๐๐ฅ๐š๐œ๐ž๐›๐จ ๐ž๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐ž๐œ๐ญ ๐š๐ญ ๐ญ๐ก๐ž ๐Ÿ๐ŸŽ ๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽ ๐”๐ง๐ข๐ฉ๐จ๐ฅ ๐€๐ซ๐ž๐ง๐š’ that was published at ๐‘ณ๐’‚ ๐‘น๐’†๐’‘๐’–๐’ƒ๐’ƒ๐’๐’Š๐’„๐’‚ a day after the event.
⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️
Twenty years of career in one evening. An English band chose the Due Torri [*see a note down below] as the only Italian date to play and sing the most famous songs, from "Twenty years" to "Song to say goodbye", but also those taken from the last album as "Too many friends". Even if you had forgotten to take your meds, as Brian Molko asks himself in "Meds", you can count on the Placebo effect. And it works, and very well.

It's hard to be disappointed if all the songs that have made the history of the British band are in the setlist. Present, close and distant past, all the ages of Placebo are explored, twenty years of career summarized in one hundred and five minutes. From "Twenty years", in fact, the first to deserve the ovation of the ten thousand visitors of the Unipol Arena, which hosts the only Italian date, up to "Song to say goodbye". Which, contrary to what the title promises, is not a farewell but an introduction to a killing sequence that also includes "Special K" and "The bitter end" before the break. Ok, it's a shame that Molko misses the last verse on the way, but he can be forgiven. His performance is flawless characterized by the unmistakable vocal timbre. You may not like it, but in that case it makes no sense to listen to Placebo.

Among the songs from the new album, the most convincing is “Too many friends” (yes, the one where Molko says her computer thinks he's gay). At this point a separate chapter opens. Perhaps it’s kind of sick, as well as useless, to complain at every concert of smartphone screens stretched out to the sky. Once there were lighters, and some even were bothered by them (Noel Gallagher said "Put out those damn lighters, you're not at Elton John’s concert"). Now, there are cellphone pixels. They are not pleasant, but there is a reason for them. Here, it is surprising that relatively few of them light up during a song that is an undisputed hit, as well as the one with the best live impact of the evening, "Every you every me". And then, on "Too many friends" coming next, in fact, they illuminate the parterre like a starry sky. Maybe the first one was the song closest to the heart of the large portion of the audience over thirty, while the next one - of the youngest. But there is a semantic short circuit in that sea of smartphones ready to post the video on Facebook just as Molko sings, in clear controversy with the social networks, "๐‘ฐ ๐’ˆ๐’๐’• ๐’•๐’๐’ ๐’Ž๐’‚๐’๐’š ๐’‡๐’“๐’Š๐’†๐’๐’…๐’” / ๐‘ป๐’๐’ ๐’Ž๐’‚๐’๐’š ๐’‘๐’†๐’๐’‘๐’๐’† ๐’•๐’‰๐’‚๐’• ๐‘ฐ'๐’๐’ ๐’๐’†๐’—๐’†๐’“ ๐’Ž๐’†๐’†๐’• / ๐‘จ๐’๐’… ๐‘ฐ'๐’๐’ ๐’๐’†๐’—๐’†๐’“ ๐’ƒ๐’† ๐’•๐’‰๐’†๐’“๐’† ๐’‡๐’๐’“” that “๐‘พ๐’‰๐’‚๐’•'๐’” ๐’•๐’‰๐’† ๐’…๐’Š๐’‡๐’‡๐’†๐’“๐’†๐’๐’„๐’† ๐’‚๐’๐’š๐’˜๐’‚๐’š / ๐‘พ๐’‰๐’†๐’ ๐’‚๐’๐’ ๐’•๐’‰๐’† ๐’‘๐’†๐’๐’‘๐’๐’† ๐’…๐’ ๐’‚๐’๐’ ๐’…๐’‚๐’š ๐‘ฐ๐’” ๐’”๐’•๐’‚๐’“๐’† ๐’Š๐’๐’•๐’ ๐’‚ ๐’‘๐’‰๐’๐’๐’†.”

At the end of the concert, only one doubt remains: what was the use of the net that was occasionally dropped from above to stand between the stage and the audience? If in the second part of the show it is useful for visuals with projections, in the first it’s not helpful to obscure the view. Like some kind of huge mosquito net. But it’s ok. And when the first Union Jack [flag of the UK] appears in the end, you think about the show that went totally smoothly, probably more than necessary, which seems to be a peace treaty made after a stormy past in Italy (the smashed guitars in Sanremo, the insults at the Heineken Jammin’ Festival). Maybe, yes, Molko's grandmother comes from Bologna. A plate of tortellini makes everyone better.

The Torre degli Asinelli (97.2 meters) is the tallest leaning medieval tower in the world. It was built between 1109 and 1119 and is one of the twenty towers that have survived the centuries. The Torre degli Asinelli has a little sister, the Garisenda tower. The pair of towers is a universally recognized symbol of Bologna for both visitors and locals.

Last week, we looked at how ๐‘ซ๐’‚๐’—๐’† ๐‘ด๐’„๐‘ณ๐’†๐’‚๐’, the manager of Placebo, decided to organize the first rock festival in Bangkok, the place where he lives and which he loves.
In 2006, he succeeded and of course, planned this amazing event on the next years.
But for some reasons the festival had no sequel.
Already in 2006, the festival was organized in a very difficult political situation, which continued to deteriorate over the next two years. Due to the military coup, Dave McLean had to cancel the festival planned in 2007.
In 2008, the political situation was still very unstable and a state of emergency was established in Thailand due to ongoing anti-government demonstrations.
It was clear that Dave had to give up the festival again, and this time it was a decision forever๐Ÿ˜”.

But fortunately, there was another opportunity for the fans in Bangkok to attend Placebo concert in 2010, during their Asian tour, which began immediately after the end of the Australian tour on March 5, 2010 in Tokyo, Japan.
Brian was extremely tired and exhausted, so two days later he collapsed on stage during his performance in Osaka๐Ÿ’”.
However, he managed to miraculously recover - he deserves a huge admiration for this (I won't mention how much I want to cry every time I see a video from Osaka) - and the band were able to continue touring in Taipei, Taiwan. Through Malaysia and Singapore, we get to the performance that today's post will be about.

It was a traveling festival that took place in one of the Asian cities every year.
The aim of this and the following years was to invite young beginning artists from the given place, who would not otherwise have much chance to assert themselves, to enroll in the given year and present their works throughout the year until the event itself. Not only musicians but also artists, photographers and filmmakers could present themselves. The goal for these young Asian artists was to reach the finals, which then took place in one of the world's most famous cities, such as London.

And it wouldn't be perfect without these two interviews Brian gave during this Asian tour:

๐Ÿ“Œ Britain's Placebo returns to Bangkok for the Tiger Translate music and art festival on Saturday
Indie spirits will get their kicks on Saturday at the third Tiger Translate, the outdoor festival where innovative arts and sovereign music clash.
The vast parking space behind the Esplanade mall will be a massive venue for artists and musicians.
Apart from graphic installations, displays and street art by local independent groups, the festival will be booming with eclectic music all night starting at 6pm.

๐‘Šโ„Ž๐‘Ž๐‘ก'๐‘  ๐‘ƒ๐‘™๐‘Ž๐‘๐‘’๐‘๐‘œ ๐‘ข๐‘ ๐‘ก๐‘œ?
Brian: "We're about to get on a plane from Sydney to Hong Kong, then it's over to Tokyo, and we're to play four shows in Japan.
We've just finished the Soundwave Festival in Australia, where we played to 50,000 people per show.
After the Japan shows we play in Taiwan, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur then we have a short break before flying to Latin America to play in Chile, Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Peru and Venezuela, then back to Europe to play in a few places we've never played before, like Morocco and Kosovo!"

Brian: "We all have projects that we work on, but they're put to the side anytime Placebo is recording and touring. When you have something as successful and fulfilling as Placebo, it's difficult to say, "Let's have a three-year break." Although we have a busy schedule and it is pretty tiring at times, it is very exciting and enjoyable visiting all these countries and experiencing different cultures."

Brian: "I guess my main dislike is that people can get our music for free! I can never quite understand this. If I have to fly to New York, I can't just walk on the plane without buying a ticket. If I want to buy a car, I just can't walk in the show room and drive off - I have to pay for it. So how come anyone can download our music for free?
Luckily Placebo makes the bulk of the money from touring, and so far nobody has worked out a way of duplicating the ultimate live experience, and they never will!"

Brian: "The festival has lots of Thai acts on the bill whom I have heard of before, due to my numerous visits to Thailand. The gig will be fantastic and it will be the last show of our Australia-Southeast Asia tour. We're very much looking forward to coming to Bangkok because we loved our last trip so much!"

Brian: "Yes, we spent five days at Karma Studio in Chon Buri. The studio was amazing and we recorded three tracks before leaving to play at the Soundwave Festival in Australia. The combination of a top quality studio and great environment made for a very productive five days. We'd love to record there again."

For today, I say goodbye to you and look forward to next Wednesday, which will end the Bangkok adventure with the band Placebo.
Personally, I hope in my heart that one day this whole tragic situation with the Pandemic will end and I will be able to write about new Placebo adventures - and not just those in Bangkok.

”The metric system” tells the story of a guy who lives in Los Angeles and sells his sperm to celebrity lesbians, so they can have children.
A strange plot, isn't it? But Brian really enjoyed working on the song. In an interview with French magazine “Les Inrockuptibles” he said that it was big fun for him. "Dimitri is my buddy. We have the same sense of humour, porn makes us laugh. What is strange is that people, the media, everybody took us very seriously," he added.

On the album "๐˜—๐˜ฐ๐˜ด๐˜ช๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ๐˜ด" you can also find another collaboration: Brian sings the Serge Gainsbourg cover "Je t'aime, moi non plus" together with Italian actress and singer Asia Argento. She later played a role in the music video of Placebo's song "This picture". It's also worth mentioning the fact that Trash Palace founder Dimitri Tikovoi is not only a close friend of Brian but also produced the band's album “Meds” in 2006 and several of the band's early singles.

"The artist in question is a French named Dimitri, whose nickname is The Vibrator. He made an electronic record in French about pornography on wich I figure as well as John Cale, Jean-Louis-Murat. We wrote texts for Dimitri. I wrote one a la William Burrough.
It is the story of a guy who lives in Los Angeles and who sells his sperm to celebrity lesbians so they can have children: that's the story. But it was very interesting to work on this record because it's a kind of music that is very different from what we do usually, and I love this kind of music."

"When I worked with Placebo, I had Brian Molko listen to a song, asking him if he would work on it with me. He found the project very interesting. He said "Great! It's about sex! I want to do something like that too" and we did the song Metric system."
